KELLY College Girls Ist XI had mixed fortunes with two wins and two losses at the hockey U18s National Tournament at Ivybridge Community College earlier this month. Man of the match for the tournament for the college was Emma Stacey. Kelly College 1 Plymouth College 0 With only nine minutes each way there was an urgency to score early . A goal before half time came from Hannah Gray who was in a great position in front of goal on the penalty spot, where she received a nicely timed pass from Captain, Emma Passmore and promptly swept the ball past the keeper. Kelly College 1 Devonport High School for Girls 0 Kelly passed, marked and kept shape well. Laura Mahnkopf, plucked the ball off the opposition virtually every angle. It turned out to be a tough match against a solid side. It was not until the last minutes of the game when an attacking drive through Libby and Emma Passmore saw the ball fed through to Claire Mason, who slotted it passed the DHS keeper. Kelly College 0 Ivybridge 1 This was a gutsy and positive performance against last year?s champions. In Kelly?s third game of the afternoon, the players were tired and had to dig deep. The defense held tight with Laura, Francesca Murphy, Jenny Briant, Chelsea Maydon and Bethe Crews marking their key players out of the game. Emma Stacey was yet again key to this defense. Kelly managed equal possession and it was only in the last few minutes that the host team scorel. Kelly College 0 Wellington 2 The girls played hard and fair from the start and by half time the score was 0-0. In the second half a lack of concentration allowed Wellington to take advantage of a poorly played free hit. The Somerset school scored and Kelly upped the tempo to try and recover. Wellington scored another and despite fighting to the last Kelly could not come back. Kelly College 1st XI 8 Stover 0 KELLY produced an excellent performance. There was good play from everyone and particularly from Libby Huish and Claire Bruna. l Kelly College U15 girls had a resounding win against old rivals Plymouth College beating them 6-0 in the Plymouth League - good play from everyone and particularly from Kate Eadie Lizzie Tilley, and Georgina Killingbeck. Devon County Squad selection ?
