Hitchin Belles U9`s Whites v Berkhamsted
By Simon Gooderham
U9 Whites won their first game of the season with a superb performance against a very evenly matched Berkhamsted.
Hitchin went ahead in the first quarter when Zoe scored 2 great goals with the second being a great team goal with everyone on the pitch passing it to each other for Zoe to get it and slot it into the goal.
The second and third quarters were very end to end with Hitchin scoring 2 more goals via Maia and Bella but that didn’t stop Berkhamstead scoring 3 making the game go 4-3 to Hitchin into the final quarter.
The first 5 minutes of the last quarter the girls were defending brilliantly to try and make sure they got the win. Hannah and Ebba worked hard to stop Berkhamstead getting an equaliser stopping the ball several times on the line. Hitchin were lucky that with a great clearance from Matilda that Bella ran half the pitch on her own and added to her goal from earlier. The final 2 minutes were close but Megan found space and ran into it passing the ball to Bella who got another goal to complete her hat trick.
An amazing performance from all the girls and they all got POTM.
