Under 8's had a hugely successful afternoon at Southgate
The Under 8's traveled to Southgate for an afternoon full of hockey. We fielded two strong teams, playing in an A & B mixed competition, our opponents for the afternoon were Blueherts A & B, Royston A, Southgate A and a strong St Albans A team.
A team had a tough first match against Blueherts A and conceded a couple of early goals, they worked hard as a team and the final score was a 2-1 loss. However they soon found their rhythm and settled into winning ways, by beating Blueherts 2-0, Royston 4-0, St Albans 3-0, Southgate A 2-1. There final match was a nail biting match against Hertford B, winning 3-0. Goals were scored by Henry Walker, Alex Bond, Isaac Lewis and Isla Campbell.
Hertford B team worked brilliantly as a team, with some excellent passes between Matthew Norman and Hal Head setting debutant Kitt Skillett for a array of fantastic goals. Olivia Francis and Lucy Parry worked hard in defence. They started amazingly well beating Southgate A 2-1, Blueherts A 2-1, Royston A 4-0, St Albans A 2-0. A draw against Blueherts B and a loss to Hertford A 3-0.
All the players enjoyed there afternoon of competivite matches, they demonstrated some really good hockey skill and even better sportsmanship. Well done Hertford under 8's you are all great!!
