The Felsted Hockey Summer League competition came to its conclusion recently after four weeks of competition. Eight mixed teams made up of members of yrs 9-L6th played in a series of pool matches prior to this week, in order to qualify for the semi-finals.
After two very close semi-final matches, the Lions and the Cheetahs progressed to the 2019 final. An early goal from captain Andrei Lebedev put the Cheetahs in the lead, but they needed some outstanding saves from their goalkeeper, Jake Maddison, to prevent the Lions from drawing level before half time. The second half saw goals from Jess Olorenshaw, Harriet Willmott and Tom Steingold to take the Cheetahs to a 4-1 victory.
Many thanks to all the L6th students who captained sides this year, and well done to all those pupils who took part in the competition. This competition has been running for five seasons now, and each year a different team has been crowned champions. Will next season be the first time a team gets their name on the Golden Stick Trophy for a second time?
