Super Six Shine with their Sticks!

 Six of the children from Class Three represented the school marvelously at the Daventry Schools quicksticks hockey event at Daventry Sports Park on Thursday evening. Luke, Alfie, William H, Charlie, Ashlie and Caleb led Staverton to 5th place (from 9) in the competition, only conceding 6 goals in the whole tournament. 

They started in great style, beating Boughton 4-0 in the opening game, and 1-0 in the second match against them in their opening pool, they defended fearlessly to allow Guilsborough only a pair of 1-0 victories - Guilsborough would eventually finish as runners up.

In the second stage, Staverton were hampered by two late goals, the first against Overstone denied them a worthy draw, instead they were defeated 2-1, before another late goal against The Abbey saw them pegged back to 2-2.

Well done to our 6 hockey superstars, who managed to hold their own against much larger and more experienced schools. Hopefully, we will be taking part in more tournaments in the future!
