Andover took on Alton 6's who were a well drilled Division 9 side. The game started quite brightly but Alton started to dominate the midfield possession which led to two early Goals against what was a new back four set up with Kieron Mchenry making his first appearance in adult hockey. Both the goal came from silly mistakes which I am sure we will learn from. There was some good attacking play down both wings with Ed wolf Barry and Kieran Tasker making some good runs. Andover did struggle getting the ball through to the front men due to a strong press from Alton.
Second half Andover again started well trying to play their hockey but Alton managed to kill off the game with a third goal. Second half was better as the Alton Goalkeeper was forced to make two good saves. Again no shame in defeat this week as we were beaten by a better side but as this squad settles I don't think it will be long before we see a score line in our favour.
M.O.M for me Tom Duffield showed his brother how to play hockey . Be thanks again to all the Adults who helped out with this fixture and if anyone wants a game with the fourths you are always welcome.
