Perse hockey team crowned county champions
2 Oct 2019
The Perse girls’ U12 hockey team has followed in the footsteps of the U14 side by being crowned Cambridgeshire schools champions.
The U14 side won the county title at Wilberforce Road last week and the U12 girls came up trumps at the same venue. Impressively, they remained unbeaten and did not concede a goal throughout the round-robin competition.
They got under way with a goalless draw against the Stephen Perse Foundation before beating St Faith’s School 2-0 with goals from Ianthe Carr and Rosabel Clarke. A 3-0 victory over King’s Ely followed thanks to two strikes from Willow Wallman and one from Verity Valentine.
The Perse won each of their three remaining matches 2-0. Verity Valentine and Ianthe Carr scored against Joyce Frankland Academy Newport and Isabel Fleming and Ianthe Carr netted against Saffron Walden County High School, while Ianthe Carr and Verity Valentine were on target against Kimbolton School.
They will now go on to play in the regional finals on 6 November.
