Match report – U10 Boys at Pelicans – Sunday 13 November

U10 Boys at Pelicans

With a mix of A and B team players, we had hoped for a gentle run out in what would have been the “silver” tournament, but with a lack of teams, we were split into two pools, to decide who played the second round in either Gold or Silver half.

Pool 1
Norwich City Wizards v Magpies 1:0 W (Ben Currie)
Dragons Red v Magpies 5:0 L
Dragons White v Magpies 4:0 W (Ben Currie 2 Will Menzies)

Although we lost heavily to Dragons side, we played really strong hockey in all three games, dominating play in the last. The two wins made us runners up in our pool, which put us into the Gold play off with the winners of our pool ( Dragons Red) and the winners ( City Knights) and runners up (Dereham) of pool 2.

Magpies v Dereham 0:0 D
Magpies v Dragons Red. 3:0 L
Magpies v City Knights. 1:0 W (Ben Currie)

Spurred on by the goals in the first pool, the boys played good, strong hockey in their last three games, as the scorelines show, with a much smalller loss to the very strong Dragons team.

Great offence and defence played all day, very well done boys, you thoroughly deserved your third place for today.

Thank you parents for making the trip and giving your support.
