Hockey News

 

The girls’ hockey team have had a busy week with hockey tournaments and league matches.

 

The girls won their league and are now through to the ‘Super League’, which they won last year.

 

We had the Mid-Ulster tournament and topped our group. The girls played Seagoe in the semi-finals. It was a tough match but Seagoe dominated the game and justly went through to win the overall trophy.

 

Our next tournament was at Lurgan College for ‘Aspire Hockey.’ The girls played five teams and ended up winning the tournament.

 

We were so proud when one of our girls won a trophy for ‘Player of the tournament’. A huge congratulations to her.

 

We look forward to further tournaments during the season.
