A lovely morning for hockey in Naracoorte.
Dartmoor vs Redlegs – Under 9
It was a lovely morning to come out to hockey.
Darts were playing against Redlegs and Darts were very short. Reds lent some of their players to give an even game to play. All the kids were really keen and all chased the ball. The game was quite even with everyone playing a fantastic match.

Dartmoor vs Greenbottles – Men
The men’s game between Greens and Darts was a good game to watch with both teams getting many opportunities to score. The first quarter saw fill-in Jacob Edwards score by following up on a Darts penalty corner. Greens replied strongly with the attack forcing some penalty corners, unable to score until MJ managed to get one through before quarter time.
The 2nd quarter followed in the same fashion with both teams scoring through Alex (D) and MJ (G) again. Half time saw the teams deadlocked at 2-2.
The 3rd quarter was an arm wrestle with neither team able to score. To start the final quarter Jack (D) found the goal in the first 30 seconds, giving Darts the lead. However, Greens fought back again and managed to score through MJ. Tied up again, both teams tiring, Darts managed a penalty corner and found a goal through John shortly after. The game ended after a penalty corner from the Greens team that didn’t go in, leaving Darts with the win.
Credit to Greens for not giving up, good effort by all.
