Stockport in the U18 Girls' School Championships in 2015 at Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre

U18 National Schools Championships for Girls

In the Girls’ U18s National Schools Championships Stockport and Cranleigh sit top of their respective pools at the end of day one on Olympic Park, however following a floodlight failure the final two games of the day [Millfield v Repton and Grammar School at Leeds v Trent] on pitch two had to be postponed until 0845 tomorrow morning.

Pool E
Stockport produced the standout result of the day with a brilliant 2-1 win against reigning champions Repton. The Manchester side then followed that result with a convincing 8-1 victory over Framlingham. Lily Wolstenholme bagged four goals for her side, including a hat-trick against Framlington, to help seal the six points.

Millfield currently lie in second place after a 3-1 win against Framlingham in their first match of the tournament, however it’s all to play for with three more games left to play.

Pool F
Meanwhile in Pool F the day ended with Cranleigh sitting top on six points following 2-0 and 2-1 victories over Trent and Queen’s respectively. Charlotte Calnan was Cranleigh’s hero as she scored either side of half time to give her side a 2-1 victory over Queen’s in the final match of the day.

After drawing with Queen’s in their first match Grammar School at Leeds will be eager to get their second match played tomorrow morning against Trent after it was postponed due to a floodlight failure on pitch two. A victory over Trent would see the Yorkshire side set up a must win contest against current table toppers Cranleigh in the last group match of the day.
