Cheshire and Warrington hockey finals

On Thursday 16th March our fantastic hockey team represented Macclesfield in the Level 3 finals competition. This event was a culmination of local and regional qualifiers. This meant that today it was the best of the best competing. After a slow start, losing the opening two goals by a one goal margin, the team kicked into gear and recorded a comprehensive 4-1 win against a school from Crewe. They then followed this with a draw (in a game they should have won). Unfortunately the final three group games ended in narrow defeats, which meant that on this occasion we were unable to progress further. The standard of hockey was extremely high and as a team we played really well. The team can be proud of the journey it has been on and consider themselves winners for making it all the way to this elite level of competition.
