Our Girls’ Junior Under 10 Hockey team compete at the Kirkham tournament
The Under 10 Hockey tournament took place at Kirkham Grammar School. They were up against some stiff competition from the other 9 schools represented.
They went out determined to do their best and play very well – they certainly did that. After winning 3 out of the first 4 games, the team had done enough to take them to the semi-final of the main trophy as runners-up in our section. They played Rossall who were winners of the other section.
Knowing this was going to be a very good and close game the girls played very hard to turn this into another win for and take them into the main final against the hosts, Kirkham.
Once again, they knew it would be close and that they stood a good chance of winning. The score was tied at 1-1 with only a couple of minutes remaining but Kirkham managed to get a winner in that time, meaning that the team lost 2-1. However they did win the silver medals!
Our team played superbly and improved greatly as the day went on. The team voted Elle Heathcote as Westholme’s “Player of the Tournament”. Well done Elle and to all the girls for playing so well
