Weekend Results 11th-12th June 2022

What a bumper weekend of hockey for the SPHC Mens teams with not one but two Derby games, it was great seeing everyone out and about across the weekend representing Suburbs on and off the turf (and a big thanks to those who volunteered their time to help roll the Cheese Rolls for this year)

Premier Men Intercity

The weekend started off with our Prem men taking on Varsity Landmark Homes, in a hard-fought battle.  The boys were down 2-0 after three quarters but the team kept their heads up and came roaring back into the game with 2 goals in less than 6 minutes, unfortunately Varsity scored a fourth in the 63rd minute with the final score 4 – 2. (SPHC Prem Men Goals: Jean-Luc Gofton x 2. Varsity Landmark Homes Goals: Matt Rees-Gibbs x 2, Cam Hayde x 2)

 

Mens Reserve 1

In the second of the derby games the SPHC Prem Dev Men faced off against the SPHC Saints, the Saints came roaring out of the blocks and after a scrappy first half lead 2-0 at the break.  The Prem Dev men managed to make some adjustments in the second half to better match the Saints and managed to square the game up 2-2, which was the fulltime score, both teams gave it their all and the draw was a fair reflection on the game.  On a side note it was great to have both Jean-Luc and Leon back on the turf for the Prem Devs. (SPHC Prem Dev Men Goals: Haydon Naish, Jean-Luc Gofton.  SPHC Saints Goals: Cameron Stevenson, Luke Graham)

 

Mens Reserve 2

The first derby game of the day was played out between the SPHC Reserve Men and the SPHC Pastits.  This matchup is always an entertaining fixture and both teams didn’t disappoint, the Reserve men drew first blood but it wasn’t long before the Pastits answered back. It was a seesaw battle with both teams leading at different points throughout the match at fulltime however the score was locked up at 4-4 to end in a fair draw.  With this game always played hard it is always a daunting prospect for those brave enough to umpire and big thanks to both Owen Pratt and Connor Jones for keeping us all on the straight and narrow (SPHC Reserve Men Goals: Connor Laybourne x 2, Ronnie Bird, Leon Teao. SPHC Pastits Goals: Chris Toombs x 2, Oliver Fulton, Bevan Muirhead)

 

Mens Reserve 3

The SPHC 3rd Div Men had a tough run against HOB Watts & Hughes, in what turned out to be a nail biter and against the best efforts of our boys they went down 2-1 to a fast finishing Old Boys. (unfortunately Hockio has not recorded the goal for SPHC 3rd div so we wont list goals for this game)
