The Christ College 1st XI’s tournament started with a tight match against the eventual champions, Rydal Penhros. In a tight match, Christ College lost by the narrowest of margins, 1-0. Christ College then bounced back with a 1-0 victory over Ysgol Penweddig, thanks to Bella Fisher’s 18th goal of the season.This spurred the girls on as they then pushed on with a second 1-0 victory over Ysgol Brynhyfryd, with Lauren Williams breaking the deadlock.
Two 0-0 draws then followed for the Christ College 1st XI against Brynteg and Ysgol Glantaf, which placed Christ College team into 2nd place in the table.This meant that the girls’ final match would be against their bogey team, Croesyceiliog from Cwmbran, with the knowledge that a draw would win them the silver medals.
In a very hard fought encounter however, Croesyceiliog prevailed in a hard-fought match, winning 1-0, which meant Christ College ended up in 3rd position and in Bronze medal position.
“Despite the disappointment felt by the Christ College squad, they put up a tremendous fight, played hard but fair until the end, and were excellently led by Captain Ariadne Bridge.” said Christ College’s hockey coach, Dr Dominic Phelps.
