U16 County Hockey – Champions

Congratulations to the U16 Hockey team who competed in the county hockey tournament last Saturday.  They played and beat Loreto and Woodhey, then came to the final match v Withington.  This was a very evenly matched game with both sides having chances, Withington coming closest scoring from a penalty corner but the goal was disallowed for an infringement.  The two teams could not be separated and the game finished a draw.  And because they had both beaten the other two teams they could not be separated on points either so the trophy is shared.  All the matches were very close, with some excellent defending from all teams and all GKs showing a lot of ability.  Well done girls, an excellent way to finish the season and five years of playing together – as County Champions!!
