Boys' Hockey: U11 v Fettes

U11 Hockey:

Today provided a welcome chance to field every single one of our 26-strong boys’ hockey cohort in three sides against Fettes.

The C-team match was up first, and Belhaven won in cold put fair conditions thanks to an early goal well swept in by Monty.  Despite good Fettes pressure in the second half we had the better of the chances and deservedly won 1-0.

Man of the Match: Jack G. for taking the ball at pace and swiftly moving it on.

The B-team was a more one-sided affair as Belhaven dominated play through three goals from Basil and one from Eck.  We had a lot of goalmouth pressure and deservedly won well.

Man of the Match: Basil de la B.

 

By the time the A-team match came around the weather had turned completely and the decision was taken, given Fettes had travelled over an hour to get here, to attempt the match rather than abandoning.  We started early but played just one twenty-minute half and Fettes dominated much of the play with their good stick skills and clean hitting.  We had three good opportunities which Tommy and Alfie just whistled past the post but Fettes were well on top and despite the sun reappearing as we finished we all gladly called an end to the day’s sport.

Man of the Match: Charlie T.

Belhaven C 1-0 Fettes C.
Belhaven B 4-1 Fettes B.
Belhaven A 0-7 Fettes A.
