The U12 hockey team enjoyed a tournament at Denstone yesterday.
They played well as a team against some much taller and stronger girls showing how their excellent spacing and resilience sets them apart from other teams. A 0-0 draw against Denstone B-team and a 1-0 win over Denstone C-team were particular highlights along with some excellent defending from Jemima, Danielle, Abigael and Evi in goal. Harriet, Kirstie and Jessica C made some fantastic runs up and down the wing showing their increased confidence and fitness. Grace D and Jessica H were an unstoppable force in the centre, working very well together to pass the ball round our opponents. Unfortunately we weren’t strong enough to beat Terra Nova, Abbotsholme, Denstone A-team and St Anselm's, but it was a great experience for the girls and good preparation for the U11 tournament this Saturday.
