Hockey Heroics 06.02.14

The Under 16 Hockey Team has progressed to the Midlands Finals to be played in March.  Having been successful in the County Tournament they came up against Worksop College and Bromsgrove School in the “Zone Pool Final”, which was played at Loughborough.  By defeating Worksop College in their first match and despite losing to a very strong Bromsgrove team in the final match, the team secured its place in the next round, the winners and runners-up of which go through to the National Finals.

Everyone played their part, but special mention must be made of Captain Edward Snelling whose heroics in goal kept LGS in the game against Bromsgrove for longer than seemed possible; he was awarded Man of the Match.  Yaseen Kasuji, Joe Halfpenny and Jamie Ellis scored for LGS on the day and Yaseen was Man of the Match against Worksop.
