Having won the U18 Hampshire Trophy Tournament a couple of weeks ago, the girls’ first XI travelled to Woking Hockey Club on Wednesday to play in the regional rounds.
Bedales were placed in a group with Stowe, Alleyns and Reading Blue Coat. All games were incredibly tight, with three 1-0 scorelines. Two results went against Bedales and they had one win, which included a well-worked short corner routine, finished off calmly by Amber Pearson. This result ensured that Bedales squeezed into the play-off rounds, but a combination of three very tough games and the cold weather proved too much for Bedales, as they lost 4-0 to St Mary’s, Ascot.
The team are the first to represent Bedales at this regional level, so they should be incredibly proud of their achievement, and the manner in which they represented Bedales Hockey was exemplary.
