A great result for Colts A
After just a handful of sessions Colts A had their first hockey fixture against the Elms; a side full of county players with experience and tricks in abundance. There were 3-D skills remnant of Sophie Bray's Olympic gold match performance and numerous reverse hits and sweeps. Abberley have not quite developed such flair in their game but what they did have was determination and teamwork - as well as an acrobatic goalkeeper in the form of Harry. Rory's defence was also extremely effective in limiting the Elm's chances and I think overall attempts on goal were equal. The Elms scored first and continued to look strong but the Abberley spirit reigned true and the boys were rewarded with an equaliser from Miles. Other impressive efforts came from Archie, Luca, Ed and Will.
