U10 Plate Win at UKSA Hockey Tournament

U10 Plate Win at UKSA Hockey Tournament

On Monday, the U11 participated in their first ever county tournament held at Notre Dame School.  The aim of the day was to gain experience of tournament play and learn from our stronger opposition.  Specifically, the team worked on how to attack and defend penalty corners and should be proud of their efforts in what was a very competitive tournament. 

On Wednesday, the U10 team travelled to Burgess Hill for the UKSA tournament, which included teams from across Surrey, Sussex and Kent.  The team got off to a good start with a win over St Teresa’s followed by scoreless draws against Reigate St Mary’s and Bedes.  Next up, the team fought hard against a strong Kent College side and were unlucky to concede a goal-the only one of the day- equally, Caterham had two goal scoring chances that just weren’t to be!  In the final group match against Skippers, Caterham were back on goal scoring terms winning 2-0, and advanced to the Plate semi-final against Burgess Hill.  Pumped up, the team got off to a flying start and dominated the game, winning 3-0 and advanced into the final against Hazelwood.  The team kept their excitement under wraps and played with great determination and positivity.  A well worked team goal was soon followed up by a second off a long corner, which sealed the 2-0 win.  A fantastic day all round and a great team effort: Katie, Eugenia, Naomi, Marble, Johanna, Ella, Ruby, Kiara and Martha.

House sport is always a hotly contested event and the week wrapped up with the Year 5/6 competition. This year’s winners were Pilgrims-Year 3, Foxburrow-Year 4 and Pilgrims- Year 5/6.  

Our attention now turns to netball, with fixtures starting in the next couple of weeks.
