Prep Deaprtment's mixed hockey team played in the county finals held at Torbay Leisure Centre. Representing the South Dartmoor area, we played 7 group games during the morning. Expertly marshalled by Morgan Couch from the back, we managed to win all of our games without conceding a goal. That led to a semi-final spot against Roadhempston, who had beaten us earlier this term. However, heroic defence and goal poaching instincts, led us to a narrow 1-0 win and a place in the final. The final was a very close contest, which finished 0 – 0, although we did have 3 goals disallowed! This led to golden goals and as we pushed for the winning goal, we were caught on the break and unfortunately lost 1 – 0. This really was a fine performance from all of our players and they should all feel justifiably proud. Special mentioned must go to Morgan who covered every single blade of grass on the pitch and led his team superbly.
