Ashfold School U9 Hockey Tournament

On Tuesday 18th September the Under 9 Girls travelled to Ashfold School for their first fixture of the season. It was a tournament against 5 other schools. The girls were very excited about this.

Our first match was against Beachborough School, and with the games being only seven minutes long, they were fast and furious. We defended brilliantly, and Mikayla Martey showed excellent defending skills, stopping the ball dead and clearing out to the side. The match finished 0-0, we were very close however, to scoring in the last 30 seconds of the match.

This got us ready for the match against Manor Prep School. Again it was fast and furious, but after 5 minutes, we gained good possession and managed to score an amazing opening goal, Well Done Schechinah Fundira, the first goal of the season. We kept possession well, and in the final minutes of the game we scored again! Alexa O’Kane! 2-0 the final Score.

The third match of the game was against Chandlings. The girls passed well out on to the wings, making loads of space. We managed to score our first goal within 30 seconds. This was looking positive for us, and we were bringing in some great tackles. However, in the last 30 seconds of the match, we conceded a goal. The final score 1-1.

For our fourth match of the tournament, we managed to defend well against Swanbourne House, however, we conceded a goal within the first two minutes of the game. The final Score 1-0 to Swanbourne.

Our final game against Ashfold School was the most fast and furious match of the tournament, we were against a very skilled and well practiced team, plus we were tired after some amazing game play. We fought, but ended up losing 2-0.

Altogether, our defence was strong, and the tournament set us up well for future matches in the season.

Well Done Girls!
