Yr 5&6 Hockey Team
TEAM: Benji, Abby, Emma, Molly, Louie, Isshak and Ethan
On Thursday 17th May the Newlands Hockey Team travelled to the Sports Centre for the annual Hockey Tournament. Fielding a good side of experienced players and some who have recently started playing we keen to get the games started.
We started off against Springhill A, who were a well drilled and skilful team. We started positively and had some good play between Benji and Louie. We were then caught by some quick play and Springhill went into the half 1-0. Some changes at half time saw Springhill show their class and we were outmatched losing 5-0. Despite this we went into the next game against Bitterne B with a positive attitude. Some great play and movement saw Isshak score and win the game 1-0.
This victory fed into our final game against Hollybrook B and our concentration took a dip, we were quickly 3-0 down and battling for play. Half time and a chat really helped, the players started to move the ball and play well, although we went 4-0 down the players never gave up and we were rewarded with a goal at the end to finish the game 4-1.
Some great attitudes by all players and excellent display of Hockey!!
