After an eventful journey to Stamford we kicked of the festival with a match against Bedford. Both teams had attacking chances and there were penalty corners at both ends. Bedford eventually came out on top 2-0. The second game was against Wisbech who had a couple of fast forwards who created some chances but were defended well by Louis, Toby and Harry M in goal. George managed to score late on to secure a 1-0 victory. Against Copthill we had most of the possession and Charlie H smashed an excellent shot against the post. Copthill had two chances which their striker hit high into the goal giving them a 2-0 win. The final game was against Stamford, who were by far the strongest team and they capitalised on any loose pass. The game ended 4-0. A very encouraging afternoon’s hockey.
Wednesday took us to Stamford for a hockey tournament involving Bedford, Wisbech, Copthill and Stamford. The boys all played in different positions throughout the game showing their versatility in every game of the tournament which was great for the boys and really tested their hockey skills. A special mention goes to Eddie E for his solid defence and to Jamie S and Morgan D for keeping control of the middle of the pitch and clearing any dangerous attacks coming their way.
