U12 Clubs YAZOO National Mini Hockey Championships

City of York girls and Canterbury boys were crowned U12 Clubs YAZOO Mini Hockey Champions on Sunday.

It was a close run thing in the girls' tournament with City of York winning on 'goals scored', finishing one goal ahead of Old Loughtonians.  City of York successfully came through the Yorkshire and North regional rounds to make it to the National Mini Hockey Championships Finals at Highfields Sports Club.

Canterbury's win in the boys' tournament wasn't quite as close but they still had to avoid defeat in their final game against Woking.  Woking needed to win to take the title but a 1-1 draw was enough for Canterbury.
