This weekend New College Worcester entered 2 teams into the final novice tournament of the season in Reading. The teams consisted of New College Wolves (Grace, Harvey, Harmony and Luke) and New College Warriors (Ada, Sophia, Tobias and Thomas). The Wolves had previously won both novice tournaments and were looking to finish the season strong with their undefeated record. Throughout the day, both teams played fantastically, having the Wolves win all 3 of their group games, including a 14-5 win against Birmingham and a 10-2 win against Winchester.

The final game was the decider for 1st/2nd position and the Wolves had long rivals RNC Academy to beat.

They began strong, leading the first half 3-0 but then RNC came back finishing the game with a 3-3 draw. They headed into overtime (golden goal) where sadly for NCW, RNC picked up the win.

Nonetheless, the Wolves and Warriors still played brilliantly and New College Wolves have been crowned Novice Region B Champions with an astonishing 31 points, 11 points ahead of runners up Croysutt Cubs.

Harvey was second highest goal scorer with 40, Luke was third with 34. Ada was the joint highest female goal scorer with 19.
