Kingswood Hockey Club Field 10 Teams In Tough Canford Block Fixture

On Saturday, Kingswood Hockey Club had their toughest block fixture with 10 teams fielded against Canford.

The 1st XI went 2-0 up in the first 15 minutes but unfortunately, they could not sustain this. Canford equalised and then got a short corner at full time, which was slotted away.

The 2nd XI, 3rd XI and 4th XI all lost by only one goal and they showed superb resilience and all goal keepers have been commended as they were all kept busy and all played well.

The juniors played Dauntsey's in what were quite physical matches but high quality. The team of The Week are the U12As who remain unbeaten. Kingswood had a difficult start after going a goal down early. Kingswood showed their character and picked up a 3-2 win.

The U13 team who represented Kingswood at the County tournament on Monday played five group games and only lost one to Redmaid's. They met Colston's in the semi-final and won 3-2 and then met Redmaid's again in the final. It was a 1-0 loss but the top two teams go through to the West Finals in March.
