West Buckland Prep School’s U11 hockey team have won the Devon Hockey Sevens Tournament held at Mount Kelly on Tuesday 20th February.

After a very confident 2-0 win over St Peter’s Lympstone, the boys faced stiff opposition from Exeter School, who they had previously beaten earlier in the season.  Exeter won an extremely tight match, by a single goal, which proved to be a turning point for the West Buckland team, galvanising their resolve and they did not concede a single goal from that point on.

There followed convincing wins against St Andrew’s, Cullompton, 2-1 and Mount Kelly B 5-0.  West Buckland went into their last match, against Mount Kelly B, knowing that a win would clinch the tournament. With one minute to go, they clinched the game 1-0 to take the title.
