Day Four - 31st March

Tuesday 31st March:

One of the busier days of tour so far started with an early breakfast and a quick trip to the beach before the girls headed off for their second round of hockey matches. After a short bus journey to a nearby beach town the girls were set and ready to start against a mixed club team in the sunny weather. After a tough game with chances for both teams, and outstanding and tenacious defensive play by Florence, our girls managed to get the win with a well worked goal with fantastic work on the wing by Maya and a lovely finish by Rosie. The heat definitely made an impact on the second game, with the girls really working hard to deliver the ball upfield, some fantastic passes by Flora created opportunities for goals earning her the most improved award for her fantastic efforts but unfortunately the girls just missed out on the win.

The boys had a more relaxed start to the day, enjoying their beach time before hitting the shops in the morning to buy some souvenirs and gifts. They then arrived back for lunch before embarking on their long journey to Gibraltar for rugby fixtures. More detailed match reports will be published tomorrow.
