Perse Triumph in Dutch Rematch
26 Feb 2013
Last weekend the 1st XI girls hockey team played Ypenberg Hockey Club U17, who are a Dutch team touring for the weekend.
The Perse team visited them as part of the tour to Holland in September 2012, and they wanted to come over for a rematch! The girls had not played hockey since the Michaelmas term, so were a little apprehensive going into the match, as it was a thrilling draw last time.
However, they played some excellent hockey and as the game progressed the Perse fitness and skill level outdid the Dutch side as they scored twice in the second half to win 2-0.
The Dutch team enjoyed our hospitality, which included a curry night in the pupil cafe as well as being wowed at the Charity Cabaret. They went on to take Cambridgeshire U17 the next day.
