Southern Area Quick Sticks Hockey Finals

March 14 @ 3:45 pm - 5:30 pm

Steyning took two teams to the Southern Area Quicksticks Hockey Finals held at The Angmering School on a very cold evening. This competition enables the winning team to qualify for the All Sussex Finals, which are part of the Olympic Legacy. Unfortunately over the years this magnificent school event has been whittled down and now only one team qualifies, not two, as before.
Steyning 1 started off with four wins and a draw whereas Steyning 2 began slowly losing three and winning one. Both teams played each other in the fourth game and that, as you can imagine, was interesting to watch, especially the dramatic own goal, which I credited to Anna Mallock to save someone's blushes. That person remains unnamed, but it did cause massive fits of laughter.
Steyning 1 then lost two tight games, both decided by controversial decisions, but that is life. Steyning 2 then gained two wins to boost their overall total.
So down to the last game against Georgia Gardens. No one knew what the other teams had been achieving so I put my three trusty girls onto pitch with a solitary boy to see what would happen. Well what a game. We ended up winning 7 - 1 with a hat trick from Anna Mallock, two from Grace Dorrington and one each from Leo Glass and Paddy Joyce.
As we gathered for the results, our heads were a bit low as we had lost two games, but as the results unfolded our Steyning 1 were not mentioned. In the end we finished second, which is a great result, but all the more annoying because now only one team represents our Area in the All Sussex Finals. Each player this year has performed brilliantly and this was a great way to finish our season of hockey. Congratulations to everyone involved.
