The netball tournament at Bryanston, held annually each Spring term, has become a regular event in our calendar but this was the first time ever that we had attended their hockey tournament held on Wednesday 4 November.
As expected, the organisation of the tournament was superb, with 18 schools playing their first round of five matches on four different pitches. The standard of hockey was very high – with a bonus score of a point for any teams who scored three goals in a match – so the pressure was definitely on. Our group matches with Sandroyd, Dumpton, Castle Court, Walhampton and Ballard Schools were all competitive games. Even though we didn’t win these group matches, the girls worked hard and scored goals.
In the afternoon, we had two further matches, with Knighton House and Hanford. The team were delighted to draw one match and win their other, which meant that they finished as group winners in the afternoon.
Team: Evelyn, Eloise, Melissa, Lexie, Lucy, Madi,, Charlotte, Joanna, Amy.
