Yesterday (19th March), Christ College was the location for two cracking South Wales Hockey tournaments (U16s and U18s) as teams battled to earn themselves a place in the National Finals.
In the U18s tournament, the Christ College 1st XI’s first match was against reigning National Champions Ysgol Glantaf. it was a pulsating encounter, with Christ College winning the tie 2-1, thanks to a last minute goal.. Based on other results in the round-robin tournament, Christ College knew that victory over Llandovery College would see them safely through to the National Finals.
Christ College beat Llandovery College, 3-1, in a match that was tougher than the score suggests. The tournament victory now means that the Christ College 1st XI, under captain and Welsh Hockey international Ben Wigmore, now progress to the Welsh National Finals which are being held in Newtown on Thursday 3rd April.
This follows on from appearances by our Girls U18s, U16s and U14s XI in their respective National Finals and confirms Christ College’s status as one of the top Hockey-playing schools in the country.
It was bitter disappointment however for the Christ College U16s in their tournament as they were pipped in the final by Monmouth Comprehensive School.
The Christ College U16s won their pool, beating Monmouth and Gwyr and drawing against Tasker Milward. Topping the pool meant the Christ College U16s went into a semi final against Crickhowell High School, which they won comfortably 3-0.
The final was a thrilling re-match between against Monmouth Comprehensive School who they had beaten earlier in the day. The final ended 1-1 despite numerous chances for both teams to win it. Monmouth however held their nerve during the Penalty Shoot-Out and proceed on to the National Finals.
