St John's School, Leatherhead Junior A vs St Benedict's School, Ealing
On: Saturday, 11 Mar 2017
Venue: at Home
As we edge towards the end of the season, the boys were tasked with playing as we did last week; aggressive and attacking hockey. We started well with some excellent play leading to a goal for Peter Sinclair from a short corner. Keeping possession firmly in the opposition's half, Billy Bishop showed good skill to hit the bac board, before a Luke Read double and a goal from Ollie Timpson made us 5-0 ahead at half time.
The challenge set for the second half: score more goals; keep a clean sheet and execute clean passes. The team all stepped up to this well, with Jack Harrison scoring just 30 seconds in. This was followed by goals from Will Payne, Jake Cripps and Chris Munro. Taking the opportunity to try some new positions, Luke Francis played well around the park, safe in the knowledge Ewan Armstrong was ready to clear up any collateral damage.
An excellent performance, setting us up well for the last two matches.
