Congratulations go to Worle Community School’s Under-16 girls’ hockey team, who became south west county champions.
Worle faced Redland Green in the first game where Desni Darch scored from two short corners. This was a tough game with goalkeeper Hannah Worley keeping a clean sheet by saving a penalty flick.
Worle played back-to back-games facing a strong Chew Valley team, where some of the players represented the county. After a scoreless first-half, the girls pushed forward and added more pressure in the D.
This resulted in gaining some short corners, which Amy Coles made sure the ball crossed the line. In the last few minutes, Worle dominated and Darch scored with a lifted shot.
The dynamic team are also to be congratulated for not conceding a goal in five years of competitions.
Players of the match were awarded to captain Orla Crabb and Desni Darch.
PE teacher, Miss Gibbins, said: “The girls have been a pleasure to coach over the five years and will be sorely missed.”
