U12 Boys make hard work of Reigate Tournament HC Knole Park’s U12 Boys traveled to Reigate to play in their next tournament of the season. Trouble with travel logistics and a slow start saw them lose to a strong East Grinstead side 0-3. A marginally improved performance against Reigate stemmed the tide and they recorded a 0-0 draw. In an improved performance against EG, the team lost 3-4 with goals from Player of the Tournament Mack Copp (2) and Hudson Roberts, before beating Reigate 2-0 to finish 2nd overall. Goals in the final match were scored by Harry Lewis and James Parker.
U14B Girls enjoy a superb match against East Grinstead HC Knole Park’s U14B Girls produced a superb performance to win their third match of the season and move back up to second in the league. Player of the Match Mackenzie Ward completed a first half hat-trick in an inspired performance. Her first goal was an exquisite strike from the top of the D into the top corner of the goal! The second half was an even better performance as the girls continued to push for more goals. Amber Croll, Belle Kramer, Summer Knight-Thompson and Mackenzie with her fourth goal completed the scoring for HC Knole Park’s U14s. A late goal for EG was a deserved consolation goal for the visiting team. The girls face Tunbridge Wells in their last match before Christmas.
U14A Boys struggle to finish their chances in a bizarre match! HC Knole Park’s U14 Boys lost 3-4 to Bromley and Beckenham HC. In a bottom of the league clash the team knew that this was a great chance to great three points and hopefully spring their season into action. The team completely dominated the match from start to finish, however “finish” was the operative word! Despite numerous opportunities the boys couldn’t ever quite get the lead that their possession, territory or chances assumed they might! BromBeck stormed into a two goal lead before half-time and despite a much improved second half with goals from Player of the Match Charlie Harrison (2) and George Glen the team were always behind before running out of time to equalise. Despite the loss, the boys can be very pleased with their progress so far this season. Their technical quality was superb and to create that many chances is something to be very encouraged about. Well done to all involved. Next week the team host Guildford in the England Hockey Cup.
