The under 11 teams played some excellent hockey today with the A team winning 10-5 and the B team winning 9-0.
After a close first half where both A teams went into the break locked at 5-5, the second half we stepped up a gear and scored 5 unanswered goals. It was end to end stuff on the smaller pitch but Monty impressed with his attacking and defensive play and Dexter shone on the left with his terrific positional play. Charles worked tirelessly up front and Caspian put on a good display with some nice skill and passing on the left after being moved across from the B team at half time.
The B team were very strong, scoring 9 goals in the first half mainly through Caspian, Oliver and Theo. In the second half, both sets of players were mixed together and one of the teams came out on top winning 4-2.
It was lovely to watch some wonderful hockey as both Cargilfield teams moved the ball quickly with firm passing, impressing both sets of parents. Well done to all the players on what was a highly entertaining hour of hockey on the south side of Edinburgh.
