Match Report
Yarm School Boys-U12B vs  Egglescliffe School
On: Friday, 06 Oct 2017
Venue: Away

For a first hockey match of their school careers the boys were raring to go and this was clear from the outset. Solid defending from Adhithyan Dinakaran and Guillermo Garcia allowed our midfield Toms (Williamson and Graham) to rampage forwards and it wasn't long before a strong run from Jonathan Wood resulted in the first goal past a particularly strong Egglescliffe goalkeeper. This was soon followed by a cool finish from Johnny Carr which took us into halftime with a strong advantage. Yarm really stepped up their passing and movement after the break resulting in another goal each for Jonathan and Jonny and and it was only 6 or 7 strong saves that prevented Yarm from really running away with the match. That said, Egglescliffe broke away with minutes to go and only a monumental diving stick save from Yarm keeper Ammar Soni kept the clean sheet that they deserved - 4-0 - a great start.
