Reading Ladies 4′s 1 – Maori Vamps 3By Reading Hockey Club • Jan 20th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports
Saturday 18th January
Saturday’s match was a novel experience in many ways.
First, we were delighted to arrive at the club and discover that the average age of the opposition was marginally older than ours. Secondly, we didn’t use a single ice pack throughout the 70 minutes. And thirdly, we had a particularly good first half and were actually leading 1-0 (goal Tracy) for some considerable time.
I think our extended team talk in the changing room before the game (it was raining) was significant, with many players getting very excited that we had decided to introduce inners into our formation.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable match with stand-out performances from ‘men of the match’ Karen and Shakila. Comic interludes were provided by Amanda M-B and Heidi who somehow contrived to fall over with no help from anyone.
