Yr 5/6 Quicksticks Hockey 2017/18
Posted on 04/12/2017
On 30th November schools across the Hounslow borough attended the Quicksticks Hockey 2017/18 event and battled to represent LBOH at the London Finals.
The event was hosted at Indian Gymkhana in Isleworth and some outstanding performance were shown on the day, both individually and as part of a team. The three hour competition saw 16 schools progress to the knockout phase, 8 schools move forward to the quarter finals and 4 schools secure a place in the semis.
St Mary's B defeated Ivybidge A 2-0 in their semi-final match and St Mary's A beat Smallberry Green A 2-0 in an intense round of penalties.
The final, therefore, consisted of St Mary's A and St Mary's B. St Mary's B narrowly missed out as St Mary's A took the win with a close 1-0. Both teams showed tremendous effort on the day and both will progress to represent Hounslow in the School Games Finals as this competition will require squads of 8.
A huge thank you to all participating schools for contributing to such a great event. A big thank you must also go to all officials who helped out on the day, Jenny Wile and Indian Gymkhana and London Welsh Community team for their support and commitment to making the event a success.
