U11B Hockey v Belhaven
It was a goaltastic game of hockey at Cargilfield when our U11Bs took on Belhaven. With a strong team, we were raring to go and take on the Belhaven side.
The first goal saw Monty firing the ball straight to Jack in the D to quickly play it round the keeper. A few minutes later, a similar set up occurred with Monty once again directing the ball to goal, this time to Jamie on the back post for a lovely deflection. Lochie put his first goal of the game on paper by firing a rocket straight into the net. At this point Belhaven came back with force and despite a save from Timothy, unfortunately a well placed player scored a rebound for Belhaven’s first goal. David and Ollie, with their communication and great positioning, passed the ball around the pitch, then up the wings to Lochie to score (despite having three defenders coming at him at the same time!).
Not happy with only four goals at half time, the team kicked it up a gear and were hungry for more in this second half. Geordie, who had been giving all of the other team a run for their money by literally running circles around, was a constant presence, firing those shots in to anyone who could pick them up in the D. The team started to lose momentum a little and the positioning did crumble, but after a few goals let in the team gathered their thoughts, screwed their brains back in and were fully focused once more. Arlo, coming back from a slight hand injury, used his hockey knowledge to see the free spaces and available passes to help in scoring almost every goal in the second half.
The game finished with a 7-4 win in the end, what a fantastic score! As we approach the end of the season we will be focusing on not losing that focus further into the game, as well as positioning ourselves across the pitch (and especially on the wings). Special mention to our Player of the Match for his hattrick (+1). Great effort, boys!
