1st Lacrosse team seals off season beautifully!

Friday 22nd March 2013

Commitment was high throughout the season as girls put in the extra effort in fitness, stick work, and indoor sessions as well as the required team practices. The entire squad steadily worked its way through a roster of 14 fixtures and grudgingly conceded three to weather in the final weeks of the season. The highlights of the season were an exciting Final 16 finish at the National Tournament and a very gratifying 10-3 win over St Paul’s Girls’ School.

The team as a whole marvelled at the rock like foundation of our success – the defence. Goalie, Tabitha Jones had an average save percentage of well over 50 which is astounding given the fact that she often has less than a second to react. Tabitha’s tactical maturity and steady calm saved the game in subtle yet dominant ways. Very few opponents even made it down to her. Most were surgically tackled or flat-out turned away by Ciara Hazley and Laura Bevan. Fit, forceful and not just a bit fabulous, Ciara and Laura accounted for an astounding 64% of re-possessions of the ball during play.  Further forward, the constant pressure applied by Charlotte Gibbon was exemplary and left onlookers marvelling at her effectiveness.  The saying goes that attackers win games but defenders win championships and Charlotte is the proof. Sofia Cormack contributed essential pressure as a play-anywhere, do-anything defender and snuck across the restraining line to slot away goals further unsettling visiting teams.

The home team worked beautifully to perfect their centre draw control and truly lived up to the maxim “win the draw, rule the world”.  The undeniable reliability to Alex Crowther’s draw into Katie Belcher’s or Harriet Foster’s sticks was an unstoppable force which accounted for just over a third of the team’s season goals. This cross-year triumvirate was matched in attacking ferocity by the twin hunters Emma Gregory and Jessica Miller who put away 19 goals. This dynamic duo caused no end of fear in their opponents with their creativity and determination. It is a testament to the depth of ability in the team that there were so many contributors to the scoring total with Lucy Eggar and Tiffany Ralston tied for season goals and SJ Laing’s characteristic lightning-quick drive totalling 13 goals between them.   Our sharp starts ensured 17 wins and a staggering 139 goals scored against some of the toughest opposition in the Nation.

Ms Consiglio gives all the departing Upper Sixth players a heartfelt thanks for their time and effort this season. You’ve been zany, hardworking, committed and a pleasure.  Congratulations.

Ms Consiglio, Head of Lacrosse
