Team Bath Buccaneers' hockey contests won by Cheltenham and St Stephens A
The under-9s' junior hockey season came to an exciting close on Sunday when the University of Bath Sports Training Village staged the annual Cup and Plate competition.
Eight teams, including newcomers West Chinnock and Cheltenham, took part in the Cup competition and the latter soon showed they were a force to be reckoned with as they strolled into the semi-finals with a 100 per cent record.
Holders St Stephens fought hard to keep hold of their title by forcing a 0-0 draw in the last four but Cheltenham were not to be denied and won 4-3 in a penalty shoot-out.
City of Bath beat league champions St Michaels 2-0 in the other semi-final but could not resist the victory charge of Cheltenham, who took the title with a 5-0 win.
