Our U16 hockey team travelled to Thetford Grammar School yesterday afternoon. We started off slowly and conceded a goal within the first two minutes of the game but we fought back and Kelly equalised to take it to 1-1 at half time. In the second half, we were much more dominant and played some of the best hockey of the season. With one minute left we won a short corner and the whole team came forward. After a goal-mouth scramble the goal stopped on the line and captain Ella was there to slot the ball home. A 2-1 win to Hethersett!
The whole team played extremely well and Miss Mickleburgh awarded three players of the match: Alice ‘the engine’, for demonstrating a superb performance in centre midfield, Gabriella for making some vital tackles and Ria for her tireless efforts up front.
SQUAD: Emily, Ella, Hannah, Gabriella, Isabel, Alice, Mia, Amy, Sofia, Francesca, Ria and Kelly.
Next week we play Norwich School hoping to continue our run of good form.
