Oakham School’s U18 Girls Hockey team have retained their county championship title for an impressive sixth year running.
Oakham’s 1st XI won three of their four games in order to retain the County Cup. They won convincingly against Welbeck College (4-0), local rivals Uppingham (3-0), and against the tournament hosts Leicester Grammar (2-0). The last game of the tournament, against Loughborough High School, was less straightforward, resulting in a 2-1 win for Loughborough.
Oakham’s attacking style was stopped by determined defending, but they were still the clear winner thanks to their better goal difference.
