Barrow Hills’ U11A boys’ hockey team has scooped Gold at the South Regional Schools In2Hockey finals, held at Woking Hockey Club on Friday 22nd March. The victorious team - which comprised Matthew Haines, Alexander Royds, James Berry, Benedict Richmond, Dominic Jolliffe, Cade Tierney, Theo Shaw and Louis Vacula-Ashton – showed real courage and bravery throughout the competition as they were consistently pitched against teams from much bigger schools. The Barrow Hills’ boys won their games to come top of the group, beating Amherst, New College and St. Piran’s. In the quarter finals the team placed Dulwich, peppering the goal with shots throughout the game and being rewarded with a 2-0 win. Facing their nemesis, Cranleigh (who Barrow Hills narrowly lost out to on penalty flicks in the final of the Surrey Cup), the boys pulled off a 1-0 win with keeper Benedict making some amazing saves. In the final, Barrow Hills faced Amherst again and despite going a goal down, the team demonstrated great resilience and resolve, going on to score two goals to win 2-1. Commenting on the match, coaches James Clarke and Jonjo Conway said, “We could not be prouder of our boys. They have all worked super hard and supported each other to present a truly united team. Even though the opposition represented hockey teams from much bigger schools than Barrow Hills, the boys never faltered in their determination and battled through to win. What a great example to the rest of the School!” Note to editors: In2Hockey is the seven-a-side version of the game played on half a pitch.
