HOCKEY

AN­OTHER gor­geous day in Beech­worth saw the U12 girls, the div 3 men and the div 3 women all play­ing at home on the stun­ning May­day Hills oval.

The girls fought hard against Scots but un­for­tu­nately went down 3-1, the men had a 0-0 draw against Fal­cons and the women came away with a 2-0 win.

The club is grate­ful to Gold­fields Green­gro­cer, which has of­fered to spon­sor the ju­nior teams with oranges each week.

The Newx­press Beech­worth award for awe­some­ness has to go to Lara (div 3 women) and Jude (div 3 men) who both turned 18 on the day and played great games.

A lot of the play­ers cel­e­brated Jude and Lara’s mile­stones at one of the club’s other spon­sors af­ter the game, Bridge Road Brew­ery.

The Indigo Real Es­tate award for ef­fort goes to Emily from U12 girls who was strong in de­fence and cleared the ball out of the D on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions. Un­der 12 boys: Af­ter a week’s rest thanks to a mid-sea­son bye, the boys came out fir­ing, and bril­liant team­work quickly ex­posed the Wombats’ de­fence with Beech­worth scor­ing freely.

The goalscor­ers get all the ac­co­lades, yet this was one of those games where the de­fend­ers, led by Cal­lum McLean, Chris­tian Davey and Beartie Wild, set the game up.

The ball was con­stantly driven for­ward al­low­ing the Beech­worth for­wards to slip be­hind the Wom- bats’ de­fence and score at will.

Clancy El­lett (4) and Oliver Neil (3) were the main goal scor­ers as Beech­worth ran out com­fort­able win­ners overs Wombats 10-1. Un­der 10: An­other great week of hockey for the Beech­worth’s U10 squad.

Both teams won their games on Satur­day and en­joyed the chal­lenge of play­ing on the half pitch.

Thanks to Oliver Neil and Ruby Ryan for step­ping up to coach the teams while Ian McVea was away on hol­i­days and Ben Mer­ritt was busy um­pir­ing.

Beech­worth White beat the Mag­pies 3-1 in a hard-fought game. Coach Oli was im­pressed with the team­work and skil­ful play.

Alex and Zoe Beat­son both scored goals as did Tilly Ryan but it was the smart play from all team mem­bers that set up the goal op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Dy­lan Roscouet played well in de­fence and sharp passes by Aimee McLau­rin and Leila Gephart kept the op­po­si­tion guess­ing.

Beech­worth Blue beat the Fal­cons 4-0. Well done to Hay­den Ma­caulay who scored two goals in his first game with the club.

Isaac McLean showed a lot of skill scor­ing two goals and pass­ing well through­out the game.

Anouk Plow­man and Clau­dia Neil both played strong games and Alis­tair Mer­ritt put in a big ef­fort and made some great plays.

The whole team tried hard and coach Ruby was im­pressed by how well every­one worked to­gether.
