Sydenham High’s hockey team end the season on a high

On Thursday 15th March, Sydenham High hockey team played a 9 aside game against St Dunstan’s; the last game of the season. The team played well in the first half, managing to keep St Dunstan’s out of their scoring half but the the score was still, frustratingly, 0-0 at half time. When the game started again, we maintained our energy and a few minutes into the second half saw our first goal. After this, the goals kept coming. A short corner ensured our second goal was scored. The ball was hit out by Ellie and hit into the goal by Charlotte.

Not satisfied with two goals, we continued to play hard and, even when St Dunstan’s made a breakthrough, the defenders managed to work together to clear the ball out. Then we received another short corner when the ball hit one of the opposition’s feet in the scoring area. Again, a great hit by Ellie allowed Charlotte to score her second goal to make the score 3-0. Near to the end of the game, St Dunstan’s tried to make a run up the pitch but an amazing tackle by Sabiha stopped them, and a quick pass to Charlotte who dribbled past the defender resulted in a hat trick for Charlotte and a fourth and final goal for the Sydenham High hockey team.

Emily Walsh won player of the match for her excellent defending and the whole team were pleased with the win. A great way to end the hockey season.
