U16 Girls Hockey Win Bronze at Investec Championship

On Wednesday, the girls U16 hockey team travelled to the two day Investec Girls’ Schools Championships at the Lee Valley Hockey Centre in London. In the final of the Tier 2 championship, Oundle took on Sherborne School for bronze.

Sherborne scored an early goal, but Oundle equalled just four minutes later with a penalty corner from Emily McParland (D), finishing 1-1 at half time.

The second half was tough and tense, with spectators on the edge of their seats, until Tallulah Gurney (K) scored a field goal in the 47th minute. The final score was 2-1, with Oundle taking bronze in the championship.
