Claret Team and White Team Hockey Competition
First up were the Claret team against Benjamin Hargreaves. The team was Ella-Marie T, Jack O, Isabelle and Luke. From the off they were determined to win with Isabelle scoring and we won 9-0. Then it was the turn of the White team - Sam, Liam, Lilli-Vee, Kimberley and Jack D who were to play Mount Pleasant. The children all played really well and never gave up but unfortunately lost 6-3.
The Clarets then played Sacred Heart and again there was no stopping them winning 6-0 - brilliant team passing and communication. The Whites then played Benjamin Hargreaves losing 5-2. Both teams then played at the same time - the Whites playing Peel Park and the Clarets against a strong Mount Pleasant, a gripping match going down to a nail biting final seconds but unfortunately they lost 2-0.
The White team had played all their matches now but the Clarets got through to the semi-final on a goal difference of 16. The semi-final was against a very strong Mount Pleasant side, we battled with injuries and pure determination but we ended up losing 2-0. We came 3rd in the overall competition out of 16 schools.
A brilliant result from all who took part. Well Done!
