Our Under 12’s met for the second time this season to play 3 games at Droitwich on what is becoming a now familiar cold afternoon.
In the first game the side started well but found themselves behind to two breakaway goals by Colwall & Malvern, and then unfortunately due to a couple of injuries – one thought to quite serious at the time – the match was abandoned before KHP could reply. In the second game against Redditch, KHP put in a good performance but thoughts where with their injured colleague and sadly conceded a goal in the dying minutes of the game.
With one more game to play the team rallied and got a well-deserved win in a entertaining game against Harborne with Matthew Kingsbury scoring for a 1 – 0 win.
Well done to the boys and girls and fortunately the injury ended up just badly bruised knock of hard hockey ball on a cold afternoon.
Under 8’s First Taste of Mini-tournament
On a chilly Sunday morning in Stourport, King Heaths youngest recruits took their first steps at playing mini-tournament Hockey.
They played a simpler version of Hockey called QuickSticks – larger lighter ball, 4 a side, no goalkeepers and with rules made easier to keep the game moving.
We played 5 games, coming away with a win, draw and 3 losses but everyone had fun and enjoyed the morning and can’t wait for the next meeting in December.
Under 10’s Enjoy Mixed Fortunes
Following on after the Under 8, the Under 10 had their second meeting of the season.
Again playing 3 games but getting a draw and two losses, but were unfortunate to not get 2 wins and a loss. Lewis Harris again scoring.
Thanks to parents and player for braving the cold.
First U12 mini-tournament of the year was held at Stourport HC on Sunday 8th October.
A new looking U12 side played 3 games coming away with two good draws and a loss. A good team performance in all games, with the loss coming against a well drilled Stourport A team.
All looking forward to the next tournament in November.
KHP Juniors had their first Under 10s mini-tournament of the season stepping in as a late replacement at Edgbaston.
Playing three 15 minute games against Olton, Edgbaston and Hampton teams. Coming away with a win against Edgbaston with Lewis Harris scoring, and losing their other two games 1-0 and 2-0.
All the games where close contests where really any team could have won. Well done everyone.
