Wanderers Girls come close to success

Playing two games in pool matches the Caledonia Cougars captained by Wanderers Emily Dark, Started with a 4-4 draw in game 1, followed by a 2-0 victory over the Welsh Celtic Jaguars. Earning the Girls a place in the final against Saxon Tigers,

The U17 girl’s final was nail biting hockey, both sides evenly matched eager for goals but neither side slipping up. A spectacular chance came in the second quarter from Emily Dark’s wonder pass from her half to Ruth Blaikie to pick up at the far side of the circle; however she was unable to get a shot on target. It was end to end play with Saxon athlete Renee Ojikutu coming close but finding the ball just centimetres from the tip of her stick. 

In the last quarter both sides threw everything into it. Captain of the Courgars Lexi Sabatelli showed off her outstanding 3D skills as she danced through four of the Tigers defence for her reverse strike just to go inches over the crossbar. The final score ended 0-0 which meant a shoot out was to decide who would be champions. The Saxon Tigers won the shootout 4-3. 

Emily, finished the tournament as joint top scorer in what seems like a very competitive competition for the advancement to all the girls competing.
