Hockey Tournament Years 3 & 4
On a particularly frosty morning at the end of the Spring term, a mixed team from years 4 and 5 headed to Beckingham to represent Midfield at a hockey tournament against other schools from the borough. With Mrs Donnelly and Mrs Martins, they travelled by minibus to take on some serious competition at Langley Park School for Boys.
Midfield were in a pool with 4 other schools and played four 8-minute, 1-way games. Joe Morris, team captain, proved to be an exceptional leader and inspired the team to keep going even when they were up against some far more experienced teams. Overall, Midfield Team drew 1 and lost 3. However, given that most of our players hadn’t played hockey before we were incredibly impressed by their sportsmanship and grit and everyone learned a great deal about the sport in the meantime!
Team: Joe Morris, Dilara Massaro, Natalie Cable, Charlie Barton, Ryan Barratt, Francesco Barrasso, Matilda Simmons, Hanna Kochajkiewicz, Justin Chen
