Boston Hockey Club’s under 14s were in county league action at Lincoln this weekend.
The side included a number of under 12s, but what the side lacked in experience thay made up for in determination.
The first game clearly showed the gap in age. Against Lincoln B, most of the opposing players were a lot taller than the young Boston side.
This physical element certainly helped the hosts and they scored two well-taken goals against a side that certainly tried but couldn’t match the speed and thought processes.
In the next game, against Bourne Deeping B, the contest was a far closer affair, with both sides evenly matched.
Deeping were short on numbers and borrowed two Boston players.
Joel Wilson and Mursalleen Asif both went close for Boston, while keeper Zain Asif pulled off a great late save as the contest finished goalless.
Boston’s third game was against Bourne Deeping A, who were a different proposition to their B counterparts.
A battling display saw Boston gain their second point with another 0-0 draw, before replicating the scoreline again when they faced Alford.
Defender Thomas Scuffham and Marco Gilmour both impressed in this match, while Joseph O’Shea almost netted.
The final game against Spalding was settled by a single goal that was deflected in off a Boston stick, leaving Asif with no chance.
However, the result was a fair reflection of the match.
