Northwood 1st Team Hockey Outscore Glenwood High School

Northwood 1st team played Glenwood 1st team in an incredibly well played and respectful game.

Northwood started off with great tempo applying lots of pressure, and despite Glenwood’s strong defense, Northwood managed to start a well worked goal from a cross from Liam McIlroy for Captain Cody Van Breemen to get on the end of it.

For the last 15 minutes Glenwood applied lots of pressure, and their efforts paid of with a fantastic ball into the circle deflecting into the goal.

Keeper Ryan Whitehurst, having a stormer of a game, kept Glenwood from scoring.

The second half was a very well worked performance from Northwood scoring 4 goals to win 5-1.

A great goal (deflection from out of no-where!) from J Cowel got the team fired up.

Another 3 goals from a wonderful team effort from all the boys finished the game off.
