On Wednesday 20th Jan the hockey team travelled to The Magnus School for the next round of the hockey league.
Although 2 of our usual players were 'borrowed' to play football, we still had a great night. Our 1st match was against a strong Highfields team who beat us last time we met. This time due to sheer determination from all our players and some excellent passing of the ball we managed to keep the scoresheet to 0-0.
This gave the team a boost going into their 2nd game against The Mount. The defence had an excellent game not letting anything through which allowed the attack to push up and cause havoc! A deserved 3-0 win to Barnby Road.
Game 3 was against Lowes Wong who started very strong and very quick catching Barnby a little unawares with some excellent manoeuvring skills. We soon pulled ourselves together and after a very hard fought game, Barnby managed to score with only a few minutes left on the clock. Lowes Wong came back hard and after an amazing save off the line by our goalkeeper we finally won the game 1-0, much to the delight of the team and Mrs Marfleet.
Well done to all he players who took part, some excellent skill on show!
