Day 9 - Birmingham / Game 5

This morning the group headed out to the Birmingham Nature Reserve for a walk and stretch to aid in the recovery after three games in three days.
From there it was onto explore the world famous Birmingham Bull Ring Markets and shops, a highlight of which saw the group lunching at one of Jamie Oliver's restaurants.

Game 5
Girls 3-2 Win
A great all round team effort, after falling behind early in the game and absorbing significant opposition pressure.
The second half saw the girls hit their straps with great midfield pressure and probing through balls to secure a memorable win.

Boys 5-6 Loss
A frenetic opening with end to end expansive hockey, saw the boys fall a couple of goals behind early before their ball movement and pressure allowed them to claw back the deficit .
Whilst the first half was punctuated by many goals (four all at half time), the second half saw the boys score late to take a 5-4 lead, however two goals in the last two minutes saw the boys fall just short of claiming their first tour win.
