Final Score: Eagles 79 v CD Phoenix 17 (W)
On Saturday the 16th September the U16s had their first match of the season in the South Region league, at home against CD Phoenix.
The U16’s returned to Redbridge Sports Centre to take part in the U16 Essex Open Tournament.
The day was scorching! Over 30 degrees and 9 matches to play. Plenty of wet towels over the girls who managed to keep their cool throughout the tournament. Supporters looked on from the relative comfort of the shade and still managed to melt!
Eagles won all their games and were crowned Essex Open Champions. Nice to have support from one of our neighbouring teams, MK Netters, who were runners up.
Maria and Lisa were happy coaches and the last match, all the girls swapped positions with much laughter! A good day out but very happy to be home and in the cool. Well played and thank you to the coaches and supporters.
Our U16’s and Beth from Senior 2’s took to the courts for the Berkshire Prem Tournament.
This tournament is an adult tournament but our girls looked comfortable and relaxed throughout most of their games.
They were led by Beth and managed their own substitutions and positions. Athena were our tough competition and we were beaten in the last match which meant we went into the semi finals as runners up of our group.
We were able to out play our opposition in the semi’s so our final was to be a re match against Athena! We knew it would be tough and started off strongly. Athena stepped up their game and were more experienced. In the end pulled away to win 9 goals to our 6.
Lots of positive comments from the other teams about how well our girls played and we were awarded a voucher for £25 for our club Thanks to Sam Jenkins who umpired all our matches. Well played girls.
