Year 5/6 Preston Hockey Competition - Year 5/6 - Broughton High - 16th October|
A and B Team Walk Away as Dual Champions!!
Year 5/6 Annual Hockey Competition for Preston Schools - 16th October 2018
Tuesday 16th October was the day for the annual Year 5/6 Hockey Competition for Preston Schools. We had an A team competing against 36 other schools and a B team in a mini round robin competition against 3 other B teams. The A team were: Annabel Cutting, Elise Rawson, Bayla-Rose Smart, Ethan Chadwick, Oliver Heath, Jed Anderson and Lewis Simpson. The B team were: Katie Taylor, Elspeth Scobie, Alex Latham, Charlie Bray, William Ward, George Heath, Oliver Swindlehurst and William Hall. All of the children were fired up and prepared to demonstrate their amazing skills and abilities. Every single boy and girl was amazing! They were so well behaved, setting a great example for Broughton and they were so clean and precise with all of skills and tactics they displayed. As the headline suggests, both teams were on fire and cleaned up in both competitions. Both teams only conceded 1 goal respectively all afternoon and they played 10-15 games each in the end. A fantastic display of strength, character and teamwork all round. Also, another 100 points towards the Championship Sport Table for Preston. Well done teams!
Mr. Bird’s Comments: “I was proud of both teams. Every single one of them produced amazing skills and tactics to help bring home the glory. Also, more importantly on this day, their behaviour/discipline was exceptional, this made me so proud! Well done team! You should be so proud of yourselves. A final special mention to Charlie Bray in the B team who scored well over 10 goals and our 'Super Striker' Annabel Cutting in the A team, who has been scoring lots of goals all season. It was fitting that she scored the winning goal in the final.”
