BHL Wrap Up – Round 12

Last Saturday, BHL 1 was first to score 12 minutes in when Oscar Charlesworth propelled the ball from the right side, high into the net straight past the Norths keeper. Six minutes later the rapidly improving, Billy Bradford pounced on a penalty corner variation and shot a tomahawk into the net. In the 22nd minute the Irishman Kevin Mullins achieved the first of his two goals following a scramble in the Norths defensive circle with Labrador racing to a four-nil lead. Norths took advantage of a moment of weakness in our defence and scored two late consolation goals before Oscar Charlesworth again converted a great strike leaving the Norths defence floundering. Labrador finished with a 5-2 win, holding 5th on the ladder with only two points separating first and fifth place. Congratulations to Oscar Charlesworth for being voted Best on Ground, presented by David Reardon and Aaron Weiss receiving the Stix Guard Award from Ethan White.

It is a home game this Saturday with Labrador going up against Queensland University in Retro Round. Dust off your vintage gear and head on down to support the teams with BHL 2 playing at 2.30pm and BHL 1 at 4pm.

BHL Wrap Up – Round 11

BHL 1 faced Saint Andrews Hockey Club last Saturday going down 4-3, placing them 5th on the ladder. Saint Andrews scored their first goal after three minutes, followed by a penalty corner just before half time. After some good team lead up play, John Mullins slammed the ball high into the net to get Labrador back in the game with a great high one-time flick. Saint Andrews went to a 3-1 lead following another PC conversion with play see-sawing from end to end and Kevin Mullins slamming the ball home to get Labrador within reach to 3-2. A 50m overhead lob got Saint Andrews out of trouble and saw them capitalise with the score moving to 4-2. Labrador threw everything into attack, resulting in a penalty conversion by Blaze player Tyler Gaddes, who slammed the ball high into the net past the Saints defence, taking the final score to 3-4. BHL 1 will take on front runners, Norths at the University of Queensland in a tough challenge to stay in the top 5 on June 22.

Congratulations to Ethan White for being awarded the Best Time Pub Group Best on Ground as well as the Guzman y Gomez Stix Guard in a rare double, presented by Will Powell.

With six players backing up from BHL 1, the BHL 2 boys put in a valiant effort, narrowly going down to Saint Andrews Hockey Club 2-1 at the State Hockey Centre last Saturday. During the last minute of the third quarter, Labrador turned over possession while attacking in the Saints D30. Saint Andrews hit a 50-meter pass to a lone striker near our DC and converted a 1 on 1 with keeper Christensen. Labrador piled on the pressure in the fourth quarter, eventually pulling one goal back via Kaleb Benney. BHL 2 slides to 6th on the ladder and will face Norths at the University of Queensland on June 22 in a must win game to return to the top 5.

Congratulations to Hudson Keeble on receiving Dominos Crestwood Plaza Best on Ground and Aston Merrell awarded the Guzman y Gomez Stix Guard, presented by Ben Stockill.

BHL Wrap Up – Round 10

Saturday June 1 was the day BHL 2 momentously defeated benchmark team, Eastern Suburbs Hockey Club. Brad Hughes put the Stix one up with a PCA conversion in the first half and doubled our lead with another drag flick in the second half. The highlight of the game was the Stix’s defensive unit, condensing space and keeping Easts scoreless, even as they held territorial advantage for much of the game. Dominos Crestwood Plaza BHL 2 Best on Ground went to Oscar Charlesworth and Guzman y Gomez BHL 2 Stick Guard awarded to Riley Wain.

The next BHL 1 and BHL 2 home games are on June 29 versus University of Queensland, and it is Retro Round. Dust off your retro LHC gear and stay tuned for further details!

BHL Wrap Up – Round 9

BHL 2 executed their skills in the best fashion against Valley Hockey Club last Saturday scoring 13 goals and conceding zero. BHL 1 kept their goal clean while putting 7 past the Valley keeper. This places BHL 2 in 6th position and BHL 1 in 4th on the BHA ladders at the half-way mark of the season.

It was great to see the squad celebrating Ethan White and Luca Brown’s 100 BHL 1 games milestone. Daniel Evans was also awarded the Dominos Crestwood Plaza Best on Ground for BHL 2 with his hat trick and quality attacking circle outcomes.

BHL Wrap Up – Round 8

Congratulations to the BHL Stix teams for achieving two big wins on Saturday against Kedron Wavell HC at the State Hockey Centre. BHL 1 were up first and racked up a 7-nil scoreline. Marshall Brown and Ethan White (playing his 100th 1st grade game) shared the Player’s Player Best on Ground Award. Luke Tyne received the Stix Guard recognition.
With players absent at the South Coast School Boys championships, BHL 2 needed six double ups from BHL 1. They took Kedron to the sword scoring in all quarters with the final score 9-nil. Brad Hughes with his hat trick of goals was awarded BOG and Finn Robinson who backed up from 1s and ran himself to a standstill was awarded the Stix Guard. BHL 1 is now in 5th position and BHL 2, 7th on the ladder.
We encourage all supporters to attend our home games this coming Saturday, May 25 when we take on the Valley HC and cheer them on to climb the points ladder. Also be witness to the special presentations that will take place prior to the BHL 1 pass back, celebrating 100 BHL 1 games.
