LX 75’s Get Together
at OXFORD HAWKS on Wednesday 24th Feb 2016
We were joined by the LX70’s [Australia Bound] on a beautiful sunny day for our triangular event starting with Coffee / Tea at 11:00am prior to hockey commencing at 12noon.
The first game paired the LX70’s V Greens and with both sides evenly matched chances were in short supply. Greens defence was able to cope with
any attacks mounted by LX70’s and 0-0 was a fair result.
The second game saw Greens V Whites with Greens the stronger and mounting numerous attacking moves on the White’s defence and from one of a number of penalty corners the ball was returned to the injector Tony Henman who scored from an acute angle. Greens failed to convert a number of other scoring opportunities and the game ended 1-0 to Greens.
The third game saw LX70’s V Whites with the 70’s in dominance and winning convincingly 4 -0 with goals from Woolcott 1 Mason 1 Denley 2
Players and supporters retired to the Club House and enjoyed an excellent 2 course meal with lots of after match conversation and 75+ players looking forward to the next gathering at Olton on the 17th March for the trial to select an England Squad to play the Netherlands twice at the Tilburgh Tournament in June.
