Wood on target as Great Britain Women U18 finish tournament on a high note

Great Britain Women U18 ended the four-team international tournament in Sosnowiec with a victory as they beat Spain 3-0 on Sunday.

GB narrowly lost their opening two games against Hungary and Poland, but they ended the weekend on a high with a comprehensive win.

Audrey Wood’s goal gave GB a first-period lead and there were no goals in the second session. Chloe Riley and Kiana Tait scored in the third period to seal a comfortable success.

Head coach, Cheryl Smith, said: “The girls were fantastic this afternoon and they fully deserve this win.

“It has been a great few days here in Poland and there are so many positives to take from the tournament.

“For many, it was the first time they had played at this level but they were not daunted by it.

“This is a great group of girls and it has been fantastic preparation for January’s World Championship in Dumfries.

“The coaching staff were so impressed with how they responded and worked together, so there are many reasons to be optimistic.”
