Junior Mixed Summer 7s - Wrap for Week 3

Our annual Junior Mixed Summer 7s Tournament started on 22nd April.  The tournament is in its tenth year and it combines good hockey in a really fun but competitive environment.  It is a great way for our young girls and boys to give their hockey a boost and we often see dramatic improvements in skill levels over the duration of the tournament.  Six teams will battle it out and the theme this year is the 'winter olympics' - finals day is 24th June 2018.   All teams have been allocated a senior manager who is assisted by junior coaches, all of whom will have played in this tournament in the past.  Umpires are provided by all clubs over the weeks of the tournament and it is a fantastic event which embraces everyone at Jersey Hockey.

Here is the latest round up of matches after session 3.

Wrap for Week 4:

 

  • In the Icy Pool, all teams beat each other and just 1 goal decided the final positions as the tiebreaker.  Snowboarders freerode to the top, whilst the Skeletons found some form for second with the Curlers stone last.

 

  • In the Mountain Pool, those pesky ‘Skaters sped to the top again – driving everyone else round the bend. Skiers raced past the Bobsleighers, whose week went downhill – fast!  

 

Head-to-head playoffs:

 

  • Tight game in the top match as the Speed Skaters (9 OP) sprinted past the Snowboarders (7) who lost their edge

 

  • The 3rd/4th match this week saw a late goal grab the 6 Olympic Points for the Skiers, who wiped out the marauding Skeletons (4).

 

  • The Curlers (3 OP) put on a polished performance and swept past the Bobsleighers (1), whose ‘cool runners’ made no impact today.

As a reminder, until Finals Day, the only strategy is to get into the top three – still all to play for.
