Hockey Team Success

Hockey Team Success

A huge WELL DONE to the hockey girls, who managed to reach the quarter finals of the Ulster Hockey McCloy Cup at Lisnagarvey today. Drawn in a group with 5 other teams, they managed 1 win (Maine Integrated PS 2-0), 2 draws (Sullivan Upper 0-0 and Templepatrick 1-1) and 2 losses (Methody Prep 1-0 and Downshire PS 4-0). This was good enough to secure 3rd spot in the group and qualify for the q-f stages after lunch. It was always going to be tough for an inexperienced team, with  the majority of the squad only having played competitive hockey in the Western qualifying competition. However, the team really worked hard, losing narrowly to Maralin PS, 1-0 and then to Mossley PS, 3-0. It was wonderful to see the team spirit throughout the competition but was even more pleasing to see how each player developed their game play and knowledge. With only a small number of the girls being P7 hopefully this is a sport we can continue to develop at Bready Jubilee in the next few years-let's all get out to training at school and join your local club, Priorians, if you haven't alrerady done so! Everyone played fantastically well on the day. Courtney, our fearless goalkeeper, played some brilliant 'football' throughout the day, managing to keep the ball brilliantly out of the net at times. She was ably supported in defence during the day by Susanna, Sophie D, Sophie, Beth and Anna during the matches. In midfield, Lauren, our extremely skilful captain fantastic, managed to control games well for long periods of time by running hard at opposition defence and directing and supporting other players around her, and deserved more than the one goal she scored. Many spectators commented on her skilful play. She was supported in the midfield and up front well by Lauren B, Hannah and Kezie, who scored two good goals.
