Year 5 and 6 Quicksticks Hockey Festival 2015

Year 5 and 6 Quicksticks Hockey Festival 2015

On Wednesday 29th April St Katharine's entered two teams into the Quicksticks Hockey Festival at Aylesford Sports College.

Due to heavy rain during the day the matches were brought indoors at the last minute which meant the teams had to play in a very restricted space. But despite this both teams played very well.

Their results were:

Blues  
Played 4
Won 2
Lost  2
Goals for 7
Goals against 3
Stripes  
Played 5
Won 2
Drew 1
Lost 2
Goals for 6
Goals against 5

St Katharine's made it through to the semi-finals and despite taking an early lead eventually lost a hard fought game 2-1.

Both teams played well together and the children also showed strong individual skills. They should be pleased with the results they achieved especially as they were playing a style of hockey they were not used to and one which didn't allow them space to use their full range of tactics. 

Congratulations to all involved.
