A COLWYN Bay school’s hockey team has scooped a high profile regional tournament win.

Rydal Penrhos’s under 14 squad took their place in the field at the North Wales Championships last Monday, against a host of other school side.

They were all looking to reach the national finals.

The team began its quest for the crown with a 2-0 win over Ysgol Brynrefail, before continuing their impressive start thanks to a 3-0 triumph over Ysgol John Bright in Llandudno.

Rydal Penrhos ended the group stages in emphatic style, turning in a superb attacking display to come away with a 10-0 victory over Ysgol Dyffryn Ogwen.

This saw the home side pitted against nearby Ysgol Eirias in the semi-finals, which was a competitive affair that ended 3-1 to Rydal Penrhos.

Rydal Penrhos then came up against tournament favourites Ysgol Tywyn, and took an early lead before their opponents levelled matters just before the break.

After the interval Edward Altoft took a penalty flick and an Ethan Akroyd effort pull the hosts clear.

Despite conceding late on they managed to hold on for a memorable win and secure the North Wales title.

The final also saw an outstanding defensive display from Kosi Iwobi, and a stunning save from goalkeeper James Gilman in the closing stages also contributed significantly to their overall success.

Preparations will now begin for the Welsh Schools’ Hockey Championships later this year.

In this competition the under 14s will look to maintain the school's history of national triumphs.

The under 14 squad's members are: James Gilman, Kosi Iwobi, Jaydon Blears, Zac Roberts, Liam Farrell, Edward Altoft, Ethan Akroyd, Jonathan Osbourne, Gabriel Speakman, Laurence Richardson.
