U14 Lancashire Hockey Champions

U14 Hockey Lancashire Champions!


The U14 squad travelled to Preston sports arena to compete in the first round of the England Hockey National Schools Competition. Five teams competed from across Lancashire including Stonyhurst, Rossall, AKS and Lytham.
In the first match KGS met Stonyhurst College, it took a little time to settle but once in full flow KGS dominated the game retaining possession and playing the ball around beautifully to open up acres of space. The final score was 2-0 with goals from Natasha Hartley-Smith and Talia Armstead. In the next game KGS met Rossall, once again the girls stuck to the game plan and dominated throughout the game, resulting in a 6-0 victory.
Next up were Lytham, Ella McDonald played amazingly well play-making from the centre of midfield. The first goal came followed by a further 5 to leave the final score at 6-0 to KGS.
AKS were the final game of the day for the KGS Girls, within seconds of the start whistle Natasha Hartley-Smith made a great run down the left side of the pitch to set McDonald through on goal. Another goal followed shortly after from Talia Armstead after a terrific attack down the middle of the pitch. The final goal came just before half time to seal a 3-0 victory.
A fabulous performance from a very strong U14 squad!
