Bronze Medal for U13 Panthers

The U13 Panthers came away with a Bronze medal at the 2015 U13 Festival held in Nottingham.

Having won all their group games, West Scotland Cubs 8-0, North East 2-1, and South Wales 7-0 and 4-0, they came up against Tensworth, North West, in the Semi Final. In a gripping first half it was end to end hockey and 0-0 at half time. But 10 minutes into the 2nd half Tensworth scored, the boys couldn’t recover and eventually went down 4-0.

So to the 3rd/4th playoff, once again against North East. The quality of the hockey both teams played defied belief for such young players. At 1-1, with 5 minutes to go, penalty shuffles loomed, but Niklas Siebold, picked up a through ball, turned and smashed a reverse stick shot into the bottom corner. The boys and coaches were delighted to come home with a bronze medal.

 

2011 Winning Panthers Team

The U13 winning Panthers team from 2011, the Panthers won all their group games, beat the North East in the semi final on penalty strokes, then beating Ireland 2-1 in the final.
