In the County U14 Tournament RHS had a good series of games.
RHS v Framlingham (L 5-0)
In our first game RHS came up against a very strong Framlingham team. Despite playing some decent hockey, in particular by Ben Arulampalam, RHS lost this game 5-0.
RHS v Woodbridge (D 0-0)
Against Woodbridge, in an excellent first half, the team created lots of opportunities but failed to score. Despite dominating large parts of the game, slack finishing meant the game finished at 0-0.
RHS v Culford (W 1-0)
Nick Paddon played very well which meant that we managed to keep the ball for most of the game and an excellent goal from Zack Puckey meant that RHS won 1-0.
RHS v Ipswich (D 0-0)
The final game was against Ipswich. This was a very even game and Scott Taylor managed to get on the ball and create some opportunities. A tiring RHS worked very hard to create openings but really the game could have been won by either team. The final score was 0-0.
Games on Saturday were against Culford.
U14B v Culford (L 5-3)
Kev Tavainavesi scored first from an impossible angle but then the Culford attack proved too quick for our defenders. Further goals from Harry Pugh and Callum Hensby kept RHS in the game until he final whistle.
U14A v Culford (L 4-3)
The U14As started incredibly slowly allowing Culford the majority of possession, the score at half time was 1-1. In the second half, Elliot Rayment dominated the right hand side and Charlie Miles ran some excellent lines. Despite creating lots of opportunities and playing the better hockey, uncharacteristic soft defending meant we gave away goals far too easily. The final score was 4-3 and players of the match were Elliot Rayment and Will Christmas.
U15B v Culford (D 2-2)
The U15B team drew 2-2 and could easily have scored more with 21 shots in the second half! Goals were converted by Cedric Hoskyns-Abrahall and Matt Saxby. The tireless Toby Oliver was man of the match.
U15A v Culford (L 6-1)
The A team found Culfords finishing too clinical despite some great saves from keeper Lexy Peterson. Final score 6-1 to the hosts.
2nd v Culford (W 3-1)
The 2nds kept great shape and discipline to overcome a spirited Culford side. Goals from Cameron Kerr, Brendan Tait and Harvey Sellers saw RHS home to pleasing win 3-1.
1st v Culford (L 4-2)
The first VII produced their strongest performance of the season so far, but unfortunately still came away on the wrong end of the score line. RHS dominated the first half with Ollie Lovejoy scoring. However, two short corner goals gave Culford an undeserved half time lead. The visitors started strongly in the second half as RHS were slow out of the blocks. Despite this, the team rallied again and Jessie Vogel capped an excellent individual performance with a goal from a penalty stroke to leave the final result a disappointing, yet promising, 4-2 loss
