Parkhall INT College Year 8 hockey team had a fun Blitz on 9th Dec. A total of 12 teams entered the blitz – Parkhall Integrated College, Slemish Integrated College, Carrick Academy, Sperrin Integrated College, Antrim Grammar, Ballyclare Secondary School, Dunclug, Larne High, Magherafelt High, Ballymoney High School, Cullybackey High School and Glengormley High. On the day Sperrin Integrated and Magherafelt High couldn’t make it.
The blitz was played in 2 groups and then winning teams from the 2 groups played a final cross-over game. The morning was beautiful, lovely bright and fresh! Everyone seemed to have a great day, no injuries were had and for some schools it was their first competitive fixtures.
During the blitz Parkhall played 4 group games and won all 4. They had strong attacking play during their first game against Dunclug College. The game ended with Parkhall winning 2:0 goals from Nagham Awdeh and Claudia Drysdale. The second match was against Ulidia which was a tight match but Parkhall came out on top with a 1:0 win with Claudia scoring her second goal of the competition. Game number three was against Larne High. Both teams had good tactics and played very well with the final score being 1:0 to Parkhall with Rebecca Adams scoring. The last game we played in the group stage was against Ballymoney High where the Parkhall side had strong attacking play with a goal scored by Claudia which put Parkhall 1:0 up and this is how the game won. All teams played well throughout the course of the day with Parkhall and Antrim Grammar facing off in the final. The final was a tight game with Antrim Grammar scoring early on in the match making it 1:0 and the game ended with Antrim Grammar winning with Parkhall as runners up.
