OTC Junior Blue 11/6 vs Waipuna 14/15 Jets
This weekend’s game was evenly matched, which made it exhilarating for both the players and supporters. At half-time, Waipuna was ahead by two goals and things were looking a bit grim as shot after shot at their goal was not producing any points for the Blues, belying the evenness of the teams.
However, a change in goalie and a mixing up of players and positions meant that the goals started flowing. Waipuna’s defensive line broke down, and the Junior Blues ended up with a win. The final score was 6-5, showing how close these two teams are in their skill. Stand-out plays were seen by Daniel Hall, Oscar Downard, and Riley Castles, but all the lads were on form for the entire game. – Marg Brewerton, Manager
