Match Report
Bromsgrove School Boys-U11A vs  Bilton Grange Tournament
On: Saturday, 12 Jan 2019
Venue: Away

The U11A boys hockey team travelled to Bilton Grange on Saturday afternoon for a seven a side hockey tournament. Our first match was against a very competitive Crescent side. Bromsgrove got two quick early goals and were in control for the majority of the game. However, Crescent scored in the last play of the game but Bromsgrove won 2-1. Bromsgrove were again victorious against Bilton Grange B to win 2-0.

The game of the day was against Foremarke Hall, due to a slow start by ourselves, Foremarke were in control and took an early lead. Bromsgrove quickly turned things around when Ollie D and Will B combining tremendously to equalise and draw 1-1. Which proved to be a very crucial point in the overall standings. Well deserved 3-0 victories against Bedford and Bilton Grange soon followed. We dominated possession against Solihull but unfortunately we were able to score, and drew 0-0.

The boys were very nervous waiting for the final results although the mathematicians of the group were quietly confident. Bromsgrove and Foremarke Hall were tied together on points. It was then to be decided on goals difference but both schools were still tied. Therefore, 1st Place was decided on goals scored. Bromsgrove had scored only 1 more goal than Foremarke! Meaning we were the Champions! Beau V-H (Captain) went up to receive the trophy. Will B top scorer of the day with 5 goals. Ollie D was Bromsgrove’s Player of the Tournament.

Well done to all who participated. An outstanding achievement by all: Freddie L, Jasper G, Will H,, Freddie S, Ollie D, Beau V-H, Freddie L, Alfie H, Roberto S and Will B.
