Newman College win back to back ACC Girls Hockey Challenge Metro Titles!
Congratulations to all of our participating schools in the 2019 ACC Hockey Challenge Girls Metro played at UWA Sports Park on Thursday 13 June.
The standard of hockey on display was of a very high level with the ball moving around the turf at a frenetic speed across the pool games. All girls should be very proud of the sportsmanship and spirit on display between the competing teams.
Well done to the four teams progressing into the semi finals in Newman College, Guildford Grammar, Peter Moyes ACS and St Stephens Duncraig. The semi finals were exceptional games with Newman def St Stephens 4-0. Guildford Grammar also securing a thrilling 1-0 result over Peter Moyes ACS to progress into the final.
In the Grand Final, Newman College are to be congratulated for putting in an amazing all round team performance where they were able to defend strongly as a team and then make strong attacking moves inside the attacking area and maximise the scoring opportunities. It was a top class and highly skilled game of hockey and the Guidlford Grammar girls are to also be congratulated on the strong effort and desire to never give in. Congratulations to both teams on an enthralling hockey final and to Newman College in the 3-0 victory earning them back to back titles following on from 2018.
