U9 Hockey v Fettes

  Belhaven  3  -  6  Fettes 

The U9 IX headed down to the Hallhill astro, a new match venue for the team, to face Fettes in the first of a series of fixtures against them this term. The boys did well to keep warm in the howling wind as they waited for the opposition to arrive. The match opened with some good movement of the ball from both sides, with neither team managing to breach the other’s goal. Archie Robson was energetic in moving the ball around the midfield, whilst Ivan Eardley was a rock in defence.

The deadlock was broken however with Fettes scoring one, and then adding another two soon afterwards. Belhaven rallied to pull one back, the reward of some excellent work from Sam Jack, Eck Trotter and Oliver Tobin. At this point we were unlucky to temporarily lose Archie Robson to an injury, and whilst he hobbled off he was soon back in action. The goals kept coming thick and fast, but the boys kept running and pushing Fettes for possession, and Charlie Jameson and Wilfred Janson should be commended for their efforts at this stage of the match. Belhaven cracked on with courage and determination and were rewarded with two further goals for their efforts. Overall, a solid performance demonstrating steady improvements across the board. We look forward to the return fixture!
