S6C continued their strong start to the season with a well-fought win against a Devizes team with some talented players. In a changed lineup from the previous game, Salisbury Hockey superstar Ben Green was given a chance in between the sticks and Dylan Gilchrist and Harry Grannell were given starts after starting on the bench in the previous game.
In the first minute of the game Reece Tanner continued his record of scoring in every appearance for college with a strong finish into the bottom corner. Reece scored again in the first 10 minutes after a whipped corner from captain Sam Webb. Devizes came back into the game after some miscommunication at the back and a dominant 15 minutes from their midfield, 2-2. S6C took the lead again after a pin point free kick from Sam Webb (which can be found on the new S6C sport instagram account @sport_s6c). Devizes equalised again to take the game to 3-3 before Reece sealed his hat trick to go in at half time with a 4-3 lead.
The second half was a one sided affair with the game finishing 6-3. The goals came once again from Reece Tanner and Sam Webb. Highlights from this half included Ben Green catching every ball in a dominant display, and some outrageous tekkerz from impact sub and fan-favourite Haydyn Waters. S6C will have to wait until after christmas for their next fixtures with tough games coming up against Bishops Wordsworth and the Commonwealth School. This game also saw S6C sporting a new puma match kit sponsored by Deliveroo.
