12 kids from both Gentofte and Copenhagen Hockey Club (KH) made it to Kalundborg Hockey Club (KHK) on Saturday. As usual we started with joint warm up and a few different exercises. This was led by some of Kalundborgs talented youth trainers.
After the warm up, we played 4 matches of 10 minutes – 2 matches against each of the two teams. Since we only had 5 players, we played without goalkeeper and substitutions. First match against KHK was very close, the young talents really worked the best they’d learned and finished with a win 1-0 (goal by Elin). In the next match we played KH, who had brought a goalie. However, this was not a problem for our players, and we ended with a 2-0 win (goal by Casper and Elin). After a short break, it was time for the second round. Third match was against KHK. Again it was a very close match, but this time it was KHK who won, 1-0. Last match the team was back on track and again we won 2-0 against KH (goal by Casper and Elin).
Since both matches between KH and KHK ended draw, Gentoftes super cool U8 kids finish as the winners of the Christmas-matchday in Kalundborg. The day finished with diplomas for everyone, for making the day a great hockey experience.
Thanks to Meike, Elin, Thor, Storm og Casper for playing – you are all super cool! Thanks to all the parents for driving all the way to Kalundborg.
Also thanks to Kalundborg Hockey Club for arranging the day and providing coffee, cake, juice and diplomas for everyone. We are already looking forward to the next matchday in Slagelse on January 27th.
Merry Christmas to all on and around the U8 team!
