The Abbey drew 3 – 3
On Wednesday the 15 November 2017 The Abbey A team went out to play a nail-biting hockey match against Holmwood House. As the first whistle went the match kicked off. In the first seven minutes Holmwood House had scored a goal, Amora tried really hard, but it just slipped in into the corner. Then Holmwood House scored another goal. Next when the ball went into our D, Issy did an amazing hit all the all the way up to Selina who did an amazing dribble up to the other teams D then passed to Charlie who whacked it to Georgie, who was waiting patiently on the post who then hit it in the back of their net. 2-1 was the score now. After half time Ellen did an amazing tackle and passed up the wing and later in the half I intercepted Holmwood House who were heading fast towards our goal. We then scored another goal. It was now 2 all. It was nerve racking when Holmwood House had got the ball in our D. They flicked it up and Amora did an amazing save with her stomach. At the end of the match it was 3 all.
It was a very close match and we had some missed opportunities but we all played our best and learnt a lot of new things. What an exciting match!

U11 B Hockey v Holmwood House
On Wednesday we played a fantastic match against Holmwood House. Bee played really well and didn’t give up until the end. Lara and Georgia scored an amazing goal and our goal keeper Amora did a couple of brilliant saves. Milly did some great tackling and Rosie did some impressive passes. Polly did really well in defence and had some amazing hits. In the end Holmwood House won 6-1 but we played our best and at the end of the day the player that stood out for the girl of the match was Bee as I think she was so determined and on the ball.
