ON 8TH MARCH, AFTER 6 MONTHS OF HARD TRAINING, THE CHRIST COLLEGE UNDER 18’S HOCKEY TEAM ARRIVED AT SWANSEA UNIVERSITY SPORTS VILLAGE FOR THE HOCKEY WALES NATIONAL SCHOOLGIRLS U18 FINALS.

Christ College then played Ysgol Gyfun Cwm Rhymni, with Willow Ransome securing a 1-0 win. Two terrific goals from Sarah Jeffes and Katy Garrett in their next pool match against Ysgol Glan Clwyd led to a 2-1 win and their place in the semi-final secured.

Tensions were high and Christ College made terrific tackles and were fast on the attack. U18’s Captain Cerys Jones made terrific saves in goal and managed to keep the score 0-0 at half time.
The 2nd half ended at 0-0, which meant it was down to penalty shuffles-5 chances at goal to score within 8 seconds.

St Joseph’s missed the goal by a fraction to make Christ College the Hockey Wales National Schoolgirls U18’s Champions for the second year running with a 2-1 result.
