We first played The Elms, and we got a good 3-0 win with goals from Barney P and Barney R and me, but if we wanted to win this tournament, we knew we would have to play better.
We then played Moor Park and got a 2-0 win where we should have got a few more, but Hector K and I got one each, with Monty H and Rufus B (Vice-Captain) defending with confidence all day, and it looked like no one would ever get past them.
The next game was our third game in a row and the weather got a bit colder, but we got a good win in a tough game vs King's, Gloucester who had a few very good county players. We played well and with confidence, and ended up winning 2-0 with goals from Hector K and me.
We then had a game off, and the rain started to come down, but it did not change our mindset to win this hockey tournament. We played RGS Worcester, and it was a tough game, but we got away with a 1-1 draw.
We topped our group and played Pinewood in the Semi-Final. We beat them comfortably, 3-0, with Barney P scoring 2 great goals and Rupert also picking up a goal.
We played against St Hugh’s in the final, which for some players was their third time in 3 years! The game was 1-1. In extra time no one scored, and it went down to shuffles. Hector K, Barney R and I all missed one and scored one under great pressure. Wilf E (our goalkeeper) kept superbly in the final. He kept us in it and saved the last shuffle to make us come home with medals and a trophy.
