Silver Medallists at Surrey Hockey Trophy
Freemen's 2nd XI narrowly missed out in the Final of the Surrey Hockey Trophy Competition
On Wednesday 4th October Freemen's 2nd XI performed fantastically in the Surrey Hockey Trophy. Great play all round by every single member of the team in a highly competitive, hard fought tournament. In the group stages Freemen's were outstanding beating Reigate Grammar 3-0 & Croydon High School 1-0. Unfortunately a 'blip' in proceedings led to a 1-0 loss to Tiffin but then the squad re-grouped and drew 0-0 to a very strong and physical Woldingham. In the last group game Freemen's again raised their game and beat St Teresa's 4-0.
In the semi-final both teams played exceptionally. Freemen's battled hard in defence and soaked up a lot of pressure. Then a quick break by the Freemen's forwards led to a great goal leading to an overall win against Rosebery.
In the final we again met the strong Woldingham 1st XI. Again Freemen's battled hard but were unlucky to concede a penalty stroke. Outstanding play continued from both teams and with no goals scored in open play, Woldingham took advantage of a late penalty corner. Resulting in a final score of 2-0.
Overall a fantastic result and winners of the silver medal.
