Sports Review

Published Friday 11th November.

This week, read about the In2Hockey U12 tournament, 1st & 2nd hockey vs Hymers, U13 hockey, and the latest Mavericks games.

Monday 7th November

In2Hockey U12

Score: Won 2, Lost 3 - 4th place

Player of the Match: Louise B (Year I)

On Monday, Year I at Queen Margarets played against 5 different teams in a tournament. The atmosphere when Queen Margarets walked onto the pitch was lively and exciting as everyone was warming up.

The tournament started off really well with a one-nil win against Joseph Rowntree. Everyone worked hard and Polly scored a great goal for the team! The team also won the match against Queen Ethelburga's and they persevered to score 3 goals.

At the end of the tournament, they ate a very nice lunch made by the Catering Team and were exhausted but happy with the way they played. We are looking forward to playing again soon!

Tuesday 8th November

Mavericks B v Rawcliffe Ravens

Score: Lost 40-18

Player of the Match: Darcy (V) & Miss Hagan

Despite some dubious passing (ahem Miss Hagan!), the B team started the first quarter well with some good connecting play down the court, and fab shots from the shooters.

Unfortunately, Rawcliffe Ravens found their groove and scored more consistently in the following three quarters. Good to see the Bs progressing steadily this season and finding the net more often. Keep it up!

Wednesday 9th November

1st & 2nd Hockey vs Hymers

Score: 2nds Lost, 1sts 4-0 Win

Player of the Match: Daisy L (LVI) and Kitty E (UVI)

Mavericks A v Read School

Score: Won

Player of the Match: Bonnie

The A team met their long-time local rivals, Read School Ladies. This derby was heading the way of previous encounters with only a few goals separating them in the third quarter.

With the As slightly ahead, they held their nerve to find another gear to win the game comfortably. Let’s see how the reverse fixture pans out…

Thursday 10th November

U13 Hockey

Score: Lost, 6th place

Player of the Match: Sadie H (II) & Amelia B (II)

After a dissapointing result on Monday, all eyes were on the U13 tournament. The girls started strong and fought hard from the first whistle, but without many breaks between their matches, the fatigue began to set in towards the final matches causing the girls to make more mistakes and lose some accuracy in their passing.

This allowed our opposition to put more pressure on our defence but Harriet and Evie worked hard to try and keep them out. Well done to all the girls - a great learning experience for all.
