The Year 6 hockey team had a very successful tournament yesterday as we entered the Lancashire tournament for the first time. The top two teams progressed to the next round of this National competition and Westholme were unlucky not to qualify, finishing in third place at the end of the tournament.
Matches were played against top teams including AKS Lytham, Kirkham Grammar school, Saint Mary’s Hall and Scarisbrick Hall.
Two wins against Saint Mary’s Hall ( 3-0 ) and Scarisbrick Hall ( 4-0 ) gave us confidence in our goal scoring ability, however AKS and Kirkham penetrated some defensive weaknesses and gave us something to work on for our next fixtures.
Congratulations to the whole squad who played some lovely hockey and at times some inspired periods of play.
