Year 5/6 Mini Hockey Tournament

The second Gateshead School Sport Partnership Year 5/6 Mini Hockey tournament took place at Whickham School and Sports  College on 6/3/14. 18 teams took part from 9 primary schools (Front Street, Emmaville, St Mary’s, Fellside, Harlow Green, Rowlands Gill, Portobello, Lingey House and Winlaton West Lane). All of the teams showed a fantastic display of ability, this was all captured in what could only be described as a beautiful summer’s day.


The 18 teams were split into four leagues. 2 Leagues consisted of five teams and two Leagues consisted of four teams. Each team played everyone in their group once. The winner from each League qualified to the Gateshead Finals on the 12/3/14.


We had an unbelievable 3 way tie in League 4 between Harlow Green, Fellside (B) and Portobello (A). Teams could not be separated after all correct procedures were taken. This is highly unheard of however all of the teams qualify for the Gateshead Finals!


All of the 18 teams that participated showed fantastic sportsmanship and fair play, however St Mary’s and Front Street (B) shone and they both received Respect Awards.


The teams who won their respected leagues and qualified for the Gateshead Finals were; Portobello (A), Fellside (B), Harlow Green, Fellside (A), Portobello (B), Front Street (B).
