Team: Freddie (C), Finlay, Kieran, Owain, Bobby, Millie, Tilly, Mea, Grace and Kelsey.
On Thursday, we went to Poltair for the Cornwall Games Hockey Tournament. The team were nervous to begin with as they had never played on a pitch of that size before. Their nervous start was soon overcome with amazing team work and technique. There were some tricky teams to play against, some that even train every week, but they kept their heads up the whole way through (even when it was pouring down with rain). We had some fantastic goals from Freddie, Bobby, Finlay, Owain and Millie. Unfortunately, we didn’t quite get through to the next stage of the Cornwall Games. Player of the tournament go to Finlay.
The scores were as follows:
Carclaze 6 – 0 Mount Charles
Pondhu 3 – 1 Mount Charles
St. Mewan 1- 4 Mount Charles
Bishop Bronescombe 6 – 0 Mount Charles
Charlestown 7 – 0 Mount Charles
Mr Rees took the A team for a cup match at Mevagissy School. After the previous match against Sandy Hill all of the team were determined to put in a better performance. Mount Charles started the game well with shots from Riley and Kieran. Mevagissy grew into the game and Freddie had to make some important saves. With 7 minutes gone a cross from Riley made it to Rodrigo who slotted the ball home. 1-0 to Mount Charles. The lead didn’t last long with Mevagissy quickly equalising. Half time came and the game was evenly balanced at 1-1. The second half started and Mount Charles grew in confidence. Kieran began to pull the strings from midfield, and the defense looking solid. 5 minutes into the second half Kieran picked up the ball on the edge of the box and placed an accurate shot into the top corner. 2-1 to Mount Charles. The Mevagissy heads dropped and great work from George, created a chance for Rodrigo to score his second and win the game for Mount Charles. 3-1 was the final score. We will now play St Stephens or BB in the next round.
Team: Freddie, Finlay, Jude, Kieran, Riley, Rodrigo, George.
Man of the Match: Riley for his tireless work and quick feet.
