Match Report
Haileybury Boys 2nd XI vs  Hitchin Boys' School
On: Tuesday, 11 Jan 2022
Venue: at Home

Lost 10-0

Against a very talented Hitchin side we were given a lesson in how effective slick passing and movement can be. Whilst the scoreline might indicate otherwise Demyan was outstanding in goal pulling of multiple saves to thwart the efforts of the opposition.

We did have passages of play where we strung together passes to move forward positively to once again show that we have the potential to also play good hockey ourselves. However we were guilty of too easily giving the ball back to the opposition with a 'random' pass rather than making certain of putting the ball to a team mates stick. Hadrian had an excellent game at right half and grew in effectiveness in that area of the field. His passing, composure on the ball were a real feature. Ed H once again was a rock in defence and was only beaten by the slick passing and never by any dribbling. His distribution was also strong. Elsewhere captain Jamie C worked tirelessly and enjoyed some success.

we are to be commended for continuing to play hockey throughout the whole match and not losing our focus in the face of such strong opposition
