Mix-up game L3/4/5s

May 4, 2021

Result: Whites 8 Reds 3     Jo Price

This should have been our last Saturday friendly but our opposition pulled out late in the day.  We took the opportunity to play a full-pitch game but without goalkeepers producing a high-scoring match in the Southgate sunshine.  Around 30 players from across the squads turned out for the 11.00 PB producing some neat play from both sides with the teams looking fairly evenly matched during a competitive first half.

However, in the second half the Whites, despite losing most of their subs, took control and powered ahead.  The Reds   almost secured their 4th goal with a break through the middle but were foiled by an impressive last ditch  intervention from a white defender. They continued to press valiantly to the end but the White defence  proved impenetrable  and they were  were unable to  make a break  through.

 I have to be honest and say that I don’t remember who scored all the goals.  For the Reds, Bhu cracked a shot from the edge of the D with Kathy sprinting in from the left to ensure that the ball crossed the line.  For the Whites, Vicky G 

put in a big shift on the forward line, scoring one and ably assisting with several others.  However, the top scorer for the day was Whites, Queen of the Quiz, Michelle J with four 

goals to her name!  

Everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and those who were able to stay enjoyed chocolate cake in the garden to celebrate Kim’s birthday. 

Southgate Hockey Club. Great fun, great hockey, great facilities.
