Upper Clutha Black Kwik Sticks found their goal-scoring mojo after the holiday break, with Oscar Crowe diving straight into the action and scoring in the second minute against Cromwell Red last week. Six minutes later, Alice Porter added another goal, following repeated hassle on the Cromwell goalie who, after about seven saves, was unable to stop the eighth. While Cromwell rallied, their counter-attacks were thwarted by Oliver Cotter and Nicola McKay in defence for Upper Clutha, however, the Red’s spirited defence kept the score to 2-0 going into half time.
After the break Oscar Crowe scored his second goal while Hugh Ragg worked his way through Cromwell’s defence to score the fourth goal of the game. This capped off a well-rounded performance from all Upper Clutha players with some great contributions and play from Hannah Wright, Lulu Petit and Beau Gordon.
