Girls Hockey – A Team
The girls played in the NI Qualifying Tournament on Wednesday 21st March at Killicomaine JHS. We played our first match against Bocombra. We were a little shaky to start, and conceded a quick goal, but then we equalised shortly afterwards with a great finish from Chloe Gordon. Bocombra had some lovely passing, and scored a well-executed goal just before the final whistle. Our next match was against Hardy, we were more settled in this match and came away with a 1-0 win with a great goal from Emma Latimer. Last up was Armstrong, who had shown great skills in midfield and attack in previous matches. We struggled to keep up with their pace, and unfortunately lost 2-0. The girls played really well in this match however, and were very unlucky not to get a goal.
This meant we didn’t qualify for the Finals after Easter, however we have lots of players staying with us next year, and we look forward to building upon our skills then. We would also like to wish Martha and Hannah all the very best for starting their new schools. You have both played some great hockey for our school over the years, make sure you keep it up!
Team - Tilly Douglas, Hannah Whaley, Haydn McKinley, Martha McTernaghan, Alex Kerr, Chloe Gordon (C), Emma Latimer and Grace Cochrane
