Match Report

This was the first ever hockey match for the boys in the A team. We were up against a very strong Wisbech team, most of whom play hockey for a club outside school.  It was soon clear that Wisbech moved the ball quickly and were going to be a threat when attacking. One player in particular had a very strong shot and  scored a coupe of goals from the edge of the D by sending it past Toby’s head into the top corner! Despite this I was really impressed by the effort that all the boys put into the game with some great tackling by Jenson, Wilf, Max Aydin and William in particular. We came into the game more in the second half and managed to win two penalty corners and have a few efforts on goal. Although it was a very tough first game of hockey, it did show the team what to aspire to by the end of term!
