State Schools U14 Girls Hockey

A huge well done to the Year 7, 8 and 9 girls who took part in this North West event on Thursday. We played teams with varying levels of experience and whilst the order of play was rather unkind to us, (3 matches then 2 matches back to back) the girls were fantastic until the final whistle. We lost a couple of games by only one goal in the last few minutes easily through tiredness but continued to fight hard. Some super runs down the left wing from Isla Dugdale-Reed and great shot stops from Grace Edge but the player of the tournament went to Lily Boucher for her speed getting back to defend and making critical tackles in the D. We came 4th overall which is a superb result. There was also a raffle drawn on the day to receive a signed England hockey shirt which we were thrilled to receive!
