Under 9 Girls’ Hockey vs Truro High

On Tuesday 30 September we headed to Truro High School with two Under 9 hockey teams. This was a memorable afternoon, as many of the girls were competing in their very first hockey match, and several girls had started playing just weeks earlier.


These were close matches for both teams. Our white team scored several goals, although they finished 2:3 down, and our blue team lost 0:2, despite having several chances to score goals.


Aimee, Amelia and Emily were the key players on the blue team. Daisy was brilliant on the white team. Both teams started to work together well, made considerable progress with their game awareness and worked hard on their performance goals of moving off the ball into space and passing ahead of the player in space. A great start!


Results: White team lost 2:3, Blue team lost 0:2.


Junior Hockey club is on Monday lunchtimes from 1.30pm-2pm for all interested Year 3 and Year 4 pupils.
