The U14A Moreton Hockey team travelled to Shrewsbury School to take part in the Tier 1 County Tournament. Moreton were put in a group with Shrewsbury High School, Wrekin College and William Brookes, which was won by Moreton.
Moreton then progressed to play Ellesmere College in the semi-final. Moreton created lots of chances but couldn’t score past the Ellesmere goalkeeper, so the game went to penalty flicks. Moreton held their nerve and won 2-1 to progress to the final.
The final was a tight game between Moreton Hall and Shrewsbury School. With neither team managing to score, the game went to penalty flicks. After 5 flicks each the score was 2-2; Phoebe scored in sudden death and then Gaia made the save to mean Moreton won 3-2.
Moreton finished the day as U14 Shropshire Tier 1 County Champions. The girls now progress to Regionals later on this term.
Captain for the day, Holly, commented: “As a team we got better and learnt through the day. We had a really good day and are looking forward to Regionals.”
