OSH mixed teams enjoyed an excellent afternoon at the Wolverhampton Grammar School Mixed 7s Tournament. For the first time, OSH fielded two sides, with both up against tough opponents from the start. OSH B team were eliminated in the group stages with several really close games against WGS, King Edward VI College, Shrewsbury Sixth Form College and King Edward VI Five Ways. Nikita Trehan, Deepika Khali and Hannah Sharkey defended resolutely throughout and with Jerome Sanghera back from injury, the side absorbed huge amounts of pressure.
OSH As had Lizzie Smyllie, Hannah Gill and Jen Law teamed up with Saad Qadri, Fergus Andersen, Ivan Chan and Tyler Davis. Wins against King Edward VI Five Ways, WGS and Shrewsbury School took the side through to the semi-finals, but it was not to be OSH’s day. Level at full time and at the end of a penalty shoot-out, only a sudden death shoot-out could defeat our valiant team 5-6. It was a great conclusion to a successful and hugely enjoyable hockey season at OSH.
