Under 11 Hockey v Merchiston

One won and lost one. Well played, boys!

Won 1 game & Lost 1 game.

We had a super couple of games with Merchiston this afternoon. Many of our visitorswere new to hockey although there were a few who were strong players and made it into a competitive session. In the first game, our A team played well together in spells. Theytook a while to move the ball around properly and were too busy trying to take on too many players individually. Eventually we started to pass the ball into the players in space and our ball speed was good. At times, we allowed their best player too much room but we worked out trying to put two players on him helped break up the play. Particularly good play came from Archie at the back who made some excellent passes to players in space. Toby was lively on the right and Theo began to run across the pitch picking up to free areas. However, the player of the first match was Dexter for his excellent work rate.

In the second game, our B team was made up of four boys who didn’t play in the first game and we had four pairs of boys to who came on to make it up to 7 a side. Maxi played with lots of energy and made the team gel with his passing to his team mates in all directions. Oliver kept his width on the left and linked up with Maxi and the striker. Alexander A played on the right and was strong in passing the ball but needs to try and go around the outside instead of cutting back in. Senuka was the player of the match for his wonderful tackling and energy at the back, frustrating their attacking players. Well done to Mack and Alexander L who represented all the teams, both Cargilfield and Merchiston and made some terrific saves. Both goalkeepers have been working hard at games and in the evening club and are really coming on.

Well done to all the boys who kept playing with enthusiasm and a lovely nature.
