After some hectic weekends this weekend only had a few events on Sunday. First we had U6 practice together with Kom og vær med!. This morning we had 8 kids and their parents. We will keep on going two weeks more, and next Sunday the kids will be given brand new t-shirts – donated by Kort hjørne 1944, Gentofte Hockey Klub’s support club.
The only game of the weekend was the mens that played against Slagelse. Gentofte were trying to keep the unbeaten streak going. Slagelse came with a very young team and with a full team and strong bench Gentofte decided to keep the pace high through the hole first half.
Gentofte started out with pressure around the Slagelse circle, but even with some very big chances – that were missed – it was Slagelse who punished Gentofte first on a counter where both defense and midfield were to high up on the pitch. 0-1. Gentofte came strong back and got back in the rhythm. First Gentofte scored after some great combination over the right side with Niels Haugaard in centre.
But again, Slagelse caught Gentofte of guard on a counter. To take the lead 1-2.
The last 15 minutes the game went from side to side, where both teams had a lot of chances. However, it was Gentofte who pulled away with two goals. First from BC on the after play on a penalty corner and the David with a tomahawk going up in the net over the keepers shulder – a real beauty! 3-2 at half time.
In the break Gentofte talked about closing the gabs behind med midfield when pressing forward and about keeping position and composure on the ball and the game.
Gentofte came stronger out to the second half and well deserved that the mens pulled further away first another goal from Niels and then from Sandby to 5-2. Gentofte had multiple monster opportunities but they we thrown away. Slagelse kept on producing chances, but the were taking care of by goalie Asger, who player yet another great game.
The last 10 minutes Gentofte slacked. The started to the things wrong and lack of tackles and support for each other meant that Slagelse could score twice, the last goal with 10 sec to go.
In the end Gentofte won 5-4 and can now look toward the last game of the fall to hope for an unbeaten fall.
Here we go!
