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.
