Our U13 Hockey team travelled to Queen Ethelberger’s school in York for the North Independent Schools competition.
They got off to a great start beating Queen Ethelberger’s B team 3 – 0 with Maddy Brougham scoring all 3 goals.
They then played Hipperholme and with confidence and determination levels high they secured a 4 – 0 victory, Maddy adding 2 more goals and 1 goal each for Beth Alexander and Lucy Edwards.
A tough game against Alderley Edge ended in a draw but there was still all to play for as Alderley Edge had lost already in the tournament.
A win against Abbeygate would secure the medals and Maddy scored again early in the game to put us 1 – 0 up. Time appeared to slow down after that and a close game ensued, but the final whistle signified a well-deserved and well fought victory for The Grange.
