In2 Hockey Championships

30th March 2020

On Friday 13 March, the U13 girls hockey team travelled to Woking for the regional finals of the In2 Hockey Championships. 

With games being just 13 minutes 1-way, the girls knew there would be no margin for error in any game if they were to be successful. 

In a tough pool, they started against the reigning National Champions from Wednesday; Kingston Grammar. In a brilliant game with chances at both ends, it somehow ended 0-0. We followed this up with consecutive 2-0 wins before a huge 2 hour gap before our final group game which we won 5-1. 

With the crossovers in the cup competition being organised in a different format, it was unfortunate that the draw led to the girls facing St George’s and Surbiton High drawing Kingston Grammar in the Quarter-Final stage. 

St George’s played a great 13 minutes of hockey, minimising our opportunities to go forward and won the game 2-0 and eventually won the competition. 

In what was then the last game of hockey for Danes Hill for the Year 8 pupils within the team, the girls put in a brilliant performance to comfortably beat Oratory in the playoff match. 

The girls were fantastic throughout the whole competition, conceding just 3 goals throughout the day; well done!
