Match Reports

Men's Vic League 1 Reserves
We travelled to Ballarat for a 3-1 loss. Last year we fielded some of the youngest seconds team we can remember. This game was no different.
The guys work rate was fantastic and at Half time we were one all. The second half we lost a little composure and West Vic's experience shone thru and this reflected in the result.

Good first up, effort lots of plusses, lots to learn. 
Goal Ash Kemp. Best Robbo, Tom Berryman, Jack, Ash 

Women's Vic League 1
The KBH girls had the down trek to Mornington for the first round as a new club. After a couple of minor hiccups and a few wrong turns, all girls made it down in time. Looking flash in singlets 4 sizes too big and pink ribbons in support of the McGrath Foundation fundraiser (shout out to Lisa for her crafty work creating Katie the most extravagant headpiece I have ever seen someone play hockey in) we were ready to take the pitch.
With the experience of Lisa “out of retirement” Stewart, Ange “50 goals” Allen, and Sal “can walk around you” Schwal in the line-up, we were excited to show VL1 what we are made of. Some flashy runs from Holly tearing up the midfield, and some great play from Sal on the forward line - things were looking positive. Parts of the game saw KBH dominating the possession with some great positioning and leading, but we couldn’t seem to convert with a few missed opportunities sailing past the goals.

It was a tough fought game with KBH coming off second best, but some great passages of play have us all excited for the season to come. Having played on a pitch slower, sandier, and stickier than Elgar circa 2015, we can’t wait to play on our new pitch!

Congratulations to Ash, Elika, and Sally K for their first game of VL1, and a big welcome to Alice for her first game as a Brumby! Special mention to Millie Baker for some superb saves in the net, and sending the biggest GOOD LUCK message out to Jess Williams for under 21s this coming weekend.
First card of the season goes to Holly – still not sure what for!
End score: KBH 0, Mornington 2.

Women's Vic League 1 Reserves
First match of the season, an enjoyable but tense game played in Mornington in support of the pink sticks fund raiser event. Good performance by all players with most of the game 0-1 against us but with sheer determination right on the whistle we had an opportunity to even the score with a short corner. The forwards proved their worthiness and under pressure SCORE!! 1-1 it's a true sign of good things to come for the rest of the season.

How to submit a match report in 2016
 The rule is for 2016, if you WIN, your team MUST submit a match report by 7pm Wednesday. If you lose or draw this is optional but still preferred that you submit a short report.
Reports to Chelsea by the following Wednesday 7pm. Make sure you include what team it is for, the score, the report and the author. If team managers could delegate this task out to players in your team this would be greatly appreciated.

Social media usage
I am writing to draw your attention to the use of Social Media on the eve of the commencement of the 2016 Competition Season. The impact and importance of social media as a communications tool and as a promotional tool for our sport should not be underestimated. As an amateur sport, hockey can gain unprecedented exposure through social media if used to its capability and used appropriately. Read the full report here
