In a pool of three Malvern played Oakham School in their first game. The boys defended well and started to find some connecting hockey going forwards and took the lead. Oakham pulled back level just before halftime. Malvern started the second half well and regained the lead but three late goals from Oakham ended in a 4-2 loss for the boys.
Needing a win against Rugby School in the final match to go through to the Midlands Finals the boys started strongly and took the lead through a well worked short corner. Rugby equalised before Malvern scored again. With five minutes to go Rugby made it 2-2 meaning Malvern needed goal to progress. Despite several opportunities in the dying stages, the game ended 2-2 and Rugby went through on goals scored.
A great effort from the boys who had very little preparation before the qualifier.
