S6C continued their strong start to the season with a well-fought win against a Devizes team with some talented players. In a changed lineup from the previous game, Salisbury Hockey superstar Ben Green was given a chance in between the sticks and Dylan Gilchrist and Harry Grannell were given starts after starting on the bench in the previous game.
In the first minute of the game Reece Tanner continued his record of scoring in every appearance for college with a strong finish into the bottom corner. Reece scored again in the first 10 minutes after a whipped corner from captain Sam Webb. Devizes came back into the game after some miscommunication at the back and a dominant 15 minutes from their midfield, 2-2. S6C took the lead again after a pin point free kick from Sam Webb (which can be found on the new S6C sport instagram account @sport_s6c). Devizes equalised again to take the game to 3-3 before Reece sealed his hat trick to go in at half time with a 4-3 lead.
The second half was a one sided affair with the game finishing 6-3. The goals came once again from Reece Tanner and Sam Webb. Highlights from this half included Ben Green catching every ball in a dominant display, and some outrageous tekkerz from impact sub and fan-favourite Haydyn Waters. S6C will have to wait until after christmas for their next fixtures with tough games coming up against Bishops Wordsworth and the Commonwealth School. This game also saw S6C sporting a new puma match kit sponsored by Deliveroo.

The college got off to winning ways in their first season in the Wiltshire Schools u18 Cup, left back Tom Halsey produced a man of the match performance at Bishopdown.
S6C tried to assert their dominance early on by playing a passing game, with James Collins and Sam Webb getting lots of touches early on! S6C took a 2 goal lead after a cool finish from Reece Tanner and a header from defender Lewis Woodhead. Matravers were allowed back into the game after a long range effort from the Matravers captain. Reece scored again to take a 3-1 lead at half time.
The lads came out a lot stronger after half time and killed the game early into the second half with goals from Evan Clem and team captain Sam Webb. Year 12 debutant Fraser Hicks grabbed a goal from inside the 6 yard box before Lewis rounded off the scoring with another header. The boys are very optimistic about the season ahead.
Sport students took a trip to the University of Bath last month to complete some fitness testing. They also took part in a speed for sport session and strength and conditioning with Superleague Netball player Kim Commane. Students got a tour of the world class sport facilities at the university and an insight into studying sport at higher education.
