U11 Boys and Girls get Hockey-tastic

On Friday 1st March a team of girls from Years 5 and 6 alongside a team of boys headed off to Nairobi to take part in a Hockey tournament.

The girls got off to a good start and played very well throughout the tournament. The team didn’t concede any goals and also did not lose any matches! This was the first competitive game of hockey the girls have played all term and they managed to hold off teams that have been playing matches throughout the season – well done team! The highlight of the tournament was when Anika scored a superb goal from the top of the D against Premier Academy. The team unfortunately missed the semi-final by 1 point but still made us proud. Good work girls!!

The boys unfortunately lost their first game against Braeburn Gitanga by a solitary goal that was scored during injury time. Their second game ended in a draw against the hosts - Nairobi Academy. They won their third game against Brookhouse but played to a goalless draw against Gems and St Christopher’s School. The team ended in 3rd position in our pool.  WE were particularly delighted that two of the boys received double nominations for best players in the tournament. Well done the boys!!!!
