A Suffolk school’s hockey team has achieved a historic first silver medal at the national indoor finals.
The under 18s girls team at Framlingham College have been praised for a “simply stunning” performance over two days of competition.
After wins against King’s Bruton, Queen Elizabeth Cumbria and competition hosts Bromsgrove, Framlingham lost out against Cranleigh meaning the players would face Dean Close in the semi-final.
A school spokesman said the game was “nothing short of epic” and saw the team come back from 3-0 down to win on penalties and earn its place in the final for the first time in the school’s history.
Facing Cranleigh again, however, Framlignham lost 4-2 after conceding several penalty corners.
