Under 18 Boys County Tournament

Truro School: 4
Truro College: 5

It was great to see the Under 18 boys’ play so well, considering the tournament was out of their training schedule. It was a game of two halves. The first half Truro School dominated with goals from T.Hatcher, C.Browne & A.Hussmann (2). The boys held their positions and man-marked really well, a special mention to B.Holdsworth. Going in to the second half we were 4-1 up. Truro College started well in the second half, we lost three players to the rugby and there were some tired legs with no subs. Truro College scored three quick goals with only 3 minutes to go the score was 4-4. We had our captain sent off and a defender in the last ten minutes leaving us very short and Truro College capitalised scoring a last minute goal. Man-of-the-match has to go to A. Hussmann whom played brilliantly in centre half distributed the ball well to his team-mates. The boys were very unlucky and played really well. Well done lads!
Under 13’s PSSP Festival
The Under 13 team were in action on Wednesday in the PSSP Festival at Penair School. Without the pivotal Laura, who was away on the French Exchange, the girls were a little nervous. Laura’s absence did provided the perfect opportunity to mix the girls up a bit and it was nice to experiment with the girls in different positions. Our first match was against Redruth. The scoring quickly got under way with a final score an 8-0 win. Next it was on to Penair School and another, this time 2-0, victory for the girls. Truro High School B, although small in stature (with some year 5’s/6’s playing), gave us some food for thought but the girls played some clever hockey to win 3-0. The toughest match of the tournament saw us play the High School A team who had a score to settle following their loss against us in the County Festival Final last year. Unfortunately our girls just were not up for it on the day and succumbed to a 0-2 loss. The final match was against Richard Lander. The girls played some of their better hockey here and won convincingly 5-0. With a total of 18 goals (9 for Rosie, 6 for Elinor and 3 for Milly) scored and only 2 conceeded the girls performed well over all…they are after a High School rematch though. – Mrs Sarah Mulready (Under 13 Girls Hockey Coach)
