Round 15 – Season 2021
A foggy morning, turned into a brilliant day for good quality hockey.
Under 9 – mixed matches
Greenbottles (2) vs Kingston/Lucindale – Under 13
A foggy start soon cleared for these super keen hockey players! The dominant Kingston/Lucindale senior players Chris Hille, Corrie Taylor and Teagan Hocking were keen to get the score on the board.
However, the Greenbottles had other ideas. Enthused by his recent under 13 State selection Greens Will Ellis scored the first goal of the game. Kingston/Lucindale’s Chris Hille responded with one of his own.
Toby Boord, Archie Carruthers-Murray and Ella Andrews continued to provide a foundation for the Greens with the infallible Jack Hutchesson in Goals. Not to be underestimated, the youngest members of both teams kept to the basics working well together.
Daniel Hill and Mason Young were superstars in attack for Kingston/Lucindale but sadly were not rewarded with a goal. Thwarted constantly by Harrison Andrews passing and tackling in the defensive circle. Rebecca Clothier from Kingston/Lucindale was also dangerous and Greenbottles were fortunate to survive their attacks.
Alice Fry made some fabulous runs down as left striker. Not to be outdone, Henry Fry as right striker pursued the ball with that familial zest we know so well. Both of them showing that the youngest of players can get good things done. Jacqueline Clothier in goals for KL was superb only letting two goals past for the game.
There was no chance for a quick Kingston/Lucindale score with the persistence of Toby Boord switching play, tackling and using some lovely stick skills throughout the entire game working well for and with his team.
Finally Harriet Waters surprised Chris Hille in the dying minutes of the game winning more than one tackle from him bringing the ball through to attack for her team.
Greenbottles 2 celebrated a win 2-1.

Greenbottles vs Redlegs – Men
Greenbottles started the game with a strong push to their forward line. Michael Justin was keen to get a score on the board and he didn’t take long to get it into the goals. Great work in Greenbottles midfield from Derek James and Cameron Taylor fed the ball back into the circle for Michael Justin’s second goal.
Redlegs defence was working hard, the goalie going to great extent crawling in a one on one in an attack from Callum Carruthers-Murray. Gavin Boord was persistent in his attack on goals but just couldn’t penetrate Redlegs defence.
Pressure from Redlegs Pete Anderson and Daniel Kitto kept the ball flowing back to midfield. Greenbottles Mick Derrington was pulling some tricky moves in goals but Redlegs goalie Andrew Doecke was pulling out some serious Kung Fu moves to prevent any making it through.
Derek James took a fast paced run down the field to right of goals with Gavin taking the pass and sneaking it through out of the goalie reach.
A fast paced run from MJ to the circle opened the second half, with some fancy footwork and quick sticks moves got ball through to score. Shot by Greenbottles from a short was to no avail.
Redlegs was able to take advantage of a fast turnover and take the ball all the way through with Jaali Brennan scoring the first goal for Reds.
The 3rd quarter was a pretty even match with Redlegs Dash Adams and Dylan Montgomery working and Greenbottles Henry Boord and the ever dependable Scott Copping well in the midfield. Henry Norcock made an appearance in a short corner with a huge swing and a miss mistaking the turf for the golf greens.
Derek James was able to make the most of chaos in the circle and score off a deflection. A run from the one armed bandit down the sideline brought the game to a dramatic end.
Final score 4-1
