The Downs are wonders in Wales
7:00pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Sport
THE girls’ hockey team from The Downs School in Malvern returned triumphant from a regional tournament in Wales.
On a lovely autumn morning, the hockey staff and the players set off for Monmouth for the annual Despontin Trophy tournament.
The day started with an ordinary performance against HMSG and 0-0 result, but an improved showing against The Elms saw a well-earned 0-0 draw.
The Downs then played St Johns on the Hill, traditionally hard and physical opposition, and the Malvern girls really shone in this match with a superb 1-0 win. Llandaff were a potential banana skin on the route through the tournament, but some nice and simple hockey would then lead to a resounding 5-0 victory.
This meant The Downs needed a win against Abberley, who were unbeaten throughout the day, if they were to win the tournament.
The Downs girls dominated the whole game and a great move down the right and a calm finish in the last minute gave the girls a great win.
