Girls’ Hockey Season News Round-up

Tuesday 7 January 2020

Our girls’ hockey teams enjoyed a busy and successful season last term, with just over 70 fixtures across all year groups and some cracking House matches.

The U14s had lots of success in their first season at Shrewsbury, winning or drawing all their matches bar one, with the highlight being reaching the County Tournament Final and representing Shropshire at the Midlands Finals.

The U15s have a similar record, with only one loss all season and winning all their other matches.

We have had three senior teams this year, who have also had positive seasons. The 3rd XI had good wins against King’s Worcester and Moreton Hall and the 2nd XI have had their most successful season to date, including wins against Ellesmere College and Wrekin College.

The 1st XI struggled to find their best form this season, having lost a core group of Upper Sixth players last year, but they performed well in the County Tournament and played very well to beat Oswestry School.

At the End of Michaelmas Term School Assembly, School Firsts were awarded to:
Laura Elliott
Lara Ockleston
Ella Nibblett

House Hockey Finals

The U15 House Hockey Final, played on the last day of the Michaelmas Term, was Mary Sidney Hall against Moser's Hall. It was a very tight final, with both teams having a number of chances but struggling to get the goal. It finished in a draw, then penalties, and then went on to sudden death penalties after the initial five, with Mary Sidney Hall finally getting the winning goal.

The 2nd House Final was The Grove v Moser's. Both teams were in good spirits with great support on the sidelines. It was The Grove who had the edge in the first half and broke through the Moser's defence in the first ten minutes. Their good game play and strong attacking play continued into the second half and Grove were victorious.

The 1st House Final was between Mary Sidney Hall and Emma Darwin Hall. It was a little slow to get going, but MSH got into a rhythm and started to play some good hockey. The attackers had some excellent strikes at goal, with EDH keeper doing an excellent job, but they were eventually too strong and so MSH were the winners of 1st House Hockey 2019.
