On a cold, damp afternoon, Lorenden under 9 hockey team travelled to Junior Kings School to play in a tournament.
Seven schools competed in the ‘round robin’ tournament which meant we played everyone - 6 matches in total.
We started well against a strong Ashford team and the match ended in a 2:2 draw.
Next we played Junior Kings which was another great match. Unfortunately a last minute goal was disallowed which meant the end result was another draw - 1:1.
Our third match was fantastic against a good St Lawrence team. Our first win - 2:0!
Up next was a really strong Sutton Valence. We battled hard, but lost 2:1 after they scored a last minute goal.
Next up came Kent College. We were evenly matched and again were unlucky that they scored another last minute goal. End result - 1:1.
Our final match was against St Faith’s. We had so many attempts at goal but luck wasn’t with us and the end result was 0:0.
All of the girls played fantastic hockey and we just missed out on a medal, coming 4th overall.
Well done team - a great hockey season.
