U12 Girls finished 3rd at the County In2Hockey Tournament
Bicester U12 Girls finished 3rd at the County In2Hockey tournament at Bloxham School, sharing the place with Oxford Hawks 2.
The girls finished 2nd in their pool of 5 teams, with 2 victories over Witney (3-0) and Banbury (6-0), and 2 draws with Hawks 2 (2-2) and Wallingford 1 (1-1). This set them up for a hard fought Semi Final against Hawks 1, where Bicester unfortunately weren't able to finish a number of goal scoring chances whereas a more clinical Hawks side took their chances to take a 2-0 victory.
The 3rd/4th place game was a re-match against the Hawks 2's team that the girls had faced during the pool stage. Again it was a close fought affair. The girls dug deep to try and find the elusive winning goal, but although the scoreline was different this time, it ended up a draw again, at 1-1. The teams agreed to share 3rd place honours, rather than go to a penalty shootout to decide ranking.
Well done girls for a fantastic season, you've made so much progress as a group and shown great tenacity, playing the game with real enthusiasm and determination. Most importantly you've had a lot of fun in the process, keep it up!
