The GBTI GCC girls hockey team are back from a successful stint in Trinidad & Tobago over the weekend where they secured double gold in the girls Under-16 and Under-21 divisions.
The GCC girls took a bit of time in their first under-16 match against the Magnolias to get accustomed to the fast surface at the Woodbrook Youth Facility, they managed to emerge with a 5-1 victory. That goal would be the only one conceded in the entire under-16 competition by All-star goalkeeper, Jessica Mittelholzer, and her fellow Guyanese teammates.
The GBTI GCC girls then followed that victory with a 5-0 win over Checkers, 6-0 over Sepos and 5-0 over Bishops.
The under-16 final would see a repeat of the very first Under-16 match contested by the GCC girls as they took on Magnolias who had finished second in the pool. GCC managed to best their earlier effort by outclassing Magnolias 6-0 to lift the under-16 trophy. Striker Abosaide Cadogan was on fire for GCC, scoring 4 of their goals, while Madison Fernandes added one field goal (FG) and Kirsten Gomes scored a penalty corner (PC).
The under-16 side was strengthened by sixteen-year-old Makeda Harding for the Under-21 competition. Once again GCC topped the pool round and this time faced Paragon in the under-21 final. This match was more challenging for the Guyanese girls as Paragon played a more physical game and were able to deny space to the GCC strikers.
After a 0-0 halftime score, striker Sarah Klautky raced up the right side of the court to unleash a shot which was blocked by the Paragon goalkeeper but top goal scorer in the under-21 competition, Abosaide Cadogan, was first onto the rebound and managed to slide her reverse shot into the net for the opener. Cadogan would return six minutes later to score her second of the match and push the game beyond Paragon.
The 2-0 victory saw the GBTI GCC girls walking away with both trophies in the girls categories. Abosaide Cadogan received the leading goal scorer award for the under-21 competition.
The tournament organisers announced a six-player all-star team at the end of the competition which comprised of four of the GBTI girls inclusive Striker and GBTI under-16 captain Sarah Klautky, striker Abosaide Cadogan, midfielder Madison Fernandes and goalkeeper Jessica Mittelholzer.
The full GBTI GCC team: Abosaide Cadogan, Haley Carpenter, Sarah Klautky, Madison Fernandes, Makeda Harding, Kirsten Gomes, Madison Singh and Jessica Mittelholzer with Coach Philip Fernandes and Manager Dominique DeGroot.
