Triumph at the Quiksticks Hockey!
New Season of School Sport 2022/23
Quicksticks Hockey at Lynnsport for years 3&4
This was our first sporting event of the school year, it comprised of a fun skills festival and a competition both were games against other schools. In the festival it was about learning the game and its skills without the pressure of score taking. Whilst the competition was more about using our skills to try and win matches, scores were taken and a semi-final and final took place.
The festival team had a great time and played many schools, working hard as a team. Mrs Collison said they listened and worked brilliantly as a team.

The remaining 6 children took part in the competition where 8 teams were placed in 2 pools and played each other, 12 minute matches with 2 players substituting every 4 minutes, 4 on the pitch at a time. The winners playing the runners up, of the other pool as a semi-final, then the winners of those games playing each other in the final. We were pitted against Glebe House, Terrington St Clement, and St Germans. The final placings were extremely close but we won our first match against Glebe 3-1, drew 3-3 against St Germans and then drew again 0-0 against Terrrington. As Terrington and St Germans both lost a match it meant we had won with St Germans finishing in 2nd place. Our next match was against St Marthas, we came out fighting and played superbly winning by 4. The children had fought very hard and produced some great play which was commented on by several people. The final was against St Germans who had beaten Dersingham, could we go one better? I didn’t realise how long 4 minutes was when you are leading 3-2. It was a fantastic match and both teams deserved to win as they played their hearts out! They were so pleased, saying do we really get that trophy?
