Ben Tyler 14th Nov, 2019

CRESCENT School’s under-11 mixed hockey team returned from the Nottingham Hockey Centre victorious after being crowned ISA Midlands champions.

Taking part in the seven-a-side tournament against nine other teams from the region, Crescent started their title bid with several convincing victories in the first-round group stage, beating Salterford House School 3-0, Twycross House School 8-0 and Dixie Grammar School 4-0.

After qualifying for the second-round stage, the team went up against four other opponents in a round-robin format, comfortably sweeping aside Stafford Prep School 1-0, Birchfield 2-0 and Old Vicarage 2-0.

Crescent then disposed of Dixie Grammar School 6-0 in their final match, ensuring that they lifted the title without conceding a single goal throughout the tournament.

Commenting on the success, teaching assistant Sally Dowling said: “It was a great day, the team were amazing.

“They played a super game, kept hold of the ball, passed confidently and were just on fire – we are incredibly proud of them all.”
