Hockey Season starts with a Bang!

The U11A’s travelled to Worksop last week for a Hockey Festival and started the season in style.

The first match saw the team begin to find their feet against a disciplined Burton Hathow side. Secind up was Ranby and St Hugh’s worked hard but conceded a goal to the opposition in the final minute. The girls really switched on following this, upping their communication and teamwork skills enabling the ball to be carried towards goal much more efficiently. Brilliant work from the wing-backs (Beth and Penny) created multiple goal scoring opportunities. Excellent tracking back and defensive skills by Peyia helped St Hugh’s to keep possession. Helena and Lucy increased their movement up and down the pitch and Ruby’s work rate off the ball created spaces for her team to send the ball into. Annabel did a great job in goal, stopping multiple shots on goal throughout the final two games.

The afternoon was a roaring success, with St Hugh’s winning the tournament overall. Fantastic start to the season girls! Congratulations to Peyia for being this week’s star U11 A player.
