It's never ideal kicking off a campaign with three consecutive losses but CYMS' head coach Pete Shea knows there's only one way to flip the script on recent results... train harder.
The girls fell 4-0 to Premier League Hockey contenders Bathurst St Pat's on Saturday as they allowed a 1-0 halftime deficit to stretch out in the latter stages of the match. Shea was understandably disappointed post-match but was sure to give credit to the opposition.
"They were the better side and they played a more structured style of hockey," he said. "We just couldn't cope with what they were doing. If we get to training and work on some things we'll be OK." Phoebe Litchfield is one of several talented players on the roster but Shea said individual brilliance was lacking on Saturday.
"Some of the girls didn't play to the best of their ability," he said. "In the first two weeks, most people played pretty well but yesterday, the ball was turned over and passes went astray... we were all disappointed at the end of the game.
