Pro-life Kelburne Ladies 3s Lose Out vs Loch Lomond

On Saturday 8.9.18 at the GNHC

Impressive strong play from a side that consisted mainly of youngsters, some making their debut in senior hockey, which was held together by strong on-field coaching from Carol Feeney and Fiona McGrane.  Despite numerous, positive attacks on goal and fantastic tackles kelburne was unable to score in the first half, however, an impenetrable defensive barrier saw that Loch Lomond Ladies were unable to score either.  Half time 0:0  About 10 minutes into the second half, the Kelburne youngsters drove the ball up towards the goal with some impressive play across the pitch, with a twirl inside the D followed by a shot on goal, by Lucy MacMillian, saw Kelburne take a well-deserved lead.  However, this was short lived when Loch Lomond managed to sneak in two goals within 5 minutes.  Unfortunately, although Kelburne were fearless against a more experienced team they were unable to come back and the game finished 1-2.  The team showed outstanding enthusiasm, effort and had more energy than chocolate throughout the entire game, they were unlucky not to come out on top.   Great Hockey – well done girls!  The score really was not a true reflextion of the game.  Next game is a cup match against Loch Lomond again on Saturday at 1.30pm, GNHC.
