Week 3 - Wednesday 17 May
Middle School Hockey
Pulteney defeated by Saint Peter's 2-0
The Middle School Hockey team took to the field for their first game of the season. With the Year 8’s on camp the team consisted of Year 7 and Year 9 players only. The Year 7s did a wonderful job in their first time playing full field hockey and playing in positions they weren’t accustomed to. The Year 9s performed extremely well, taking charge and guiding the less experienced players. An excellent job was done during the game by David Semaan as goalie and Luke Smid in attack. I look forward to next Wednesday when all players from Year 7,8 and 9 will be available and Pulteney will field two teams.

Week 3 - Saturday 20 May
First XI Hockey
Pulteney defeated Saint Peter's 4-3
After a fantastic start to the season last week, Pulteney First XI came up with another courageous effort against Saint Peters. The early minutes of the first half were uneventful with neither team taking control. As the game continued Pulteney slowly started to gain a foothold and progressively worked their way forward. Through tenacious and intelligent teamwork Pulteney put away the first goal with another two following close behind. Going into the second half Pulteney was in control from the start but a skilled and fast passing play from Saints saw the score start to close. With the game coming into its’ closing minutes Saints, through some aggressive play, put two more away with parents and coach crossing fingers and having heart attacks as the dying moments of the game ticked past. Some steadfast defence and brilliant play from goalkeeper Matt Slattery saw Pulteney through with their record set at 2-0 thus far this season.
Best Players Matt Slattery, Rory Hillock, Sam Heal and Callum Menadue.
Scorers: Rory Hillock 1, Callum Menadue 2, Sam Heal 1
