U13 Hockey Team Narrowly Lose Out on Qualification

u13 hockey

The U13 girls’ hockey squad played really well in this week’s In2Hockey county finals held at Blundell’s, just falling short of qualifying for the regional rounds after losing to the hosts in the semi-finals.

The team finished second in their group, on goal difference.  Their first match Exeter School ended in a 0-0 draw, followed by a good 2-0 win against The Maynard. Sidmouth College were next, resulting in a 2-1 win, after which they faced the eventual group winners, Mount Kelly, which ended in a tight 1-1 draw.  They finally beat Colyton School 2-1 to progress to the semi-finals against Blundells.

Despite some excellent defending, the team went down 3-0 and were therefore denied the chance to qualify for the regional rounds.

It was an excellent performance by the team with some notable match play by a number of players
