South Brent Take Home Bronze
December 2018 (Totnes Learning Community Competition - Level 1 and Dartmoor School Sport Partnership Finals - Level 2)
Dart Hockey Club Champions
December 2018 (Totnes Learning Community Competition - Level 1)
Three squads from South Brent took part in a four week Hockey league that was hosted by Dart Hockey Club, Totnes. The children, who were varied in experience, demonstrated true grit and determination throughout the league fixtures making a huge improvement from week one to week four. The league split in the final week into the cup and plate competitions. The 'A' team qualified for the cup and both the 'B' and 'C' teams qualified for the plate.
The 'C' team, which consisted of players that were mostly new to the sport, worked their socks off and improved so much week on week. Their defending at times, was superb, with last ditch tackles and awesome clearances denying the opposition the chance to score goals. The 'B' team slowly grew together as a squad as time went on. Their confidence and self belief slowly rose allowing them to play some wonderful hockey at times. The 'B' team finished in style with a win and a draw to have the exact same record as The Grove B which resulted in them both sharing the plate.
The 'A' team started strong and didn't look back with a record of played 17, won 17! They demonstrated quality hockey over the four weeks with superb passing between the lines, switching play to and from either wing, and deadly penetration of the scoring 'D'. The Grove A gave them a real close game in the final game but the strength of the squad came through with a 1v0 win to take home the cup title. The league has been running for 9 years and it is the first time that a team has won all of its games without conceding a goal.
Well done to every player that has played, you really have done the school proud.
