Oban defeat Helensburgh in hockey derby match
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.
