1st XI Hockey- Merchiston 24/01/18

In spite of a cold wind and several heavy showers, the Ardvreck 1st XI took to the field at Glenalmond for their first game of the season against Merchiston. The team raced out of the blocks with the first goal coming within a minute with a cross from Finn S slotted home by Will F. Some great passing, running lines and stick skills yielded more scores and we finished the first half 6-0 up. Elliott M wasn’t troubled much in goal and he swapped with Jago M for the second half.

Merchiston reorganised and came back at us with renewed vigour but our defence stood strong with some great tackling from Harris P and dominance in midfield from Cosmo GC. Ardvreck scores a further 4 goals, finishing the game 10-0, a great start to the season for the team – let’s hope we can keep it up!

Many thanks to Merchiston for travelling to play us, Glenalmond for hosting us and providing match tea, and Miss van Blerk for umpiring the game. (Mr Robertson)
