 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.

Spring Term 1915

LACROSSE – February 20th – Sarum beat Nelson by 4 goals to 3.

Sarum’s defence was very good, especially H. Williams. Nelson did not combine very well; the intention was there, but the capacity seemed to be lacking. The teams were well matched, but Sarum played a better game.

St. Margaret’s beat School House by 9 goals to 4. At full strength St. Margaret’s is the better team, but School House in this match were considerably weakened by substitutes. A. Foljambe was particularly good.

February 27th – Sarum beat New Forest by 7 goals to 2. New Forest played most pluckily with many substitutes. O. Batchelor was good in defence and M. Godley in attack. D. Wilson is a great support in Sarum’s defence.

St. Margaret’s beat Fawcett by 5 goals to 2. This was a good game. Fawcett played well together and continually pressed, but failed in shooting. St. Margaret’s combination was weakened by substitutes. H. Elworthy was good for St. Margaret’s, and Fawcett’s attack and defence wings were good.

March 6th – St. Margaret’s, beat Sarum in the Finals by 7 goals to 2. It was a hard-fought game, but the better team won. Sarum was weak in attack, chiefly owing to substitutes. G. Rigden was the best. St. Margaret’s played well together, but their strength is in their attack. The defences depend too much on crowding.

On the whole the matches were good, and the Houses at full strength would have been fairly even.
