Aspiring Girls’ Hockey stars at Rydal Penrhos produced some exceptional recent results upon their return to competitive action this term.
It’s been fantastic to see the return of competitive sporting fixtures throughout the autumn term at Rydal Penrhos. Although everyone at the school is still taking every possible precaution relating to COVID-19, improved restrictions from the Welsh Government ensured our young athletes could get back doing what they love and working as a team to achieve their goals.
This return to action has seen Girls’ Hockey take centre stage in recent weeks, with age category teams testing their skills against other schools from across the region and developing key areas such as in-game adjustments, communication and technique.
The school’s First Team took on Oswestry School on Saturday 20 November and turned in a fabulous display to secure a tremendous 3-1 victory.
There were a host of fine individual contributions during the encounter, with goals from Eloise Chapman and Jasmin Beckett-Donald getting Rydal Penrhos ahead and some crucial saves courtesy of Zara Whelan got them over the line.
This represents another fine collective achievement from the First Team, who can all be proud of their commitment, work ethic, and ability to motivate throughout.
There was further cause for celebration courtesy of the U13 squad, who came away with a resounding 5-1 triumph thanks to a sensational attacking display.
Charlotte Payne continued her fine run of form with two goals, with Lily Copeland, Olivia O’Leary and Isabella Thomas also hitting the target.
A special mention also goes to Cammie de la Mare Norris, who stepped in as goalkeeper at the 11th hour and made some eye-catching stops.
Rydal Penrhos’ U13 squad also emerged victorious from their recent fixture at Liverpool College thanks to a 3-1 scoreline, with Cammie and a brace from Charlotte playing a significant role in another encouraging team performance.
The U12 team continue to impress, which bodes well for their future at the school with additional development in the weeks, months and years ahead.
Well done, girls! We look forward to hearing of further successes.
