Hockey: Marlborough men inflict 7-0 home defeat against bottom of the table Buccs C team

 

Marlborough        7       Team Bath Buccs C       0

With Marlborough firsts playing Buccs B team the previous week and winning comfortably, playing their C team who were bottom and with no points so far, this game  was a good mental test of respecting every team you play.

 

Marlborough started strongly, counter attacking well and looking after the ball. They were rewarded with a short corner which was deflected into goal nicely by Charlie Hawley.

 

Marlborough continued to press high and turning the ball over on numerous occasions, found themselves further ahead going into half time with two goals from Rich Fynn (tap in at the far post and reserve stick strike), one from Will Hughes (tap in) and another from Rich Fynn who nailed a drag flick into the top corner to complete his hat trick: "Awesome finish!!"

 

5-0 at half time and reportedly the message from the skipper was more of the same, don’t drop off the intensity and look to score more.

 

However Marlborough listened, but didn’t apply. To their credit, Buccs played deeper and tried to hit Marlborough on the break, Marlborough became frustrated and lost a little bit of shape and couldn’t string two passes together.

 

They did however manage to score a couple more goals.  Firstly, Charlie Hawley smashed in a reverse stick strike into the corner and then Alex Renwick followed up his power strike with a flick over the keeper in the net.

 

All in all, a good performance. A little scrappy at times, but it was the first half display of good, quick, attacking play that did the damage.

 

Marlborough.news Man of the Match was Rich Fynn for his superb hat trick.



Ed Watson on Marlborough men's second team defeat at Royal Wootton Bassett:

Royal Wootton Bassett     5      Marlborough Seconds         0

A visit to the sand of high flying Wootton Bassett firsts was perhaps not the birthday treat that Keith Radnedge (or indeed Mrs Radnedge) was imagining.

 

That being said, after 35 minutes the team had provided Keith with a present worth smiling about - our best team marking performance for many a game.

 

With a very strong Bassett side, Marlborough set up a disciplined half court press which the home team found very hard to break down. Occasional forays into the opposition half, aided by Rob Hues' aerial threat, gave hope of a counterattacking smash and grab, but Bassett eventually broke the deadlock via a bizarre short corner which ended up bouncing off the apex of bar to be bundled in.

 

With a quarter of the game to go, 2-0 down felt very respectable, but rather inevitably the superior energy (and bench) of the home team was too much for tired Marlborough legs. A little more space was enough to allow the lead to stretch to five goals by the end of the game.

 

A hard day, but the general feeling was positive having kept a superior side honest for the majority of the game.

 

Marlborough.news Man of the Match went to Toby Sampson - for putting in an excellent shift in the midfield press.

 

Darren Crawford on Marlborough men's third team's away win at Shepton Mallet

Shepton Malllet        0      Marlborough Thirds    2

Marlborough Thirds made the trek to face top of the table Shepton Mallet.  They started full of confidence fielding a side with a mix of youth and ‘maturity’.

 

Marlborough controlled the midfield and it wasn’t long before a precision pass was put through to Chris Newton who drove into the D and scored a superb individual goal lifting it past an out-coming keeper into the left hand corner.

 

With lots of passing between the midfield and forward line, Marlborough kept control of the game.

 

It wasn’t long before an interchange of good passing resulted in the ball finding Harry Strover on the left hand post who put the ball away for Marlborough’s second goal.

 

The second half saw the momentum change - with Shepton on the offensive. Despite the pressure the defence with the 'mature guard' flanked by the youth of Dan Dix and Tom Llewelyn, held firm with no shots on goal.

 

A well deserved victory overall with some great hockey at times. Marlborough.news Man of the Match was Darren Crawford.
