Boys' Inter-House Hockey

Thank you very much to all the Houses this afternoon for taking part in a great Senior and Junior House Hockey competition. It was played in a very good spirit , with the boys playing with determination and passion. The weather was freezing so well done to all boys who participated despite the cold conditions. A special mention to G-House for a great display today and earning a point against Duffus in the Senior Competition.

The junior Final was a very close affair with Duffus just pipping Cumming by 1-0 so well done to Duffus. 

The Senior Final was another great match in which Cumming just overcame Bruce to win the title.  A big thanks to Tom Harvey and Emily Desmond for their umpiring and organising this afternoon. It was a lovely way to finish off a term of boys' hockey.

U15B XI lost 0-3 - the boys played very well until the opposition scored with just ten minutes to go and then they ran out of steam.

U14A XI lost 1-5 in what was a very encouraging first game for the boys during which they started to work well together as a team. This is very promising for the season ahead.
