Girls Hockey Fixture Report
Congratulations to Johanna C and Naomi O who were nominated for their excellence and teamwork at the Radnor 5’s U10 Hockey festival this week. The whole team played very well and competed admirably against strong opposition from the Kent region. Overall, the girls beat Lingfield (5-0) and Somerhill (2-1), lost 0-1 v Dulwich and 1-3 v Kent College, and drew 1-1 against Holmewood House- a super game which saw shots hitting the posts on numerous occasions!
Our U9As participated in their first 7 a side hockey tournament on Thursday and put in a fabulous afternoon’s effort. The first game against a strong Downsend team was end to end, but neither team could convert their chances in the ‘D,’ (D -0-0) Next up came St. Thereas’ and the girls started to carry the ball into space more confidently and some gutsy circle play by Anna G poked the ball across the line (W 1-0). Hawthorns followed and the Caterham team were working hard, clearing out through the midfield, it was end to end, but Hawthorns took the game with a closing minutes play (L 0-1). Another super game followed against Rowan Prep, with the girls finally getting the better of the turnovers and took the game (W 1-0). Final game of the day came against RSM who had dominated the day, the opposition scored two goals quickly and the girls were running on empty. They battled hard in defence and had two chances running through to the circle but we couldn’t quite get the stick on the ball to see it over the line (L 0-3). The team finished fourth overall and everyone should be very proud of their efforts, positioning and quick turnover readiness is the focus going forwards. Next week, hockey fixtures v Micklefield- please see SOCS for details.Back to all news
