On Friday 3rd May we took our U11 Hockey team to compete in a level 2 competition at Smallbrook.. There were 10 schools participating, all looking to progress to an island final which will decide which teams represent the IOW at the Hampshire Games in June.
Greenmount are already taking our U11 Handball team to compete at this event.
We were drawn in a group with Gurnard, Binstead and Bembridge and progressed from the group as runners up to play in the semi final stages.
In the semi final we were drawn against a very strong Newchurch side and although we fought hard we were beaten 4-0.
This put us into the 3rd and 4th place playoff match where we played Shalfleet. This was an even game with both sides defending well and creating chances but it was Shalfleet who took their opportunities to score and win the game 2-0.
We showed some great resilience and teamwork to compete in this event, 4th place is a very creditable achievement. Well done to all of our players.
