THE Henley Hockey Academy entered four sides in last Sunday’s first Thames Valley Mini U8 tournament at Wokingham.
The four teams of Year 2 and Year 3 age group players made up the Antelopes, Bears, Cheetahs and Dolphins.
The Antelopes won all four of their games thanks to the prolific pairing of Mia Moore and Sam Phillips, the midfield tenacity of Anna McLoughlin and Ela Chamberlain, and the defensive solidity of Lucy Herbert and Alicia Bennett.
The Bears battled tirelessly against strong opposition, managing to win three of their four games. Goals came from Kirsten Botha, Henry Roseff and Adam Herbert, with good support from Charlotte Ashby, Annie Steele and Rowena Hems, who tackled well and showed great teamwork.
