A redoubled effort and a skilful final save gave Felsted their 4-3 win which saw them safely through to the final eight.
Felsted U15s followed close behind the very next day, securing their place in the quarters with a skilled win over Worth School.
Head of Felsted Hockey Loren Sherer said: “The girls showed a tremendous amount of character and focus.
