Oban de­feat He­lens­burgh in hockey derby match

Argyllshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

Oban men faced He­lens­burgh 2s in their first Ar­gyll derby in the men’s hockey league.

For the sec­ond week run­ning, Oban went 2-0 up at half-time, and so how would the team play in the sec­ond half?

With the ben­e­fit of three subs, the side were able to ro­tate ef­fec­tively to make sure ev­ery­one had a good bal­ance of play­ing and rest­ing.

Valu­able con­tri­bu­tions from debu­tants Cameron Hath­away, Don­ald His­tead and Gavin Yates helped see the side through and se­cure the 2-0 win.

MOM was Gavin Yates, who added great strength and depth to the side in his role as sweeper. The de­fence in gen­eral were solid. A mas­sive thank you to Char­maine Love for um­pir­ing, who had a great game her­self.

Oban’s next game is an­other Ar­gyll derby where the team face He­lens­burgh 3s.
