1stX1 lose out in close National Schools’ Hockey Competition

The 1stX1 played some excellent hockey but lost out in the end to Stockport Grammar School and Cheadle Hulme School in the first round of this National competition.

We won our first match 5-1 against Withington Girls’ School and then drew with Stockport Grammar School (the eventual winners) 1-1. We went into the final match knowing that we would be through to the next round if we drew or beat Cheadle Hulme School. We lost the match 3-1 but it was very close and could have gone either way.

Well played to Bethan Lowe, Emma Whalley (twin captains) and their team.
