Tournament on 29/30 August 2014
Hockey – Sullivan 1st XI miss out on goal difference
Sullivan started the season with the usual competition against Campbell, Bangor GS and Regent House. This year it was sponsored by Feherty Travel. The Sullivan squad was large and made up of Year 10s to Year 14s, giving the coaches the opportunity to assess as many players as possible.
The competition was played over a Friday and Saturday. Sullivan played their Friday match against Campbell and had a 6 – 1 victory with goals from F Gibson (2), M Jeffrey, C Carson and M Morris (2)
On Saturday morning a very much changed team played Bangor GS, this again resulted in a win, 2 – 1, with goals from F Gibson and J Matchett.
The final game was a game Sullivan had to win as Regent House had a better goal difference, by one goal. The game was very competitive and a draw was the final score, 2 all, Sullivan’s goals were scored by J Matchett and M Crookshanks.
The result meant that Regent won by one goal.
Regent player Rowan Poots also pipped Matthew Crookshanks to player of the tournament.
Thanks to Campbell College for hosting the Tournament, a great way for local schools to start off the new hockey season in a friendly and competitive manner.
