High Sheriff Hockey Festival

The 3rd element of the High Sheriff’s Sporting Challenge was played out on Thursday 24th May at Oxford Hawks Hockey Club at Banbury Road North in Oxford on a wonderful summers evening.

More one handed hockey from Dematic..spot the bloodied knees too!

After a round robin style league and quarter finals, the semi finals saw Polar Ventures v Immuncore and Nielsen v Carter Jonas.  Polar just edged the game after a sudden death shoot out whilst the youth of Carter Jonas ( including numerous ringers) succumbed to Nielsen.  In a tense final Polar came out 1-0 winners with Nielsen missing in the closing minutes.
