On Tuesday 30th April, the Boys’ Hockey team played their Décor Trophy semi-final cup match against Armstrong Primary School.
In the first half of the game we played really well. Due to sustained pressure and good build-up play Harry produced a shot which resulted in a goal in the bottom left-hand corner. The steady performance of the defence and with the continued support of Charlie in goals, the team was able to keep a clean sheet in the first half. The score at half-time was one nil to KPS.
The second half got off to a fast-paced start with Armstrong pressing forward seeking an equalising goal. However, good team work and accurate passing by KPS created some pressure. A great run from defence resulted in a decisive midfield pass to Harry. He managed to beat the goalkeeper and score a second goal. This was the last play of the game, meaning we won 2-0.
The team was; Charlie Stone, Peter McClughan, Jack Cowan, Oliver Bingham, Harry Kerr, Daniel McClughan, Aaron Kinkead and Austen Gault
