Last week the Year 7 Hockey team played in the County round of the In2 Hockey tournament. The team played 7 matches against the best teams from Staffordshire, Warwickshire, Leicestershire, Worcestershire and Northamptonshire.
Our team got off to a great start beating Moreton Hall 2 – 0. They then drew 1 – 1 with Oakham School, 0 – 0 with Newcastle-Under-Lyme and beat Northampton 1 – 0. They lost 1 – 0 to RGS Worcester, the eventual winners of the tournament. The final group match was against Kings High and we drew 1 – 1.
Our results meant that we were joint third in the group, however on goal difference we were place 4th. We played against Shrewsbury to establish 4th place winners and won 2 – 0. This meant our Year 7 team finished 4th out of 13 teams, an amazing result!
Well done to Amelia, Sharondip, Ellie, Nina, Sophie, Charlotte, Joanna, Grace and Francesca who all played brilliantly. The standard of play was exceptional and our Year 7 team more than held their own against the best schools in the Midlands.
