GCC Veterans start on a positive note
GCC veterans through a brace from Philip Fernandes got off to a positive start in this year’s Diamond Mineral Water International Indoor Hockey Festival when they defeated Old Old Fort 2-1 yesterday, at the National Gymnasium.
The Bourda Blues were the first to enter the scoresheet when brothers Alan and Philip Fernandes combined beautifully to give their team the lead.
Alan playing on the right flank delivered an exquisite pass to Philip, who then cracked a powerful shot past Old Old Fort’s Audwin Graham stationed between the uprights.
However, Old Old Fort were able to gain the equaliser shortly after through a neat sequence of exchanges between Ivor Thompson and Mark George which culminated with the latter collecting the final pass, before beating the advancing goalkeeper Dwayne Scott to his left.
The half time whistle sounded with no team able to take the ascendancy.
On the resumption, both teams produced brilliant passages of play, before Philip Fernandes ended the deadlock with a wonderful piece of mastery after receiving a pass from the back delivered by Alex Fiedtkou.
Fernandes collected the pass, worked his way down the right wing, faked a pass, before lashing home from the tightest of angles past a surprised Graham.
Old Old Fort was denied an equaliser shortly after when former USA player Peter Jones made a brilliant stop from a penalty corner with the advancing Scott well beaten.
The game ended with no addition to the scores and GCC gaining full points.
Results in the other matches will be published in the next issue.
