On a blustery day on the banks of the Orwell, 11 teams arrived at Orwell Park ready to compete in the second regional qualifier of the year.
In the early matches, honours were even with a number of draws being recorded; however, once the girls relaxed, the goals soon started to flow.
At the end of the group stages, Norwich, OBH, Orwell Park, Wellingborough, Stephen Perse, Witham Hall, The Abbey and Kingshott all moved through to the quarter finals. From these matches, Norwich, OBH, Stephen Perse and Witham Hall progressed to the semi finals. In two close semi finals, Witham Hall prevailed over OBH on penalty shuffles and Stephen Perse were victorious over Norwich, to both book their places at Millfield in November. Witham Hall went on to win the final with Norwich earning third place with a victory over OBH.
Another great day of hockey was enjoyed by all and, once again, the standard of play was fantastic and bodes well for a the National Finals.
1st - Witham Hall (Qualify for Nationals)
2nd - Stephen Perse (Qualify for Nationals)
3rd - Norwich
