Queen Anne’s Sporting News

Tuesday 28th June 2016

Keep up to date with all the Queen Anne’s sports news from last week:

Week commencing Monday 13 June

Last week, the U15A team of Annabelle Roberts, Abby Sloman, Millie Bowater and Lucy Evans played their County Semi-Final Aegon match against Downe House. It was always going to be a tough match with Downe House boasting several players with impressive rankings. All the singles matches were incredibly close, all finishing 6-4, with Lucy Evans the only Queen Anne’s girl who managed to clinch victory. In the doubles matches, Abby Sloman and Lucy Evans managed to edge out their opponents with Millie and Annabelle just missing out. Final score 4-2 to Downe House.

On Saturday 18 June, four of our tennis teams headed to Bradfield. Our U15A and U14B teams put in a strong performance to win 7-2 and 8-1 respectively. The U14C match was very close with Queen Anne’s grabbing the victory 5-4. In the U14A match it came down to the final set. With the match tied 4-4 overall and only top pair Millie Bowater and Lucy Evans left playing at 5-5 a final game was to decide the match. Despite some fantastic rallies the girls just fell short, a 5-4 loss.

The results from the matches are as follows:

  • U15A team won 7-2
  • U14A team lost 4-5
  • U14B team won 8-1
  • U14C team won 5-4

On Sunday 19 June, sixteen L4 girls and many supportive parents came out in full force to the Cobham Lacrosse Tournament which was an unknown entity to Queen Anne’s. The weather was kind and the sun shone throughout. Our first game was against the hosts Cobham and we started well with Olive Richards winning the centre and going straight to goal. 1-0 to Queen Anne’s! Goals then followed from Zoe Obamakinwa, Lexie Davies and Georgie Lewis. Queen Anne’s were dominant throughout and won 4-2.

Our second games were against Reigate and the girls really showed of what they can do in a 7-0 convincing win. Our third match against Cougars was much closer with Charlotte Goforth making some key tackles in defence. Final score 1-1. We then played New Stars who were unbeaten, so far, and it was a nail-bittingly close match where Queen Anne’s maintained the majority of possession and held them for long periods in the defensive end. Unfortunately New Stars snuck a goal in towards the end to win 1-0.

In our final match we played Coyotes with the girls’ confidence high. Charlotte Lange combined well with Lauren Richmond to score a fantastic well-worked goal. Final score 3-0. We finished second out of 6 teams qualifying for the final. Once again, Queen Anne’s gave it their all gaining the majority of possession and Freya Marshall leading the defence and some great saves from Amy Ivey in goal. The girls finished Runners-Up, a fantastic day had by all and some shiny new medals to take home.
