Match report: U14 rounders v Thetford Grammar School

Yesterday our newly-formed U14 rounders team played their first game of the season in a very close match against Thetford Grammar School . There was just half a rounder in it at the end, with a final score of twelve rounders to Thetford and eleven and a half to us. What a closely fought match – it literally came down to the last ball of the game!  Player of the Match was awarded to Mia D, for her great hitting throughout!

Match report: U12 and U14 hockey v Wymondham College

Both the U12 and U14 hockey teams were in action against Wymondham college yesterday.  We came away with one victory from the U12s, following a goal from Annie Harris, and a loss from the U14 team. It is worth noting, though, that our U14 were up against the A team from Wymondham.

Players of the match were Rosamaria E for helping to keep the goal tally down with some superb saves as goal keeper,and Rachel Y for her role in defence.

Great efforts all round, well done.

Match report: U16 hockey v Thetford Grammar School

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.
