Hot on the heels of their league-clinching (for the first time in the School’s history) result at Larne Grammar in the South Antrim League last week, the 1st XI travelled to England to play as a guest of former pupil Faye Kidd, Captain of Cambridge Girls’ Hockey, against the team of the Oxford Girls’ Captain former school in what is billed as the Varsity Schools’ Cup. After a 3-0 win (goals from Sasha Lawther (2) & Erin Getty) against Latymer Upper School in a warmup game, the team secured the Varsity match with a closely-fought 3-2 victory against Reed’s School. Alice Reid, Lucy Stewart and Erin Getty provided the goals in the immensely entertaining encounter.
Well done to all the team and to our hosts from Latymer and Reed’s Schools.
