Hockey Tournament MRC

Hockey Tournament at MRC

Last Friday, we entered two teams into a hockey tournament held at MRC. Our teams played absolutely superbly! Both finished second in their respective groups; team 2 were undefeated in all 7 of their group games and team 1 won 6 matches in a row! What was most impressive was the improvement shown as the tournament progressed. Eve scored a wonderful hat trick against Harting and goals from Freya, Seb and Harry S rounded off a great overall performance. In defence, Harry AS and Luca were outstanding, frustrating the attack of our opposition. 

Team 2's unbeaten run was stopped in the play off games by Petworth team 1, who they drew after finishing in equal positions in their groups. Unfortunately, this meant we weren't able to compete for first or second position (despite beating the team that won overall). 

Our two teams finished 3rd and 4th out of over a dozen teams from local schools. The points from this competition will carry forward to a league that is running all year with a variety of sports. We are very proud of all the children who competed and they had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon/evening.
