Muscat Foxes Hockey Club 3 - 8 Coorg Hockey Club
For our last hockey fix of 2011 we hosted our good friends from Coorg HC for a friendly game at the BSM astro. They fielded a very strong side, with two players in particular who were rather spectacular in midfield.
In a match of three 22 minute 'periods' we were slow out of the blocks in the first, going down 5-1. Dom getting the Foxes goal after an excellent team breakaway.
The second period was a far stronger and more confident performance by the Foxes, with Graham pulling us back to 5-2. Coorg responded with a goal and it was 6-2 going into the final 22 minute segment.
Two more Coorg goals were answered with a short corner goal from Graham, and a few chances spurned late on denied us making the scores a bit closer.
An excellent game, and some ruthless finishing at times from our visitors. The matches should come thick and fast in the New Year.
Pictures to follow.
