Blue Panthers Prevail in Seniors' Hockey Tournament
Our inaugural Seniors’ Hockey Tournament was hotly contested between Forms 5 and 6. Team names, captains and playing positions were agreed by each team and the excitement built as they practised in their teams during the warm-up.
The children enjoyed a full afternoon of hockey with matches taking place both outside on the Astro pitches, and inside in the JSB: testing the players ability to adapt to the different pitch surfaces.
The matches continued all afternoon with one point allocated for a loss, two points for a draw and three points for a win. 3rd place was secured on goal difference by the Sneaky Smashers (Form 6), in 2nd place were the Hockey Heroes (Form 5) and claiming 1st place victory were the Blue Panthers (Form 6).
Bonus plus points were awarded to those players who showed fantastic sportsmanship, perseverance, and excellent skills throughout the tournament. Congratulations to Hiral V, Grace H, Christos H, Max H, Olivia-Grace W, Diyan S and George H for their individual stand-out performances and to all the teams who participated!
A very close tournament with some wonderful play from many children, resulting in four very proud hockey teachers!
