U12 Girls FC1
U12 Girls FC101 Dec 2019
A solid performance by our U12 FC1 girls in the third round of the Kim Lam Cup at King’s Park Sports Ground on 1st December 2019. Our FC1 girls had a solid schedule against top-tier teams in Hong Kong: Valley Fort, DBP/SKS, and HKU Sandy Bay. Our FC1 girls started with a decisive match against Valley, setting the tone early with Brigid Ward’s quick pass to Natasha Hearder smashing a try up the middle. A final run by Lucy Guest up the touch line, sealed our victory 2-1 for Club. Next, FC1 went up against the DBP/SKS combined team, in a tough match with solid defence by our forwards, lead by hooker, Saidhb Martin, and supported by our wings, Alyssa Schoonmaker and Mia Wong. DBP’s big front line pounded our forwards, who held them to 1-1 score in the first half. Ultimately the HKU line was too tough and our girls conceded the match 3-1. In our final match, our vigilant FC1 girls matched up the league top-seat, HKU. Our fly-half, Lauren Lau, led a beautiful series of passes to Natasha Hearder for a quick try. Vincy Chan our #8, also made a beautiful grab and go to score our 2nd try. Great defensive work by Lea El-Asmar and Sophia Li held back the big Sandy Bay forwards. Despite our strong defence, our FC1 girls conceded the match by 3-2. FC1 finished the day with a middling 1-2-0 record to take 4th place in the pool. Despite the rankings, overall a solid performance by our intrepid FC1 squad.
