The U16s headed to Oxford Hawks to participate in the County Championships last Friday. With four games only lasting 20 minutes each it was going to be about who played the more attacking tournament hockey. With St Edward's up first, Abingdon took the lead, but failed to convert their other chances, ending the game in a draw. With Bloxham next, the boys needed to secure a win, which they did in style, playing some lovely flowing hockey.  This left Radley and MCS to play, with Radley up first the boys played well, solid in defence and dangerous in attack. Again it was another close encounter, ending in a draw. Lastly, the crunch match, MCS, Abingdon needed a win to go through, taking the initiative the boys played some attacking hockey, but were caught on the break to concede an early goal. They managed to re-group and play some good hockey, but alas the time was up. Abingdon managed to get one goal back, ending the game in another draw. So overall un-beaten, and a good performance all round. Well done to all those involved.
