Four RGS pupils playing for Wycombe
Hockey Club , Ben Reeves, Dan Maunder, Will Needham and Josh Mardell, were part of the Wycombe U18 Boys team
which defended its National Indoor title
at the weekend. Wearing brand new kit supplied by their sponsor GPL Projects
Ltd, they won their first pool game against Harleston Magpies comfortably,6-1.
The second match, against National
League Club Beeston, was far more dramatic. It took a moment of brilliance from the captain to finally
overturn the 0-3 half-time score in the closing moments of the game.
On the Sunday morning Wycombe confirmed
their place in the semi-finals with a hard fought draw against Taunton Vale,
again coming from behind to draw 2-2.
An excellent Havant team full of England
players stood between Wycombe and the title. The team raised their game yet
again, getting the better of their opponents and as a result Havant failed to
threaten with the ever present Dan Maunder imperious in defence.
The final was to be decided by penalty
flicks. In all the tension, Mardell stepped up to score, and it was left to
Goalie Ben Reeves, the youngest player in Wycombe’s squad, to seal victory with
a great save. Wycombe were National Indoor Champions AGAIN!
