Boarding News – Ice Hockey!
On 23rd January, a group of boarding staff and pupils enjoyed a Saturday night trip to watch the Nottingham Panthers play Manchester Storm. With many of the group having not watched Ice Hockey before, it was interesting to see them gradually get involved with the lively atmosphere. The game didn’t disappoint with the Panthers winning the game 4 – 0. The only missing factor was a fight or two during the game to really show off a proper game of Ice Hockey, something that most wouldn’t understand! (The fact that players are allowed to fight is something that I am sure will surprise most who watch it.) There was, however, plenty of big hits on show which showed just how physical and enthralling the game can be. This was the first visit to the Ice hockey for the boarders but I am sure it won’t be the last!
