Match report: U12 and U13 hockey v Norwich School

Both the U13 and U12 hockey teams were both in action against Norwich School yesterday. Playing on a glorious Astro at the UEA, the U13 sealed a magnificent 5-0 win with 3 goals from Mia and 2 from Harriet. They share the player of the match accolade. The U12 team lost 2-1 in the dying seconds of their match. Liberty scoring our only goal but some very close attempts, particularly in the second half. Player of the match goes to Ashlyn who made some sterling saves in defence.
