 AUTUMN TERM:

The Lacrosse Tournament began on October 30th.

There are five rounds, and 75 per cent. of the number of girls in each House must play in the matches.

Fawcett beat St. Margaret’s by 8 goals to 1. They had a considerably stronger team in the field, and pressed most of the time. H. Toms was excellent in goal for St. Margaret’s, or the score would have been higher.

Nelson beat School by 6 goals to 2.

School House combined well, and D. Collier was good, also C. Mackworth in goal.

New Forest beat Sarum by 4 goals to 3. This was a poor game, Sarum particularly were weak.

November 6th – New Forest and St. Margaret’s drew 3 goals all. Both teams played the game though there were weak spots.

Nelson beat Sarum by 10 goals to 2. Nelson attack got through easily, as Sarum defence was not strong enough to hold them.

Fawcett beat School by 5 goals to 2. This was quite a good game, and the score describes it well, as Fawcett pressed slightly more. School House attack play very well together. Fawcett always play a good team game.

November 20th – Nelson beat New Forest by 6 goals to 1.

Nelson had a stronger team in the field, and their attack was too strong for New Forest defence, which was so slow in getting rid of the ball.

St. Margaret’s v. School drew 5 goals all, though School pressed mostly. St. Margaret’s defence was good.

Fawcett beat Sarum by 5 goals to nil. They pressed much more, and played well together. Sarum’s weakness was in lack of combination, not in individual strength, as there is good material to work on. D. Hinxman was particularly good for Fawcett.

On the whole the matches have been good, and every House should be able to put a good team in the field next term. The goalkeepers are good, especially S. Yorke, H. Toms, C. Mackworth, and E. Bartrum. The others save well, but do not clear far enough away, or accurately enough.

Sarum and Nelson are weakest in combined play, but both have good individual players. Fawcett and School combine well, which is particularly successful in School House attack. Fawcett defence is very supporting. St. Margaret’s and New Forest both play the game, but weak points allow opponents to break up the combination. St. Margaret’s defence is good.
