Battling Performances at AJIS Hockey Tournament

The Prep 6 Hockey team competed in the AJIS hockey tournament at UCLAN, Preston, in early March.

The first match was against a strong team from King's Chester, which we lost 2-0. The girls played much better in the second game, winning 1-0, but the score could have been higher - Aisling Stott scoring an excellent goal. In our final group game we faced Rossall. The game was evenly matched, ending in a 0-0 draw. Although Rossall had more goal-scoring opportunities, excellent defending by Zoe Hildred and some fantastic saves from Eve Ransom ensured that The Grange team held on.

That meant the Grange team finished second in their group and progressed to face one of the favourites, Queen's Chester, in the knockout stages. Despite defending magnificently, with a stand out performance from Zoe Hildred, The Grange eventually lost 2-0. Overall, an excellent result that the girls should be very proud of.
