Hounslow Hockey Finals
On Monday 13th June, we attended the Hounslow finals Hockey Tournament. A lot of teams had dropped out but there was still some very tough competition from other schools as well as having to play against our own teams. The children got straight to work in their warm up practising their passing, turning, attacking and defending on a very compact pitch with very small goals. Hockey is incredibly difficult as the umpires had to stop the game every time the ball touched someone's foot, but our teams were very quick to reset and play on.
The first round couldn't have gone better with all 3 of our teams winning, 1 of which was by an 8 goal margin, 4 scored by Alice who was incredible up front in each game. Some great turns and teamwork was shown by all over the next few matches accompanied by some superb defending.
A couple of performances to brag about from Amelia who was composed and tactical in protecting her goal as well as organising her team. Shay and Oheneba whose quick decision making and shots helped their team persistently win. Karolina whose defending saved one of our teams on several occasions and Victor who represented our school for the first time and scored a few goals as well.
We finished in first place!! Amazing job from all.
