On Tuesday 28th February six students from Year 5 and 6 competed at the Sevenoaks Hockey Festival. The tournament started off with a 2-0 defeat to Sevenoaks Primary with the team nervous and working out a system of how to succeed as a team. From this point on the players grew from individuals to a team extremely quickly with all players playing a key part in the success which was to follow. Nine games were played in total by the team with 3 wins 3 draws and 3 defeats, with the win of the tournament coming in the very last game a hard fought victory coming in the last moments of the match against the eventual tournament runners up. Otford finished in an outstanding fourth place in the table out of thirteen teams,
Today was the first time the team had ever played together along with introduction of new rules on the day of the event. Being there watching the team compete for each other was very pleasing to see and all can be very proud of their achievements.
I would also like to say a huge thank you to the parents who attending for they continued support throughout even during the rain.
