First XI Hockey Storm to Cup Fourth Round
Stamford School's First XI Hockey team has enjoyed a strong run in the National Cup of late with impressive wins both home and away.
The first round of the cup pitted the team against local rivals Uppingham School. A brilliant second half from Stamford saw the side emerge 4-1 victors, after a feisty affair had been level at half time.
A much fancied Trent College, were the sides second round opponents. A flying start from Stamford saw them fly into a two nil lead. Soon the quality of the Trent College team started to show and Stamford found themselves 5-4 down with two minutes to play. However inspired play by Captain Arthur Franklin resulted in two goals in two minutes giving Stamford the win.
Following on from the heroics at Trent College, the side then headed to Worksop College on a Tuesday night. The team played fantastically well, controlling the tie throughout. Two goals from sports scholar Joe Rogers put the tie to bed. The side will now enjoy a home tie in the fourth round which will either be against Rugby School or current National Champions Repton School.
