U15 Boys’ hockey vs BGE@BGE

It was slow during the first quarter with not much happening from either team. However, in the second quarter the U15’s came out with a lot of energy and were applying pressure. Great team play led to a goal right at the last play ending the half 1-0. In the third quarter BGE started off really well and applied pressure but we defended well. Again in the final quarter BGE came out strong but we were up for the challenge and created some really good chances. Unfortunately in the last seconds of the game BGE scored a goal from some individual skilful dribbling. Game ended in a draw: 1-1. Well played.
