THE Camden Haven Men’s hockey team is having its best season yet since forming three years ago.
With four wins and a draw under their belt they have their eyes set on making the playoffs.
On the weekend they played the Port City Whalebone side which is just above them on the ladder.
Club president and striker Gareth Dunlop put the first goal past the keeper in the 15th minute to put the club in front.
Just before half time the club’s youngest player 14 year old Blake Hudson hit another past the Port City keeper to make it 2-0 at half time.
Father and son duo Chris and Nathan Buckmaster along with goal keeper Tim Palmer were instrumental throughout the game fighting off an attacking Port City side saving several shots at goal.
Half’s Adam, Daniel, Don Hugo, Ian Anquetil along with the team’s young talent 15 year old inner Ryan Hugo continually found opportunities to pass and pushed the ball forward.
Port City hit back with 15 minutes to go grabbing a lucky goal but that didn’t deter forwards Jay Rawson, Tony Dickson and Megan Anquetil grabbing a number of short corners for the team.
Last week’s player’s player Rob Dwyer found it hard to just watch from a supportive role on the sideline after breaking three ribs during last weekend’s game.
With five minutes to go on the clock Anquetil got a short corner to Hudson who slip through some players to flick it past the Port City Keeper making the final score 3-1 to Camden Haven.
Coach David Wells was absent for the win but will be very pleased with the result.
Next week the LUSC sponsored Camden Haven side take on the ladder leaders Port Thunder Blue Tongues on Saturday at 2pm.
