Tasman Districts Men The Boar’s
Sunday Game 1: Tasman Senior men’s team assembled in full for the first time, and came against a dogged South Canterbury team. Tasman started well and dominated the first 5 minutes, putting constant pressure on the South Canterbury goal but was unable to convert. South Canterbury scored against the run of play to go up 1-0 and although Tasman controlled the game, missed chances meant it was half way through the 3rd quarter before Tasman drew even 1-1. Tasman’s dominance was let down by a reluctance from the team to drop and negate South Canterbury’s overheads that consistently took them from deep defense straight onto attack. The South Canterbury tactic allowed them to steal another goal against play in the 4th quarter to lead 2-1, a positon that they held onto until the final whistle.
Monday Game 2: Strong words were spoken after the first game, with a no tolerance approach signaled by the coach to those that did not adhere to the game plan. The team took the positive pre-match build up and plan onto the pitch with Ben Harris pulling the trigger on a goal scoring reverse shot in the first 5 minutes. The early goal and excellent discipline by the team to stick to the plan resulted in a totally dominant performance and 6 nil victory. Jesse Forsyth, Pat Oconnor-lea and Ben Harris all scored a brace.
NHA would like to send both Teams our best wishes for the rest of the Tournament.
