Thomas Deacon Academy won the Under 16 Cambridgeshire Schools County Championships in Cambridge on Saturday .
Despite losing their first group match to reigning champions Stephen Perse 8-2, the city girls bounced back to beat Neale Wade and St Bede’s and draw with St Mary’s.
That earned them a semi-final against Perse School and they edged through to the final 8-7 to clinch a rematch with Stephen Perse in the decider.
This time it was much closer.
TDA trailed by two goals for most of the game but a brilliant long shot from Georgia Southwell put them right back into the game and they won it 9-8.
TDA now go through to the East Regional Tournament on Saturday January 30 in Essex.
