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.
