3rdXI Hockey beat Loretto

A fifth encounter of the term!

The Cargilfield and Loretto Under 13C teams met for their fifth encounter of the season, the penultimate meeting of the series. Loretto proved to be a tougher side in this match; robust in defence and determined in attack. The Cargilfield boys stood up well to the test, Jaime and Joel winning the midfield battles more often than not and distributing the ball with some effect to the forward and wings. On the wings, Jack and Will used the space well, either dribbling forward or redistributing into the D. Once again Oliver did a marvellous job up front to make room to shoot at goal and was rewarded with two goals. All of the boys worked hard to win the ball when Loretto was in possession, tracking back and aiding the defenders where necessary. In defence, Monty and Findlay were called upon many times to stop attacks and stood up to the task well. In the second half shots on goal were more plentiful and goalkeeper, Leo, needed to make some good saves to maintain the lead.

The final score was a 2-1. Well done to all the boys for the tremendous work rate they demonstrated.
