WGS U11 Girls Hockey Tournament

WGS U11 Girls Hockey Tournament

After two weeks of freezing and snowy conditions, the weather improved just in time for the second annual WGS U11 Girls Hockey Tournament at Old Cranleighan’s Hockey Club. The teams travelled from around the South East with some travelling from as far away as Skippers Hill in East Sussex to Gateway School in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire.

The morning consisted of a round robin group stage, with each team playing one another. The teams were perfectly matched with all the teams taking points off each other and no result being easy to predict. WGS Girls started strongly but then lost a tight game against Ewell Castle which proved to be vital to their chances of reaching the final. After two hours of hard fought competition, last year’s winner, Skippers Hill and Ewell Castle made it through to the final. Ewell Castle finished on the same points and goal difference as Weston Green, but qualified by the fact they won the group match between the two sides.

The afternoon consisted of “the finals” where each team played a one off match to decide the final positions. The WGS girls were excellent all day and a credit to the school. They finished in third place but were ultimately unlucky not to make the final. The final was an excellent game with Skippers retaining the trophy. Well played (again) Skippers!

Four out of the six schools were from the Bellevue Education group, so a big thank you to Bellevue Education for sponsoring the Bellevue Cup! Also a big thanks to Peter, Sue, Martin and Paul who umpired the day in a supportive manner plus JJ Griffen at Old Cranleighan’s for being a great host.
