First we warmed up by taking shots at Freddie, who was in goal. This was great fun! Then we watched Radwinter play before playing against them. After that we played Stebbing, and then Walden. Finally, we played Rickling. Following a break we moved into the semi-final. We had to play Radwinter again but we lost 5-0. Then we lost 3-0 against Stebbing. All in all, we all had a great time and from the tournament we learnt to work as a team.
