OS Hockey Ladies Take on College 1st XI
The weather was kinder than expected but our opposition was far from gentle as we faced the College 1st XI for our annual ladies' hockey match. The OS opened the scoring in the early minutes of the game but the College were far from disheartened and were relentless in their pace and accuracy. Despite outstanding teamwork, skill and determination, the OS could not get the better of the incredibly well drilled College team who emerged victorious from our 2019 encounter with a winning score of 8-4. A score that does not fully reflect just how close the match was in numerous places.
We are incredibly grateful to our OS team who made a huge effort to join us and represent the OS Society in such an admirable way. It was impossible to tell that this was the first time our players had ever played together as a team. Each player played an invaluable part in the team, which was eloquently led by OS Captain Abbie Barrett (YH,09-14).
