East Devon Quick Sticks Hockey Finals

26th February 2018

On Monday 26th February our Year 5/6 Hockey team competed in the East Devon Quick Sticks Finals at The Kings School, Ottery St Mary. Despite the freezing temperatures, the children showed grit and determination during their matches. The whole team played superbly throughout the tournament. During the group round we drew our first match, lost our second match and won our third match. After coming second in our group we went through to the quarter finals. This was a closely fought match, but after some fantastic battling in midfield we were able to break free and score the only goal of the match. Unfortunately we narrowly missed out on a place in the final losing our semi-final 1-0. However, we finished third overall and with twelve schools competing in this tournament that was a fantastic achievement. Well done St Mary’s.
