Martongate Primary School’s Under 11 Boys team represented the East Riding of Yorkshire in the Humberside County round of the National Mini In2Hockey Championships. They travelled to Hymers School, Hull on Wednesday 1st February 2017.
During the evening they played three matches, the first one against Nafferton Primary School. Having been beaten by them in the first round the team were up to make amends. The balance of play was very even but a lapse in concentration allowed the Nafferton forwards through and gave Coby Scotter in goal no chance. Nafferton were then on the front foot and took advantage scoring another two. Martongate continued to play hard and they were rewarded when Charlie De’ath scored resulting in a final score of 3-1
The next opposition were Hymers School. The team continued with the determination they had finished off with in the first match. Martongate pressed Hymers into their defensive half of the pitch. But unfortunately were not able to make the most of their chances. In the second half they eventually got their reward with an unselfish pass by Toby Gee to allow Charlie De’ath to score with an unstoppable strike.
The third and final game of the evening was against Oldfleet Primary School. The team knew that they had to win this match to be safe in the knowledge that they would qualify in the next round. The teamwork, communication and effort was rewarded with a 4-1 victory, a further 3 goals from Charlie De’ath and one from Harvey Asquith.
They now go on to play in the North East of England finals in March
