Wow! There were tense scenes at the P.4 end of term hockey tournament. Let me tell you all about it…
Over the last few weeks, we’ve been learning about hockey skills such as
- how to show close control when dribbling
- different ways in which you can pass the ball
- how to shoot at a target
- ways in which we can keep ourselves safe
Well, we had the opportunity to put these skills into practice during our tournament. Following a tense group stage, we had two play-offs to see what teams would contest the final.
In the final, neither team was able to find the upper hand. We therefore had to go to extra time. Following a dramatic finish, the two teams were still deadlocked. There was nothing for it but to have a penalty shoot-out…
The penalty shoot-out provided terrific finishes, athletic saves and agonising misses. Finally, the red team held their nerve and won the tournament. Well done everyone!
