The boys U13 hockey team enjoyed success at the IAPS regional tournament

The boys U13 hockey team managed to follow on from the amazing success of the girls last term by winning their regional IAPS tournament and so securing a place at the National Finals at Haileybury School in March 2022.

The boys started well with wins over St Hugh’s, Town Close, Beeston and Framlingham, but a 1-0 loss to Langley Prep meant we qualified for the quarter-finals in 2nd place from our group.

In the quarter-final against Orwell Park, the team controlled the game and won 3-0 to set up an incredibly tough semi-final against St.Faith’s.

A slow start saw us go 1 nil down but the team dug deep and equalised just before half-time. In the second half, we started strongly and went in front from a well worked penalty corner and 2 late goals saw us head to final with a 4-1 win.

In the final we came up against the host school Culford and put together a commanding performance, winning 5-0 and ensuring we head to the Nationals as the number one seed from the region.

This was a superb performance by the entire team with every player contributing significantly to the successful outcome. Well done boys!
