Have your say

The King’s Lynn Roller Hockey U15 Inters team, sponsored by MKM Building Supplies and Samueljacks T-Shirt Shop, had their last game of the season at Sudbury over the weekend.

A fantastic performance sees them win the Eastern Counties League, giving them maximum points and a 100 per cent record for the season.

The team, all the same age from schools around the area, also played a round robin tournament for a place in the Eastern Counties cup final.

The first game saw Lynn start slowly, 2-1 up against Cottenham at half-time with goals from Matthew Baker and Darcy Quin-Seyki. The team picked up the pace in the second half via quick passing with Baker and Quin-Seyki adding three goals each. Jude Rowland got the ninth goal with 20 seconds remaining on the clock. Lynn won 9-1.

Next up were Sudbury. Millie Twidale converted two great shots helping Lynn to win 8-0.

Peterborough tested goalkeeper Eilidh Clague, but with her team picking up the loose balls from the saves, she kept a clean sheet. Josh Horn scored in a 7-0 win.

Last game was against Letchworth. Lynn were just too quick, going into a 14-0 lead with all the team getting on the score sheet. Letchworth conceded 13 minutes into the first half, taking Lynn into the final, which will be held on July 11 at Peterborough.

l KLRHC U11’s had their Eastern Cup finals qualifiers on Sunday in Soham and played in the second pool.

Lynn lost against Peterborough 8-1 with Ria Griffin scoring. It was a tough game, but Miles Hovell and Myer Easter formed a solid defence wall.

Against Ely 2, Joe Crawford was awarded the captaincy by Joshua Futter. Joe shone and scored a superb goal. The game was won by Lynn 8-0 (Futter 4, Ria Griffin 3).

This put Lynn into the semi-final against Letchworth who netted three goals in the first half. During the second half Futter pulled the team to 3-2 and just before the whistle blew, Griffin scored. As this was the decider for the place in the finals, the game continued with golden goal and a penalty shoot out. Keaton Vincent was making his debut as a goalkeeper and was brilliant, saving one of the shots.

Lynn lost the shoot out and their place in the finals, but they didn’t give up.
