Hall Cross hosted the Y8 Doncaster tournament this week. Our Y8 team, including captain Elina, Kenzie, Sharmaine, Freya, Anoushka, Lucie and Mia, are undefeated champions from Y7. They had set the bar high for themselves and were ready to play their best in all games. They won every game, beating STW A&B teams 12-1 and 13-0 respectively, Hayfield 8-2, Trinity 16-0 and Hungerhill 7-1. They scored maximum points to be victorious and maintain their title of Doncaster Champions! Some great goals were scored by Sharmaine and Kenzie, with support from Lucie and Anoushka. Mia was fantastic as GK, with Freya defending well. Elina captained her team well, with everyone demonstrating advanced skills throughout the games! Well done, girls.


The U16 boys competed in the North East final National Schools’ Hockey Tournament this week. They previously won the Yorkshire finals, beating Harrogate 4-0 uin the final to qualify for the NE semi-finals. They then beat Yarm School 5-3 to qualify for these finals. They played Eaglescliffe in a tough game. The boys won 4-0, with goals from Luke Singh, George Fisher and Jack Stoves (x2), and now qualify for the National finals in Reading! We wish the boys the best of luck. It’s 11 years since Hall Cross qualified for these finals!


The U15 girls travelled to Whitcliffe Mount for their first match this week. They played a team of all Y10’s when they were only a team of Y8’s and 9’s themselves! They drew 10-10, still making them undefeated!

The U13 and U15 girls played a match against Hill House at half time at the Doncaster Knights vs Coventry match. The U13’s won 30-10 and U15’s won 20-10! It was such a great experience for the girls and they remain victorious.

Running World Cup

Across the last couple of weeks, the Y7’s have been competing in the running world cup at the Keepmoat athletics track. It’s a world wide initiative set up by Usain Bolt to encourage more people ti participate in running. The challenge was to complete 3km in 30 minutes. Students were split into groups in order to complete as many laps of the track, in continuous relay form, in the 30 minute time limit. All the students worked well and some outstanding effort was demonstrated. The top performers, completing 25 laps, were Olivia, Talia, Liwia and Amelia! Well done, girls!


Y7 and Y8 played against Wath on Monday. Y7 lost 5-2 and Y8, despite leading 2-0 at half time, lost 4-3.

Y7,8,9&10 played against Campsmount on Wednesday. Y8 and Y10 won 3-0 and 1-0 retrospectively. Y10 played really well, with their best performance of the season. They deserved to score more goals, but a victory was enough. Y9 lost 1-0 in a close game.
