ALL three of Abergavenny hockey club’s senior teams were back at the home pitch for another ‘Super Saturday’ last weekend, with supporters enjoying a spectacular win by the Ladies first team, who continued their winning streak with a 9-0 victory against Fishguard.

Still on a high from last week, the team went into the match with confidence. Abergavenny played the majority of the first half in the opposition’s territory, maintaining a high intensity and allowing numerous occasions to find the back of the net. With the whole team working hard to pass the ball around Fishguard defenders, gaps soon appeared and allowed Abergavenny to score twice before the break.

In the second half Abergavenny maintained their composure, denying Fishguard even one shot on goal and resulting in a clean sheet for the home team’s keeper. Great support play by defenders forced Fishguard into their D, allowing Abergavenny to keep scoring and eventually celebrate a fantastic final result.

The Ladies second team narrowly missed a draw with Whitchurch Valleys, with a final 2-1 victory to the away team. A tense first half saw some great passes and runs by Abergavenny, who stayed calm and composed throughout. An away team goal near the end of the first half left them little time for celebration, as an Abergavenny ball swiftly hit the back of their net in return courtesy of Becca Hoyle.

The second half was equally well played, with some close calls on the away team’s goal, though none quite reaching the target. Then a ball slipped into Abergavenny’s goal, unfortunately with little time left to balance the score sheet again. Despite a narrow loss, the match showed some great moments for the seconds and is a solid foundation to build on.

Abergavenny’s youngest stars travelled to Tondu on a very wet Sunday morning to compete in another of their Under 9s monthly tournaments. The weather didn’t stop Abergavenny from putting up a good fight in all five games.

Narrow losses in their first two matches didn’t deter the team, who bounced back with huge enthusiasm and energy to finish the day with three wins against Brecon, Gwent and Bridgend.

As each match went on the team grew stronger and stronger, defending well as a team and creating a huge number of goal scoring opportunities which were finished off superbly by Abergavenny. The club would like to thank all the parents for their commitment and continued support.
