Girls’ hockey stars past and present turned out for a special fixture over Rydal Penrhos’ annual Founders’ Weekend celebration.
A strong Old Girls’ team returned to the school to take on its First XI for the Natalie Kate Moss Trophy on Saturday, September 15, which saw a big crowd descend on the Astro to witness the contest.
The encounter eventually went the way of the returning Old Girls’ for a third successive year thanks in no small part to the efforts of former Head Girl and Welsh international Hannah Cashell, who demonstrated her enormous talent to score four times during another accomplished display from the University of Newcastle student.
Sister Sophie Cashell was also on target during their victory, but the Rydal Penrhos side worked incredibly hard against their accomplished opponents, who had all played in National Finals during their time at the school.
Goalkeeper Tallulah Batley produced a number of superb stops throughout the clash, with Deputy Head Girl Nuria Montolio, Head Girl Gowri Pradeep and captain Lucy Carnall all performing well during the game.
Head of Girls’ Games Nicky Head, said: “As always, the Old Girls’ were able to gather their strongest players, all of whom played a National Hockey final.
"Our First XI played exceptionally well, working hard throughout the game. Overall, it was a very pleasing performance by all concerned, but the Old Girls' retain the cup for another year.”
