CHOSEN Hill School's Under-14 Squad will represent Gloucestershire at the Netball Regional Finals in February.

The school emerged victorious from the County Tournament held at Cheltenham Ladies College.

Due to withdrawals, the changed format saw each team play seven, six-minute matches, with the top four qualifying for the semi-finals.

Chosen Hill's first challenge was against Cheltenham College, where despite losing possession on a number of occasions, the team came away with a win.

Chosen Hill remained undefeated throughout the group stages, but their biggest challenge of the group came against Pate's Grammar School.

The result would determine who came first and second in the group, which would affect the semi-final draw.

Chosen Hill led going into the break, but Pate's came back strong in the second half and put pressure on the Chosen Hill defence.

Pate's stopped Chosen Hill from scoring in the second half, but still the team held on to qualify and book a semi final tie against Cheltenham Ladies College.

Chosen Hill were a goal down by the end of the first half, but the Churchdown-based school came back fighting through captain Ella Powell Davies, who had sustained an injury in the second half.

Powell Davies made a crucial interception which led to the equaliser.

With minutes to go Chosen Hill scored the important winner to send them to the regional finals in February.
