Saturday 24th March 2018
Today was the under 15s county tournament at AGGS. 4 teams entered and there was some fantastic hockey played by all teams. AGGS were determined to play well today. Their enthusiasm and positive attitudes were rewarded with a clean sweep winning each of their games and being crowned county champions. I am so proud of their hard work and effort this season, and today was the icing on the cake.
Game 1 vs Stockport was a well fought match and a good opener to the morning with a 5-0 win. Goals came from Nadia, Freya, Emma and Annie.
Game 2 vs Cheadle Hulme was the game they were most looking forward to as they hadn’t yet managed to beat Cheadle in the four years these two teams have been playing against each other. Annie winning a penalty flick in the first 5 minutes meant AGGS secured the lead and some frantic defending against a strong Cheadle side in the last few minutes of the game saw their hopes come true with a 3-1 win. Their best ever results against this strong hockey school.
Their final game vs Withington also finished with a 3-0 victory seeing AGGS as the winners of the day.
Cheadle Hulme came second with a greater goal difference than Stockport, and Withington finished in 4th.
The AGGS team was Captain Emma S, Vice Captain, Rosie, GKs Shona and Charlotte, players Pheobe, Maddie, Annie, Lucy, Aude, Mary, Freya, Nadia, Anna.
