On Saturday the Under 11A hockey team competed in the Royal Russell tournament. Our opening group match was against Whitgift , which we conceded, followed by a match against Hurstpierpoint who we beat 1-0. Our last group match was against the hosts and despite being camped in and around their goal area we failed to score and so finished the group with one win, a draw and a loss. This meant we ended up in the plate competition.
Our opponent here were Parkside, which produced a 3-0 victory for us, putting us into the final against Hurstpierpoint. Unfortunately we failed to score and so it went to penalty shuffles and ultimately a win from Hurstpierpoint. Well done to all who played and many thanks to the parents and grandparents who came a supported us.
