HENLEY U8s fielded four sides at the final Thames Valley minis tournament at Reading Hockey Club on Sunday against the host team and opposition from Marlow, Wokingham, Phoenix and Slough.
Top performing team on the morning were the Henley Pumas who won three games and drew one. Lachlan Nye continued his goal-scoring run netting five times on the day through good individual play.
Laura McLouglin and Georgia Moore put in fine performances in defence to ensure that the Pumas conceded no goals. With Luella Coffey, Caitlin Swinburn and Thomas Harding putting in strong tackles in midfield, Fergus Heggie was able to threaten in attack to create opportunities on goal. The Henley Lions had a good set of results, winning two, drawing one and losing one. Ben Price and Annabel Tanner scored a goal each as the Lions showed good passing play through Charlie Rolestone, Anya Marston and Abi Botterill.
The Henley Tigers put in a strong performance but were just not able to score as they drew one game and lost three.
Connor Botha put in a fine defensive performance while Molly Rosi worked hard in midfield to minimise the goals conceded. The Henley Cougars secured two draws and two losses with Nonnie Luke scoring the only goal for the team. Max Jones worked hard in defence to support Finlay Reid, Lucy Blomfield and Starr Cheesman in midfield. Katy Spatcher performed well on her debut.
