The annual Loretto Hockey Tournament proved incredibly successful for Cundall Manor School as they claimed two titles at the leading independent school.
The girls from Cundall Manor School competed against a wide range of prep and junior schools from across Scotland and the North of England before claiming the two hockey titles on offer.
The tournament had teams from Cundall Manor, Belhaven, Ardvreck, Loretto, St Mary’s and Cargilfield schools competing for two crowns.
Teams from Cundall competed in the U11 and U13 competitions with the U11’s going unbeaten in the group stages before beating St Mary’s 3-1 in the final. This victory means that the school retain the title which the team claimed last year.
The U13 competition saw the school’s U12 team compete against a number of highly physical teams before meeting Cargilfield in a tense final. Following a 0-0 draw in regulation time, the match was decided on shuffles with Cundall coming out on top beating a strong team 2-1 following four quality saves from goalkeeper Lily.
Head of Girl’s Games at Cundall Manor School, Louise Bessey, said: “I am incredibly proud of the girls who put in a series of fantastic performances against some very good sides.”
