U11 mixed hockey v Burton Hathow (H) – Wednesday 17th October

Our Form 6 children played as a newly-formed mixed hockey team today against Burton Hathow. Many of the boys had not played hockey before and this was a great opportunity for them to try their skills. The visiting team started well with early goals in the first quarter. The game continued in this vein, but Highfields consistently played valiantly and showed buckets-full of grit and determination. Goals from James and Scarlett gave the team the boost they needed and everyone ended the game in high spirits, having learnt lots from the experience. Mrs McGhie and the parents spectating were incredibly proud of everyone’s efforts, particularly some star rookie players who are ones to watch out for in the future!
