U9A and B Hockey v Loretto

Some great skills on show!

Blues: Won 5-1

The Blues started well and found themselves in control of the match quite quickly. We played well as an attacking unit and had many opportunities on goal. Unfortunately, a lot of these opportunities were squandered by a lack of communication in the attacking unit. This is an area that I will be working on with them in training next week. However, we did convert quite a few chances into goal. I was also pleased with the defence. They did the job of breaking up attacks and clearing the ball well. A little more confidence needs to be had when taking a hit out. We shall work on marking the opposition next week as an area to improve on.

Stripes: Won 7-0

The Stripes also started on the front foot and dominated possession in the match. I was pleased with the attack playing the ball into the wide areas and then crossing the ball neatly into the D. The communication between the players was good and allowed them to zip the ball around the pitch and create a lot of opportunities. The defence held a solid line and broke up each attack that came their way. We shall also work on marking the opposition, which will improve their overall game.

Well done, boys!
