Kasse on Top After 2nd Round of Gillion Hockey 11s
In an outstanding display, the young striker Jerry Berry showed why his silky smooth finishing skills are a pleasure to watch as he converted almost every touch inside the attacking circle as Kasse routed the Development Team 8 goals to 1. Scoring every goal for the top team from Tanoliu, Berry provided a master class in finding the back of the net and his effort should stand as a Vanua Hockey goal scoring record for a long time to come.
Earlier in the day it was a tight tussle between two very evenly matched teams in Tanoliu Skelet Fish and Smolbag Smashers, ending in a deserved draw that had the crowd on the edge of their grassy seats. Raymond Namatak broke the stalemate for Smashers late in the first half with a lovely deflection into the top left of the net after some good lead up work by Bob Stewart. Skelet Fish fought hard all game and Paul Jeffrey was finally rewarded with a late equaliser in the second half after dominating possession in the midfield.
Next week's games will see Kasse take on Skelet Fish in a highly anticipated local derby while the improving Smashers will play the Development Team.
