At the recent Hockey tournament there were hardly any disappointments. Did the hockey team do very well? Yes we did. We played in the plate cup game and came 4th out of 24 schools.
How did everyone do?
Miss Frampton was extremely proud of us. We drew 2 games, lost 1 game and won the rest. Kieran was our star player by shooting eight goals and Niamh and Fin frost scored 1 each. Over all, all of us did very well as a team.
What challenges did you overcome?
Unfortunately at first there were only a few players so we needed to draft some more players to play. One of our players was left handed so they had to learn how to play right handed because left handed sticks are banned because they are too dangerous to go in and tackle. Many of the team only had 2 days to train also whereas the other school trained a lot.
How are we going to improve for next year?
We will continue to practise at lunch time for next year’s hockey mini youth games we will try to come first next year.
How did everyone else do?
Our relatives Cuxton came first place. We are proud of them. Cuxton trained every lunch time but we only trained on Tuesdays after school for one hour.
