PLASHET HOCKEY CLUB
Plashet Vs Wapping
It was a well earned victory
in the summer league on a warm evening. The team consisted of
plashet players for the future alongside the more experienced
personnel. The young players (to mention a few- Onkar, Harminder,
Sukhraj & Navjot etc.) showed great enthusiasm encased with
creativity permitting good use of skill & movement. The first
half was well poised as Plashet enjoyed the lions share of
possession, coming close with attempts from Randeep &
Harminder. As the first half went on defensively Plashet became
increasingly more comfortable with senior players - Bobby and Sukh
distributing the ball comfortably to fellow team players.
The second half started the same
way the first one had ended and was also dictated by plashet with
the goal arrived after a good close one two between the 'veterans'
Pali and Sandz who set up Onkar.Minutes
before that Onkar had been illegally brought down by the Wapping
keeper and the umpire (tony the lawoo!!! ) waved play on. As time
went on Sukhraj becaming an increasing influence down the right
hand channel. His energy combined with the hard work of inside
forwards - Verinder and Randeep and the right winger- Navjot led
to plashet moving closer to the second goal that they deserved.
Finally a rebound of the Wapping goal keeper's pads was collected
the Onkar who smashed it low past the ever stretching keeper's
left foot to seal a two nil win.
