Tuesday 1st March
This week saw the Year 5/6 Hockey team start their hockey fixtures. The team was Sonny, Mati, Rayes, Clara, Paisley and Alexandra. They had a great afternoon of hockey and played really well together as a team. The results didn't go our way this week with 2 loses, but I am really proud of the pupils as they did score 2 goals and have lots of potential. The team will continue their matches next week so watch this space.
Tuesday 8th March
Today was very wet and windy for our fixtures however this did not deter the mighty Bassett Green Hockey Team. We had 2 new additions to the team this week, Ryan and Rozi.
In our 1st game we started strong with some excellent play and passing and found ourselves 1 nil up at half time. In the second half we continued to push for another goal, and unfortunately our opponents caught us on a break and drew level. Final score 1 - 1.
Game 2 was a tough game as the opponents were very strong and passed the ball around really nicely. We found ourselves 2 nil down quite early on, and we're finding it difficult to get hold of the ball. However a good team attack saw Sonny have a few attempts at goal, but we were just unable to find the net. Final score 0 - 3.
Game 3 was when the rain really hit us and the cold weather was coming closer to us. However, we were completely focused on this game and Sonny opened the scoring with a great strike at goal. We continued to pile on the pressure and soon found yet another goal with Mati scoring the 2nd by timing his run into the circle and striking at goal. The team then made one last push for the 3rd of the match with the ball falling to Sonny to put the game to bed. Final score 3 - 0.
An excellent team performance again.
