Under 13C Hockey v Loretto
In their fifth competitive encounter of the term versus Loretto, having won the previous four, the boys faced a strengthened opposition. In the first half the boys did not pass enough and sought to take on too much as individuals. This meant that despite the valiant efforts of Alex and Alex in defence, the Loretto team led by two goals going into the last quarter of the match. During the second half the Cargilfield boys had begun to pass more and communicate more effectively and slowly the pressure began to reverse and finally with five minutes to spare they managed to work the ball around the D until Jaime tapped the ball into the goal. The boys maintained the pressure and made a few more chances but the shots missed narrowly each time. Although the the match ended with their first loss of the season, 1-2, the boys can be commended for their determination and resolve to keep fighting.
