U11 Girls’ West Hockey Finals – Wednesday 18 March 2015
Congratulations to the U11 girls’ hockey team, who competed in the West Hockey Tournament on Wednesday 18 March. The venue was the fantastic water based astro at Millfield School, Somerset.
As usual, the standard of hockey was predictably high, with no easy matches. The girls had six matches in their pool, but they struggled to find their true form in the earlier rounds. It was a different matter in their later matches, when the girls played brilliant hockey, surprising Blundells School and Dean Close School with the quality of their play. They will remember their match with Dean Close for a long time, as this team had won their other matches in the pool comfortably and we held them to a 0-0 draw, even having several shots at goal within the allocated ten minutes for the game.
Interestingly, there was no clear favourite in either pool; all of the teams were well matched and the standard of play was excellent. In the end, it came down to how consistently the teams played, and it was this that separated their results.
