Sports Report - Yr 10/11 Hockey
A hard fought match against a much improved Brymore team saw the yr 10/11 hockey squad use the pace and stickskills of midfield Nikita Cernicovs and will Stokes to breakdown the Brymore attacking breaks and set up attacking moves for the Chilton side. Chilton dominated the first half spending much time in the attacking third and despite the movement, skills and possession they were thwarted by the 11 man Brymore defence who were prepared to put their bodies on the line to defend the goal! In the second half the game became more open. the Chilton defenders of Jay Lloyd Howell, Joe R, George H, Bailey, David M made timely tackles distributing the ball to the wide midfielders James G, Josh D . Connor B in goal had a commanding half organising the marking and making good simple saves. Toby Knight linked well with Jacob G and Callum W who were making good runs around the opposing d to draw defenders. Chilton defended strongly but were unable to capitalise on their attacks with Will, Nikita and Toby all going close with shots just wide of the posts. the game finished a frustrating but fair 0-0.
The team learned lots and also are focussed for their games in the Somerset Finals now to be held Thurs 14th Decat Kings College.
