Yankalilla had a day to forget in hockey on the weekend losing their men and the women matches.

The Yankalilla Men lost to Victor Grey 7-nil and the Women lost to Victor Blue 1-0.  

In the Men, Victor Grey 7 defeated Yankalilla 0 and it was tough day on the pitch for the Yankalilla players.

After forfeiting last week’s game due to lack of players, Yankalilla had reserves this week. 

This was not enough for them to match the definitive play shown by Victor Grey who seemed to find the net time and again, despite the brilliant goal keeping by Aaron Khalarian for Yankalilla.

Yankalilla were unable to get any flow in their game and were constantly defending Grey’s attacks.

In the Women Victor Blue 1 defeated Yankalilla 0.

Yankalilla were hard pressed on Saturday coming up against a team, Victor Blue, who haven’t lost a game all season.

Considering Yankalilla were playing two players short they did extremely well to hold out Victor who got their one and only score five minutes before half time.

It was definitely a defensive game for Yankalilla, but they were able to penetrate their circle.

However with all their work, Yankalilla were unable to finish off with a goal. Yankalilla kept Victor scoreless in the second half in a very tough and tightly fought game. It was a great game of hockey and a match which will give much confidence to the Yankalilla players.
