Thirsk U12 Girls on Fire!

1 year ago By Mike Rushmere

Report on the FIVE U12 girls teams on 12th March.

The U12 girls teams were on fire this weekend in the 5th round of the YYHL – we had quite a few selection problems before the tournament losing a number of girls across the board due to illness and injury. That meant a bit of re-jigging of the teams to make sure all the teams had just enough players. The good news was we still managed to get all 5 teams out – it is also with huge thanks to all the hockey helpers at the club who manage the teams on Sunday, Paul, Helen, Lerae and Sally – without these amazing people the girls would not be able to play.
I am delighted to report that Thirsk A, finished top of the whole league for the 5th consecutive time. The depleted B’s fought hard and managed 4th place in the A League – there was only 1 goal difference between 2nd, 3rd and 4th!

The C Team, depleted again and under the care of Helen, smashed the C League and finished top which means they get promoted to the B League – this is an absolutely fantastic achievement and that means they will be back at Weetwood with the rest of the squad for the final tournament.
The D & E Team, also depleted and playing in the G League, had a fantastic afternoon. The D Team smashed it and finished top so they get promoted to the F League. The E Team just missed out on 2nd place but it is a great effort finishing 3rd.

All in all a great weekend and shows what a great squad we have in this age group. Thanks to all the parents for their support and we are all looking forward to the last round.
