Women’s Round 3 Results

  Round three was a great weekend of hockey with a massive 30 goals scored by the Women of FHC. The final tally of results were: five wins, three losses and a draw. Terrific work by everyone this weekend. Premier League 3 def Hawthorn 1 Goals O Colasurdo, S Ellis 2, L Merret 2, This was a massive game for both clubs with the winner keeping in touch with the top end of the ladder. Both teams have had good results to the start of the year and Hockey Victoria had Hawthorn as favorites to take the points. The game started with FHC getting some forward pressure on Hawthorn but Hawthorn took control with accurate passing and should have hit the score board early but failed to convert. A lack of talking let Hawthorn have numerous shots at goal but failed to get the shots on target. FHC finally earned a corner with one of the few circle penetrations achieved. The corner was converted with Leah Merrett deflecting shot to the top left hand side of goals. The score at half time was 1-0.

FHC finally broke through Essendon’s defence and earned a few corners but were unable to convert, also a penalty stroke which was saved by a diving keeper. The first half ended at nil all. The second half started just like the first with neither teams really finding their feet. Late in the second half Essendon scored off some scrappy play. This kick charged FHC who had numerous chances to score but failed to convert late in the second half.  A missed opportunity but one we can learn from. We introduced another player to the firsts with Gabby ” machinette ” Lewis, and for her first game this year Jess Snaize. A very young team learned a few lessons today and hopefully all will be playing to the potential of the team.   Premier League Reserves 0 lost...
