I was glad that this fixture went ahead as rain looked like it might stop play earlier in the day.
Four teams travelled to Kings to play the annual derby against Fairlands.
Year seven A and B teams .
Year seven girls have been very enthusiastic about hockey this term and we were able to play two strong teams . The B team got off to a great start and adjusted well to the new surface. There was some excellent play from the midfield and Lulu was voted player of the team by the opposition . Kyla managed to score two goals - one in the first half and one in the second. Fairlands also scored but the goal score was 2-1 to Hugh Sexey
This team showed great support for each other in this match . No score in the first half but very soon in the second half Gracie Sneaked an early goal for Hugh Sexey
There was a second goal for us soon after making the final score 2-0 to Hugh Sexey
Player of the match was Poppy .
Ks 3 Boys
I was very impressed with the standard of play in this game. The boys showed their stick skills with skilful reverse stick passes and the occasional flick.
The captain , Michael was voted player of the match and the final score was 2-0 to Hugh Sexey . Special mention to the only year seven player Henry who went from this match to hockey trials in Bristol.
Year eight team
The year eight girls have been very reliable and dedicated to hockey . Special mention to Sayba and Iris who have not missed a practice in three years . Iris scored on the first half and then Fairlands equalised . The opposition scored a winning goal in the second half .
Final score was 2-1 to Fairlands. Player of the match was Trinity , Sophia and Sayba .
Thank you to all our families for the great support .
