The first county tournament of the year saw an U16 team led by Emily Devoy travel north to Llandrindod Wells, hoping to win back a title that Christ College had last held in 2010.
The first pool saw CCB take on the hosts in a tight match that was resolved with a neat finish from Caroline von Roenn that gave Christ College a 1-0 victory. Next up were John Beddoes, who provided stern resistance but were ultimately overpowered 2-1 thanks to goals from von Roenn and Issy Morris. The third pool match was a much more comfortable affair, with Christ College sweeping aside Builth 5-0, with goals from Amy Baker, Annabel James, Natalia Fisher and a brace from Emma Pryce. CCB then moved into the semi-finals, meeting Gwernyfed and completely dominating the match, running out 5-0 winners once again, thanks to goals from Baker, von Roenn, Morris, Julia Copp and Bea Hayes.
The final saw a rematch between CCB and John Beddoes, which Christ College seemed completely in control of after an early goal from Morris. In the dying seconds, however, the determined John Beddoes side won a penalty corner which they converted to send the match into extra time. When this ended goalless, the match went into a penalty shoot-out via Penalty Shuffles (1 player versus the Goalkeeper with 10 seconds to score).
Christ College scored their first two shuffles through Copp and Hayes before missing the next two. John Beddoes however missed all of their first 4 shuffles, thanks to some heroics from CCB goalkeeper Kate Cook.
Christ College thus emerged as winners and will now progress to the Regional final at the end of November. Who would bet against them going all the way to Nationals?
