Team Bath Buccaneers' girls back in national hockey finals
Team Bath Buccaneers’ under-16 girls booked their place in the national finals of the EH Cup for the second year running with a win and two draws over the weekend.
They opened the regional round with a well-earned 1-1 draw against Havant, Ellie Lyne sweeping home a deserved equaliser from close-range following the breakdown of a penalty corner.
She also scored twice at the end of a frustrating first half against Ashmoor to set up an ultimately convincing 7-0 win, with Gabriella Chapman (2), Lizzie Mayo and Holly Jackson also on the scoresheet.
That meant Buccs needed a win against Wycombe to progress and they did so thanks to their performance of the season, capped by an emphatic Lyne finish from a superb move involving Olivia Allin, Susie Barnes and Holly Jackson.
