Hockey: Brecon secure inter-house title
December 28, 2020

Brecon won this year’s Rydal Penrhos Prep School inter-house hockey title.

Aspiring hockey players from across Rydal Penrhos Prep School competed against each other during one of the highlights of the inter-house calendar.

The school held it’s annual hockey championships prior to the end of term, which saw all three competitive school houses compete in a round-robin format to determine the overall winner.

First up was a hotly contested game between Brecon and Snowdon, which saw two outstanding goalkeeping displays from Amelie Skinner and Kenzie Livingstone and some tremendous play from Ella Payne and Honey Knightly as Brecon prevailed by a narrow 1-0 margin.

Pembroke then took to the astro-turf for the first time against Snowdon, who were looking to finish on a high note after their narrow defeat in the previous encounter.

A superb attacking performance from Snowdon eventually saw them come away with a 4-0 triumph, but Pembroke deserves a tremendous amount of credit for battling hard right until the final whistle.

Brecon went into their final game against Pembroke knowing a win would seal a memorable championship win for the talented group, and they overcame some fierce resistance to come away with a 3-1 success and secure the crown.

Although the current COVID-19 restrictions are preventing normal fixtures from taking place at Rydal Penrhos, the school is still doing everything to ensure pupils are fit, active, healthy, and improving in a sporting environment.

Training sessions are still taking place under strict social distancing guidelines implemented by the Welsh Government and Sport Wales, and events such as this one are another great way for pupils to improve skills in a competitive setting and improve wellbeing in the process.
