The Belfast Telegraph Senior Schools Cup Final - Sullivan Upper v Banbridge at Lisnagarvey Hockey Club. Sullivan players celebrate at the end of the game. Presseye

Katie McKee became one of the youngest ever to win the Player of the Match award in a Belfast Telegraph Senior Schools' Cup final… and it was an honour that took away some of the disappointment of losing to Sullivan Upper in the decider.

Katie turned 15 just four months ago and for someone so young she shone head and shoulders above players up to two years her senior.

It's perhaps no surprise that the Bann midfielder has a strong skills set already, as there is a strong hockey pedigree running through her family.

Parents John and Glenda were both seasoned internationals in the past, and Katie's older sister Lucy and brother Jonny are already starring in Ireland under-age teams.

"I've mixed emotions at the moment," said the teenager as the presentations were being made after the final.

"I'm disappointed at losing, as I thought things didn't go as well as we would have liked, but it's nice to feel that I was chosen as player of the game.

"The good thing is that I, and several others in the team, have another few years before leaving school, so maybe we can get back into another final soon."

Academy captain Emma Quinn spoke well of her team despite the defeat.

"I'm so proud of them all," she said. "The girls worked hard to get to the final and our coaches helped us so much.

"It's usually the boys at the school who do so well at the hockey, but now we have shown that the girls can get in the mix too."

Those words were echoed by her coach Neil Madeley, who feels that the girls will benefit from the experience.

"They will have enjoyed the atmosphere and the experience of representing their school in an Ulster final, and the after-match dinner that is being provided for them," he said.

While there was disappointment in the Banbridge camp, there were joyous scenes with the Sullivan girls, who coach Sarah Hutchinson spoke highly of after the game.

"It's absolutely amazing, I can hardly believe it," she said.

"At the start of the year we had no reason to think about reaching a cup final but as the season progressed we began to see the potential in the girls.

"They worked so hard and deserved to win, although it was a tight game throughout.

"There was a lot of pressure on our captain, Zara Malseed, because of all the hat-tricks she had scored in the previous rounds.

"She might not have got another hat-trick, but she still played her part - it was her goal that got us back in the game."

Zara, though, didn't worry about not getting a hat-trick in the final to create what would have been a record.

"It's great to score goals but in the end it doesn't matter who gets them as long as you win," she said.

"We weren't worried when we went a goal down, because we came from behind in the semi-final too."
