L2A: Windsor 0 Reading 3By Reading Hockey Club • Dec 5th, 2008 • Category: L2A, Match Reports
There is a slight disadvantage to managing 2 games of hockey in a weekend with much of the same players in each, creates a bit of a difficulty remembering the Saturday game!
The 2as almost started in darkness this weekend with a 3pm pushback on a very cold, windy and incredibly noisy Windsor Boys School pitch. Having not played any of the Windsor sides in the last few years it made them a bit of an unknown entity (yes I used a dictionary!). The 2as had the luxury of a manager for the day with me only being good enough to run the bench these days! The 2as came out well playing some nice hockey, was important for Reading to get on the score sheet and mean it this week after last week’s rather crazy performance at the University. And that they did, with Laura Letchford grabbing her first goal of the season for the 2as. Some more good play from Reading left Windsor wanting, there where a few scary moments when Windsor did break through. Reading held out with some great defensive work and great goalkeeping from Grace scoring 2 more and finishing the game 3-0 victors.
Really pleased that the 2as are back to winning ways and looking good, and they will have to work even harder next week as they face League leaders Rover Oxford away.
