HC Knole Park’s U12 Girls won silver at last weekend’s Kent Cup Finals and have now qualified for the South-East Finals. In a new competition format the girls from Knole Park won five of their matches and drew twice to seal second place and a place in next month’s Regional Finals. Georgie Owen and Farrah Hilden top scored in the competition with seven goals each. Elisa Hippe (4), Connie Coquelin (3), Bea Foster (2) and Liliya Dale were also on target for Knole Park.
Knole Park’s U14A Girls were in imperious form as they beat Herford HC 13-0 which keeps them top of the England Hockey Supra-League (East). Goals from Evie Smith (4), Biba Mills (4), Daisy Edwards, Isla Johnson, Lilly Holmes, Boadicea Cannon, and Ines Gascoyne-Day seeing the young Knole Park team continue their top form this season. The girls have one match remaining against Cambridge City. If they can win, they will qualify for the National League Finals.
U16A Girls also continued their good form with a thumping win against Brighton and Hove HC. The girls won 10-2 and this keeps them second in the England Hockey Supra-League (South). The goals were scored by Polly Brownlow (3), Bella Muñoz (3), Lottie Bingham (2), Alessia Turner and Phoebe Gough-Cooper.
In the Adults section the only match to survive was the Women’s 2s. Phoebe Gough-Cooper netted a double hat-trick, Polly Brownlow scored five times and Bella Muñoz four times in the 26-0 victory. This win sees HC Knole Park’s Women’s 2s crowned as Invicta Division 6 champions! An incredible first season in the league structure as they move up to Invicta Division 5 for next season. The Men’s 1st team received a last-minute walkover from Herne Bay 3rd team, whilst the Women’s 1st team had their walkover from Gore Court confirmed earlier in the week. This weekend, the U10 and U12 Boys and Girls are in action again in their mini festivals. The Men’s 1s are playing Sevenoaks, and the Women’s 1s travel to Tunbridge Wells.
