The Godolphin & Latymer School Girls-U14A vs  Middx. Prelims
On: Thursday, 05 Oct 2023
Venue: Away

The tournament started off with a shaky start, taking a loss to a strong St Pauls side (7-5). The girls recognised the level of competition and stepped it up for the next game against Channing, winning comfortably 8-5, with improvements made from the first game but still too many errors. The next two games we won and played better (CLGS 3 - G&L 5) (LUS 5 - G&L 9), but were complacent and did not work as hard as they should have against the other schools.

Our next loss was against South Hampstead High School, losing 10-4. This was not our strongest game. There were quite a lot of unforced errors which made the games closer than they should have been, with work on ball placement and movement being our biggest issues.

Our two final games were against NHEHS and FHS (Regents) in which we won both games (9-4) and (5-2). I think the girls played their best game against NHEHS; they worked together and forced turnover. Their work rate in defence to win ball and get every rebound which was taken down the court to our shooters. Our movement was more dynamic and the girls intensity throughout the game was maintained.

We finished off Middlesex Prelims in 3rd place in which the top three teams get through. We are looking forward to what the girls can offer in the future and watch their hard work and commitment at training be rewarded through their performance.
