On Thursday 9th March the girls played a league match against Bocombra at home. We played really well and had a great 6-0 win. Goals came from Megan, Taylor, Chloe and Kate.
On 16th March we played another league match at home against Markethill PS. Again, the girls played some great flowing hockey, with great passing and positioning. We again came away with a 6-0 win. Goals in this match came from Taylor, Lucy, Catherine, Emily and Megan.
We narrowly missed out on the league play offs unfortunately, as we came away with 4 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss.
Next up was the NI Qualifying Tournament at Brownlow on 22nd March. We won our first 2 matches comfortably against Bocombra and Magherafelt. Next up was Armstrong. We started off really well and played some great attacking hockey, and narrowly missed the goals several times. We defended well, but unfortunately we conceded 2 goals in quick succession, and we simply ran out of time to score back. We were all very disappointed, and unfortunately didn’t then progress to the finals at Garvey. Armstrong went on to be runners up in the NI Finals, so we can be very proud of our efforts.
This team have played some great hockey, and have shown tremendous skill on many occasions this season. I would like to wish all the P7s the very best for their new schools, and make sure you continue playing hockey! Well done girls.
Team- Sophie Beattie, Lucy Latimer, Catherine Cowan, Taylor McKinley. Emily Alexander, Megan Hampton, Chloe Gordon and Kate Holmes
