U14 Boys B team v Ashford  Mercian Challenge League
Canterbury U14 B team travelled to Ashford HC on a glorious day hoping to maintain their excellent recent run in the Mercian Challenge League.

Canterbury were on the attack from the very start of the game and managed to get into the Ashford D a number of times. This period of pressure paid off with a nicely placed goal by Riley Holness, 1-0 to Canterbury. Ashford then played themselves into the game, catching Canterbury on the break and putting our defensive line under a lot of pressure. Canterbury continued to play very positive team hockey, linking passes across the pitch. Again their pressure paid off with another nicely taken goal, this time by Charlie Gotke, 2-0 to Canterbury.

In the second half the ball continued to travel at pace from one end to the other, with both teams creating good goal-scoring opportunities. The Canterbury defence had to work tirelessly to clear the ball from our D and Elliot Spencer Tanner in goal made numerous quality saves and clearances to keep the Ashford attack at bay.

A fast-paced game on an incredibly fast surface which could have ended up 5-5, but Canterbury worked hard for their 2-0 win – well done boys!!!!

GOAL SCORERS: Riley Holness & Charlie Gotke

PLAYER OF THE DAY: Captain Elliot Spencer Tanner – for a string of vital saves in the 2nd nhalf to maintain a clean sheet & win us the game.

U16 Girls vs BromBecks EH Cup

On a bright sunny afternoon Canterbury U16 girls travelled to Bromley for an EH cup game, Canterbury started briskly and forced some early short corners and with some fine attacking play, Flora forced her way through the BromBecks defence with a solo goal.

Yazzy was forced to leave the pitch due to a ankle injury but Canterbury kept attacking the BromBecks defence,with Rose and Tilly getting near to a goal by hitting the post. We had several good chances but could not force the ball into the net.

H/T 1-0 to Canterbury

The 2nd half started in the same fashion, with Canterbury pressing hard trying to extend our lead. While BromBecks were catching us on a fast break, with the defence all holding firm only letting them have a few chances, with the run of play and several short corners Tilly slotted home a rebound from another short corner and made it 2:0. Within a few minutes a fine effort from Rose made it 3-0. Near the end BromBecks broke away and even with the heroics of our Goalkeeper Ashleigh, they scrambled the ball in to make it 3-1.

We all performed very well and a special thank you to Lily,Chloe,Elen and Rose from the U14 for playing up and helping us. Thank you to Jack, Soak and Jo for helping on the sideline."

TEAM: Alex Ferguson, Ashleigh Menniss (GK), Channice Marks, Chloe Plumb, Elen Nichols, Flora Brett, Iona Boyd,Issie Martin,Issy Savage,Lily Beer, Rose Price, Sofia Basir, Tilly Tillings,Yazzy Carney.

U18 Girls v Surbiton EH Cup quarter finals

The girls travelled to Surbiton to face a strong opposition. The Canterbury girls fought hard from the start, and were the first to score with a goal from AImee Plumb, set up by Ailsa Naylor. Surbiton drew level shortly afterwards from a short corner, but Canterbury went ahead once again, also from a short, with a goal for Tiegan Aitken. The first half ended with Canterbury 2-1 up.

The second half saw the Canterbury girls under sustained pressure. Despite some heroic play from the Canterbury defence, Surbiton managed to equalise then pull away to the final score of 4-2. However Canterbury made Surbiton work very hard for their victory, and Robyn Thompson made a series of great saves. Thanks to everyone who travelled to Surbiton for the game - there was great Canterbury support, and thanks to Fabrizio for coaching.
