Hockey - U13 1st VII vs Barnardiston Hall (Year 8s only)
Due to this being the last hockey match of the term we decided to field an all Year 8 team. The boys adapted well to their new team mates and the camaraderie was great to see. At half time we were 3-2 down despite goals from Matt C and Zeke L but the second half saw a growth in confidence and with many more shots on goal narrowly missing and two more well executed we were able to claw our way up to a 4-4 draw. A fair result and a good end to the season.
Hockey - U13 3rd VII vs Barnardiston Hall (Year 8s only)
Oliver R was amazing in goal and had a fabulous game saving many accurate shots at goal. Lance L-R scored the only Holmwood goal with a hard 'smack' into the back board. Charley G, Elliot W and Archie L had fairly strong games at the back and closed a lot of attacks in the first half, but struggled in the second half as the opposition became more skillful on the Holmwood grass pitches. Max G, Max D, Ethan W and Matthew J all tried hard but were unable to convert any chances that came along. A great all round game and a good effort by all. Well done for the season.
