Sports Report - Yr 10/11 Hockey
The girls played with fight and enthusiasm in their final games before Christmas against Haygrove. Missing a couple of key players through illness(and lack of organisation!) the girls called on a couple of players at training to fill the slots. Alice and Morgan played brilliantly and definitely added speed and energy into the midfield. Olivia was calm in defence and alongwith Jasmine, Eva and Xena played solidly to block the relentless attack in the first game. Despite having a goalkeeper from Haygrove, Chilton went 2 goals down quickly.
In the second game the girls saw the ball in attack until the Haygrove yr 11s got used to the pitch. Then the defence were pinned down for long periods. They defended penalty corners well and kept the score at 0-0 for most of the game. A concerted effort by Haygrove and a tough battle following a corner led to Haygrove bundling the ball over the line for a 1-0 scoreline. Well done to all.
YR 10/11 ended up as 3rd in area, whilst yr 7 and yr8 have both become area champions and now represent Sedgemoor at the Somerset Winter Games at Millfield on Dec 12th.
Our yr 8 boys and yr 10/11 boys also compete in the county finals day on 12th Dec
