The Avon House hockey squad played with commendable skill and determination to secure third place in ISA’s London North Tournament.
The excellent surface at Old Loughtonians’ Club encouraged free flowing hockey and Avon House qualified for the semi-finals by winning two and drawing two of their group matches without conceding a single goal. They were then drawn against the eventual winners, a very capable Gatehouse team, and succumbed after making a slow start, losing 0-2. The team bounced back convincingly, however, beating Vita et Pax 3-0 in the 3rd/4th place play off match.
Congratulations to all the squad who took part: Eesa (c), Alfie, Rithvik, Aadam, Amir, Theo, Amelie, Ananya, Sophia and Venaya. Thanks to Mr Ireland and Mrs Price for their advice and support.
