Austin Friars 1st VI vs  North of England Indoor Tournament
On: Thursday, 29 Nov 2018
Venue: Away

Our first team of just seven players travelled to Bradford to play in the North of England Indoor Hockey Tournament. Our opponents were RGS Newcastle, Queen Ethelburga's and Ripon Grammar School.

Our first match, against RGS, was our strongest match. Having not played indoor for a year, the pace of hockey took us by surprise, but we adapted well, using the sides to our advantage. RGS put two goals past us but we responded quickly. equalising the score after some intense game play which meant that we found space in the D. The game ended 4 - 2 to RGS with Isabel Wood scoring both goals. We were pleased with this resul as RG had beaten us 7 - 1 earlier in the season. The team continued to play a high standard of hockey throughout the rest of the tournament. A mention must go to Ellie Henderson who was playing at the tournament for the first time. She played extemely well in goal.

Player of the match was given to Jane Brass for her consistency and strength in defending.
