HOCKEY UPPER HUTT WARRIORS' HOCKEY CLUB. JUNIORS 0. v: TECHNICAL 1. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 4 July 1940
UPPER HUTT WARRIORS' HOCKEY CLUB.
JUNIORS 0. v: TECHNICAL 1.
Both teams fielded short teams, but Warriors had the advantage territorially throughout the game.. Failure to get their shots quick- ly . when in the circle cost tHem
the game. Once the attack is ear-, ried into the opponent's circle, the quicker a goal- shot is made the better, as any delay action enables an opponent to/block the attempt. This slight hesitation on the part of the centre-forward was espe- cially noticeable and was time and again blocked when in front of an open goal. Technical did not have a goalie: . At half-time, there was no score either way. - The 'second half was much the same as -the Tfirst, Thompson, the -goalie,, moving up into a back position, played a solid game, Faulkner and Hill, halves, were, very prominent. The only goal scored was by Technical (1) in the last minutes of the game, and wab most d&cidedly scored from offside. •

THIRDS 0 v. WESLEY 1.
Here again both teams fielded one man short and Warriors had their fair share of the game. Fail- ure of the forwards to make the most of the opportunities offered, and. hesitation in the circle was also noticeable in this team. A tendency to over-hit was also re- sponsible for the breaking up of several good movements. There was no score at half-time. The second spell saw both strive even harder to secure a goal, and the ; game quicken accordingly. Stew- art played a solid game at back, and drove back many a dangerous - attack. M.,Pearce, plays a good / stick, and can always be relied on to give a good account of himself;" at left-half. Frater, left-inner ? broke... through several times. • failing to score through hesitation in the circle.
