Secondary Interhouse hockey

23rd March 2024

This week has seen some exciting games of hockey, some fantastic individual play and some exciting team performances. The primary event was very successful, with excellent play and performances. Friday’s secondary event continued the theme. In the first game Kifaru lit up the pitch with some excellent performances. Two goals from Fidel N and one each for Alexander and Imani meant that Kifaru raced to a four goal lead. Chui battled hard with Poul and Natalie running hard and challenging hard for the ball. In the second half the game was much more even, with Chui making multiple chances to score with Bradley proving equal to them. As the second half progressed Chui continued to press forward and Kifaru took advantage with Max scoring one excellent break away goal, quickly followed by another, and Matis rounding off the scoring as Kifaru ran away with it in the end. In the next fixture the Simba team were looking forward to the fixture. They pushed forward from the start with Denis and Aiden combining very well and the Kifaru goal coming under a great deal of pressure. Bradley was pushed hard but was equal to all that was thrown at him, making multiple strong saves. Kifaru then, after soaking up the pressure burst forward and again scored on the break, with first Imani then Alex scoring to give Kifaru a two goal lead. In the second half Simba again pushed forwards with some strong play from Ernst, Aiden and Denis the Kifaru goal was again peppered. As the game continued Kifaru grew into the half. And Fidel N scored another break away goal. This settled the game and meant that Kifaru had an unassailable lead.

The final game was another cracking affair. The first half was a very good battle, with both goalkeepers making saves, Lilly-May fending one off with her pads and Mohamed, in goal, kicking a few away with his feet. With little more than a minute left in the half, Denis hit a long ball and Alba managed to steer it into the goal meaning it was one nil at half time. The second half continued in a similar vein. Chui and Simba exchanged attacks, with many good opportunities for both teams. Denis, Alba and Sammy all scored for Simba, who eventually took the game and second place in the event.

Overall the event was very successful, with all of the students taking part with a very inclusive and positive manner. The camaraderie and joy shown and the support for each other was a joy to witness. A big thank you to the staff that supported their houses and helped cheer them on!

As always a massive thank you to Ms Barasa for her support and Nurse Roda.
