U11 girls' hockey tournament success

The U11A girls' hockey team had a fantastic day at the IAPS tournament on Friday 15 October. It was held at Queens, Taunton and fifteen schools from across the south west sent teams to compete for two spots at the national finals. 

The team did well to adapt to the fast, furious and unforgiving nature of tournament hockey, putting in a solid performance in the group stage where they drew four and won one of their matches. 

They then proceeded to the cup competition in the afternoon and the drama of the knockout rounds! Our Quarter-final match saw our BGS Juniors side take on Redmaids’ High; in a tense and exciting game our girls came through with a 1-0 victory. We then faced Blundell's in the semi-final. The girls did so well to dig deep with tired legs having given so much in the previous rounds but, despite some excellent defending and strong attacking efforts, Blundell's came away with a 1-0 win (and went on to win the tournament).

The girls did brilliantly to compete at this level having missed out on several matches and tournaments before half term. We  are very proud of them all.
