Hockey

Marjon Hockey Tournament

 

On Thursday 6th July, some of our Key Stage 2 children attended a hockey festival at Marjon. They took part in an individual skills challenge before playing in competitive games against other schools. The group stage games were closely fought and Prince Rock won 2, drew 1 and lost 2 of their games. Unfortunately, despite super teamwork and perseverance, they lost their first knockout game 1-0 in a very close game. The children represented our school brilliantly throughout the tournament and skills sessions.

 

Lipson Hockey Tournament

 

On Thursday 25th April, thirteen of our children attended the Lipson Family Hockey Festival. As always, the children were exceptionally well behaved and represented the school brilliantly.

 

 

Here is an overview of the event from the organiser:

 

This evening saw six schools from across Plymouth attend the Lipson Family Hockey Festival. Due to numbers, the teams were allocated groups which meant two games were being played at the same time. Salisbury Road, Montpelier, Prince Rock B and Compton A were in Group A and Laira Green, Prince Rock A, Compton B and High View were in Group B. Throughout the tournament the quality of hockey being played was amazing. The sportsmanship of every player was exceptional also, with every team shaking hands at the end of the games. Some schools even gave three cheers!. The scoring allowed for every team to gain points. A win was worth 5, a draw was worth 2 and a loss was worth 1. A slight change was made to the fixtures list, with the winners from both groups playing each other and the runners up from both groups playing one another.  This job was given to the two JSLA students who did well for their first time. Other JSLA students supported the event, with some officiating, time keeping, keeping score and supporting the teams who were waiting to play. Final results were as follows:

 

Group A                                           Group B

4th Prince Rock B                               4th Laira Green

3rd Salisbury Road A                          3rd High View

    2nd Montpelier                                  2nd Prince Rock A

1st Compton A                                   1st Compton B

 

So in the runners up game Montpelier played against Prince Rock A. This was a close game with goals being scored in the last 4 minutes. The winner of this game, and festival runners up were Montpelier. In the winners game it was a whole school derby with Compton A v Compton B. Again this was a great game to watch, but after the final whistle had been blown, the result was a draw.  

 

Overall a good event that was made even better with the glorious weather that we had. Thank you to all the students that attended and their teachers. Without them this event would not be what it is. Thank you to the supporters that came along and to the JSLA students who helped plan, organise and run the event. Until next year! :-)”

Quicksticks Hockey Tournament

 

On Friday 12th October 2018, Mr Young and Mrs Buss took 8 children from Year 5 and Year 6 to compete in a Quicksticks Hockey Tournament at Brickfields. The children showed excellent teamwork and ended up coming 4th in their group after playing 4 games against other schools - well done Prince Rock!

 

 

Here is an overview of the event from the organiser:

 

"It was an exceptionally windy afternoon for this year’s Quicksticks event at Brickfields; however, that didn’t stop 10 teams turning up, eager to take part in an afternoon of hockey. Storm Callum had caused a lot of teams to drop out on the day which meant there were two pools of 5 to compete meaning every team played 4 games.

 

There was some fantastic hockey on show during the afternoon in tough conditions, with plenty of goals scored as well as strong defending.

 

A huge thanks goes to Devonport High School for Boys' leaders who umpired the games on the day, please see the attached results."
