Success at ISA National Hockey Tournament
Yesterday (23 November), the U11s and U13s travelled to the Lee Valley Olympic Hockey Stadium in London, to take part in the ISA National Hockey Team Finals.
After an early 5am start, the U11 girls fought right up until the end, eventually winning The Plate Competition! All girls demonstrated a strong performance throughout their pool matches, playing against teams from all over the country. The girls convincingly won The Plate Competition by winning all four games, with goals from Lilia Mico, Grace Earp and Charlotte Brookes. Amber Forsyth was awarded Player of the Tournament for her adaptability and strength on the pitch. Congratulations to everyone who took part - what an achievement!
The U13s played very well throughout the day. After very close pool matches they qualified for the plate competition. They won all their matches to qualify for the plate final, which had to be decided by penalty shuffles! The girls unfortunately lost 2-0 on penalties. They demonstrated fantastic teamwork and positivity throughout the day and played with dedication. Erica Borwell-Fox was awarded player of the tournament. Due to another team member's injury she had to play a new position. She took to this very positively and played with great determination.
The girls performed extremely well and it certainly was a great day for all!
