The sun was shining all afternoon, making it a glorious day for hockey but providing difficult conditions for the girls to play in, who tired quickly in the heat. Winning all matches in the group stage the team went on to play King’s Chester in the semi-finals of the cup competition. This was a closely fought game and displayed end –to- end attack by both sides. Jimena M-T was outstanding in goal, keeping her side in the game. A big uproar from the crowd gave the girls a well needed boost. The score was 0-0 at the final whistle leading into extra time, sudden death! With still no goal the match progressed onto penalty flicks; best of 3. SMH came out on top winning 1-0. The final was played between SMH and Kirkham, who won 2-0. Well done to all girls who played.

Congratulations to the U13 Netball team who have qualified for the National finals for the second year running.

The regional round was held at Uppingham School, Leicestershire. The girls went through the group stages winning 7 of their matches and losing only one. SMH played Sedbergh for automatic qualification through to the finals, narrowly missing out by only two goals. Their final game was against Formarke Hall, playing for 3rd or 4th place. By this stage in the competition the girls had given their all and were feeling fatigued, but sheer determination and some excellent play on court saw victory, winning 7-5 on the whistle and qualification to the National Finals.
