St John's School, Leatherhead Junior A vs Lord Wandsworth College
On: Saturday, 04 Feb 2017
Junior A boys hockey team turned up at Lord Wandsworth College today in high spirits after a good result last weekend. On a slippery pitch the boys found their feet fairly quickly, passing the ball around and breaking at speed. Unfortunately the opposition took an early lead through a nice penalty corner move. This seemed to spur the St John's boys on and they quickly made the game all square, Luke Read with a great reverse stick finish. 1st half finished 1-1.
Second half was a close affair with both teams defending well, Ewan Armstrong and Jake Cripps where excellent in defence and Tom Winchester showed some good attacking play down the right hand side. Unfortunately another 2 smooth corners from the Lord Wandsworth team saw them take a 3-1 lead. The boys fought hard but couldn't find the goals they needed. The final score was 3-1 to Lord Wandsworth.
