On Tuesday 6th March 2018 the Year 5 and 6 children took part in the In 2 Hockey Festival at Tilsley Park, Abingdon.
We entered 2 teams into the competition this year to give all the children who have been attending hockey club the chance to play as a team.
Team A – Jessica, Kyra, Daisy, Lacey, Ethan, Bertie, Tom and Alex played in pool one. They played their first match against St Nicolas which with a score of 4-0, their second match against Charlton was another great win with a score of 3-0 and finally their last match against Caldecott was unfortunately a loss of 1-0.
Team B – Estelle, Maisie, Kara, Evie, Max, Oliver, Rohan and Charlie played in pool 2. During their matches they drew against North Hinksey and St Nicolas B, and had a loss against Grove 3-0.
Wantage A qualified on goal difference for the quarter final against Grove which after full time still had no score, we continued to play until a golden goal was scored which Grove won.
During the third place playoff against Charlton, there again was no score after full time so we played for the golden goal! Despite many attempts at goal by Wantage the score still remained 0-0. Third place was awarded to both teams.
Wantage showed great sportsmanship during the morning with all the teams, by congratulating others and cheering them on.
A big well done to both teams.
