Lacrosse Triumph vs Malvern St James and Stowe

Following the success of Moreton’s first lacrosse team at The North Schools’ Tournament, the players were feeling confident about Saturday’s matches against rival schools Malvern St James and Stowe.

The Moreton team won both fixtures convincingly, beating Malvern St James 16-6 and Stowe 14-7. Following a close first half against Malvern St James, Moreton succeeded in keeping a clean sheet in the second half, with the defence working well as a unit.

The second match against Stowe proved to be a tougher test. However, with determined play from attack and mid-field, Moreton overcame a strong opponent. There were good links between defence and attack, with continual running and good awareness. The team’s sharp passing and movement enabled the set plays to work efficiently.

Overall the team’s play is becoming more fluent and consistent as the season progresses. With continual improvement in the team’s performance this will certainly boost confidence for the matches after the half term break and the build-up to the Nationals at the end of February.

All the long hours of training and coaching put in by girls and staff alike are starting to pay dividends.
