Medway Schools' Hockey League

We had two teams playing in the Medway Schools' Hockey League hosted by Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club over the last three weeks. One team (Red)  was largely year 5 players building as a team for next year and the other (Black) was largely year 4 with support from our year 6 players.

Our Black team had some tough games in their group and at the finals yesterday played Bredhurst School for 9th or 10th place out of 12 schools.

A close first half finished at 1 all and in the second half The Blacks  gathered their attacking skills and finished 3-1 winners and 9th place.

The Red team finished their group in second place and booked a semi-final match against Bryony School. This they won to go into the final against a very strong Cliffe Woods School. Cliffe Woods have won all the Medway Hockey events this year and this was no exception. Despite some stoic defending from the reds and a couple of forays into the opposition half, Cliffe Woods showed why they are worthy winners. However, second place is a fantastic result and hugely promising for next year. Well done both teams and thanks to Roger for helping to manage and encourage the teams so effectively.
