It was lovely to umpire the U13D boys, who all played with great spirit and determination. Freddie won the toss and chose to start with the ball which was a good decision as we certainly had our attacking heads on and the ball was swiftly placed in the goal by Daniel after only 2 minutes. Fettes struggled a bit with our attacking formation, and the boys took every opportunity to get the ball in to the circle and have a shot at goal. Our second goal came from Freddie after Paddy played a lovely square ball from a free hit outside the D; Paddy then crossed the ball in for Freddie to slot it in. Oscar and Will worked well at the back and had a fairly quiet half as our midfield and attack were dominating the game however they were called on a few times and swiftly moved the ball away. Paddy continued with strong attacking skills, and 2 further goals from him, one of which was a superb sweep up high in to the back of the net, saw us end the first half 4-0 up.
George had a particularly strong second half and it was great to see him get stuck in and play good hockey. He created many a chance for his team mates and kept a cool and calm head on throughout the match. Oli was keen to get on the score sheet and it wasn’t long before he found the back of the goal; a strong shot tested the goal keeper and we found ourselves 5-0 up. The Fettes goal keeper, despite the score, was a great little player, and made some cracking saves. He kept his team in the game and made us work hard to score. Oscar played a couple of really clever balls up the wing from a free hit and one of these found George, who crossed the ball for Daniel to pop in the goal. We were piling on the pressure by this point and further goals from Freddie (2) and a breakaway goal from Paddy who scored with a lovely sweep, saw us finish the match 9-0.
Well done boys; a great day’s work!
