Match report: U12 hockey v Taverham High School

Sports-iconOn Wednesday 19th November the newly-formed U12 hockey team played their first game against Taverham High School. The team consisted of five Year 7s plus Harriett and Mia from Year 6, who have shown excellent potential in their games sessions and at hockey club.

We started slowly but quickly found our feet and developed throughout the game to play some lovely passing hockey, whilst conceding very few fouls. In the end we ran out deserved 5-1 WINNERS, with Harriett scoring 2 and Rebekah  3.

SQUAD: Sophie (C), Isabelle, Harriett, Mia, Sarah, Isabel and Rebekah.
Player of the match was awarded jointly to Harriett and captain Sophie.

Well played girls!

Match report: U14 county hockey tournament

On Friday 10th October our newly formed U14 hockey team travelled to Taverham High School for the U14 county hockey tournament.

Our team faced tough opposition in the likes of Norwich School, Norwich High, Langley and Taverham, with many of the other teams having playing together for years, often at club level and in the case of a few, county level.

Despite the opposition we went into all four of our games with a positive attitude and the will to learn and improve our hockey. It was fair to say we played our best hockey against Langley school, and, on a couple of occasions, found ourselves in the attacking circle, although we failed to covert or win a short corner.

All the girls have been working incredibly hard in their games afternoons and every member of the team should be incredibly proud of their performance over the afternoon. We look forward to more hockey games after half term. 

TEAM: Grace Robinson, Ella Kassulke, Emily Catlin, Lauren Barlow-Hunter, Isabel Hartley, Mollie Deeks, Lacey Mayes, Aisling Kendall, Ria Simmons and Marian D-S.

Joint player of the tournament was awarded to Grace Robinson in goal and Mollie Deeks.

Well done girls!

Under 13 Hockey v Taverham High School

On Wednesday 21st November an Under 13 team made up from Years 6, 7 and 8 (Ella Kassulke (Captain), Mia Ellis Wood, Bronwen Laxton, Anna Allen, Sophie Walker, Abbey Ayres, Ria Simmons, Meredith Winship, Aisling Kendall and Olivia Gaskin) headed to Taverham High school to play their Under 12 and 13 hockey teams.  

With Mr Johnston in the driver’s seat we were able to navigate the roads of Taverham to turn up at the school raring to go. HOHS played very well in both the games considering the horrible weather conditions. There were some very good saves from our goalkeeper who, along with the strong defence, prevented Taverham from scoring in both the games. The forwards and midfields all worked tirelessly together to create many goal opportunities but were unfortunate not to convert from them.  There were some good skills on display and they were both very closely fought matches. 

The final score was 0-0 for both of the matches. Well done to everyone for battling on in the conditions and particularly well done to Meredith who was awarded player of the match

Thanks to the Sixth Form Sport Leaders who helped out: Livi (Manager), Sophie (Assistant Manager), Katie (Umpire) and also Mr Johnston who was our chauffeur!
