U9 Boys Hockey at Merchiston

A great afternoon in the cold!

Blues: Drew 1-1

The Blues played first against Merchiston on a rather frosty afternoon. Individually they were good at dribbling with the ball and attacking but not so much playing as a team and giving each other movement away from defenders. This is something that we will work on in training and takes time to happen. We dominated possession for a lot of the match but need to be more clinical in putting the ball in the goal.

Stripes: Won 3-0

The Stripes played second and played a much more team-oriented game, with each member looking to find a teammate more than the first game. We were strong in winning the ball in midfield and turning the counter on. Our striker sat high up the pitch and capitalised on the through ball to score the goals for the team.

Our next big goal is to work on the defensive side of the game more and know how to switch between defence and attack and back again comfortably.

Well done, boys!
