Thursday 22nd October – Under 16 Girls County Tournament
With this tournament being in half term we were missing a key few players due to holidays but a couple of U15’s stood up and filled their positions. Truro School were drawn to play at Truro High School, along with Newquay Tretherras who they played first and beat 1-0. With a short rest we then played Penrice, not knowing what to expect the girls played there hockey and managed to put 5 goals past them. Followed by Mounts Bay where we were starting to tire but it didn’t stop the girls moving the ball around, strong and powerful, waiting for the chances to appear and when they did they hit them hard, scoring 3 goals. With our final game of the group stages we played Truro High School who we knew were going to be strong, a riveraly game, we had to maintain the focus and determination in order to come out on top and win the game which we did 1-0. With the finals being played at Penair, we had a short journey across there where we had been drawn to play Bude in the Semi-final. Knowing Bude are a strong and physical team the girls had to pull their socks up and show them what for. Unfortunately the game didn’t go our way and we were knocked out, 2-1 to Bude. The girls played brilliant throughout the day and definitely deserved to get to the final but it wasn’t our day. Well Done girls, great effort!
