Wednesday saw us travelling to Abbotsholme to play two matches on their impressive ‘Tiger Turf’ astro. The U13A girls had a close, exciting game, drawing 4 – 4; with the Abbotsholme U14 goal keeper being particularly impressive and adept at stopping their shots on target. The U12A team had faced a tough opposition earlier in the term when they played Abbotsholme’s U13 squad and were expecting another hard game, as Abbotsholme finished a place above us in last week’s Denstone hockey tournament. However, the girls demonstrated amazing fire power and super stick skills, to easily win this game 11 – 1; with Phoebe scoring 4, Katie 3, Isobel 2, Niamh 2. Well played everybody but especially Phoebe who was ‘player of the match’ for this game.
This week there is an U8 Indoor Hockey Festival on Tuesday afternoon in our sports hall; our U12A and a mixed U12/13B team will be away at Terra Nova, on Wednesday and we will be completing some swimming time trials in preparation for next week’s swimming gala against Wellow House; so all girls in Years 3 and 4 will need their costumes, hats and goggles for games on Wednesday.
