Portsmouth Schools’ Hockey Tournament 22nd March 2017:  Gold Medal Winners!


Solent Juniors Hockey Champions

                                         Solent Juniors Hockey Champions: Gold medal winners!

Congratulations to Solent Junior School’s hockey players who performed superbly well in the Portsmouth Schools’ tournament on Wednesday.  As there is such fabulous enthusiasm and talent amongst Solent pupils with regards to the wonderful sport of hockey, we were fortunate to be able to enter two teams.  Both teams can be proud of their performance, with the B team narrowly missing out on a bronze medal and the A team being crowned champions.


In the past, Solent have struggled to beat one team in particular: Northern Parade have regularly been awarded first place.  It was a nail-biting match yet again against this strong team, concluding with a 1-1 draw.  Solent then had to ensure they won all their other matches, as they were convinced Northern Parade would not slip up!  When the tournament finished, Solent had managed to keep a clean score sheet with the exception of conceding one phenomenal goal from none other than their own B team!  With Northern parade winning all their other matches, it was necessary to calculate both teams’ goal differences.  Incredibly, both teams’ goal differences were identical so it was decided that both teams could be crowned champions.

Portsmouth Schools’ Hockey League November/December 2016

For 5 consecutive Thursdays, Solent Junior School Hockey team took part in league matches at Admiral Lord Nelson School.  The team met tough competition but quickly learnt to alter their strategy in order to stand the best chance of defeating their rivals.  All members of the team developed their hockey skills and it was a pleasure to see them showing great team spirit, spurring each other on and trying out different tactics.  The team were pleased to be awarded with Bronze medals at the end of the league.

Solent Junior school’s mixed hockey team began the season in spectacular style, convincingly winning all but one of their matches during Thursday’s tournament at Admiral Lord Nelson School.  All members of the team contributed to the superb result.  The ball was shared around to all players, with children positioning themselves well and making the most of opportunities presented to them.  The team is now looking forward to the next 5 Thursdays where they will play in the Portsmouth Schools’ league.
