Bishop’s Stortford College U16 Girls’ Hockey team won the County Championship on Tuesday 3rd October, at Oaklands College, St Albans. With a dominant display of free flowing passing hockey, the girls won all 6 games, scoring 22 goals and conceding 0.
The team comfortably won all their group games: against Hitchin (3-0), Aldenham (8-0), Hockerill (1-0) and Haileybury (3-0). In the semi-finals, the girls won 4-0 against Knights Templar, which put them through to the finals, once again against Haileybury.
