Fun at Kidlington Primary Schools Hockey Festival
On Thursday 8 March, Linda Billington, James Rogers and Henri Gordon all went along to the Kidlington School Sport Partnership Hockey Festival at Gosford, for Years 5 and 6. Five local primary schools took part - Dr South's, Edward Feild, St Thomas More, North Kidlington and West Kidlington, and some fantastic hockey was played, as well as great team spirit and determination!
One semi final was particularly exciting - it was in deadlock after full time so extra time was played, but taking one player off each side every minute - but it wasn't until it was one on one when the winning goal was scored! In the end Dr South's ran out deserved winners in the final, but a very good time was had by all despite the rather brisk conditions.
Henri, Linda and James did all the umpiring as well as working with the Young Leaders giving them coaching advice for their teams. Oxford Hawks look forward to supporting the event again next year!
