Bridlington under 11s travelled to Leeds to play four matches in the latest round of the Yorkshire Junior Hockey League.

In the first game, Brid were unlucky not to go ahead early in the game, with a shot from Jack Green saved by the Halifax keeper.

The Brid midfield of Frankie Gascoigne and Declan Potts kept working hard to feed the ball through and they were rewarded with a penalty corner. Green sent the ball in, and Gascoigne had a great shot on goal which was again saved by the keeper.

Halifax fought back and Jemison in goal made some good saves on his debut, helped by the defence of Emily Asquith and Rebekah Pratley.

Unfortunately for Brid, Halifax broke through in the last minutes of the game and scored against the run of play, making it 1-0 to them.

After that disappointment, Brid came out fighting against Harrogate. Gascoigne had a shot early on which rebounded off the keeper and Green sent it into the net.

Not long afterwards, Potts passed to Libby Marshall, who then sent a great pass into Green, who shot and scored again, making it 2-0.

Harvey Asquith was unlucky not to score in this game and Gascoigne also had a powerful shot from a penalty corner go wide.

A 0-0 draw against Leeds saw two well-matched teams play some great end-to-end hockey. Jemison in goal made some good saves and Libby Marshall was unlucky to have her goal shot saved

In the final game against Thirsk, the 0-0 scoreline did not reflect the amount of possession that the Brid team had. The team worked really well together, passing well and using the space. Shots came from Declan Potts, Frankie Gascoigne, Libby Marshall and Jack Green, but none could find the back of the net.
