U13A First Hockey Tournament of the Year

16th September 2019

On Saturday, the Girls’ U13A Hockey Team travelled to Prior’s Field for their first tournament of the year. In hot conditions and with an early start, the girls faced a difficult 6 games in a 7-team Round-Robin Competition.

In the very first game of the tournament, the girls played brilliantly and beat Feltonfleet 2-0. After a short break, the girls then repeated the score-line against Tormead.

In their toughest challenge of the day, the girls faced a strong Surbiton High team before immediately facing the hosts, Prior’s Field in a double header. The girls raised their game against Surbiton and some quality hockey from both sides ended in a 1-1 draw. With less than 60 seconds to turn around and face the hosts, the girls carried their momentum into the match to score 4 unanswered goals.

In their penultimate game of the day, a 4-0 win against Notre Dame set up a final match against a well organised Westbourne side. The girls applied pressure throughout the whole match but were unable to find a breakthrough. With the final whistle going, Danes Hill had earned an overtime penalty corner and a brilliant strike sealed the 1-0 victory and the tournament win.

Congratulations to all of the girls involved on a brilliant performance throughout the day!
