We won! 1-0. Fantastic.
Man of the match Jules had a brilliant game in goal. She dived, stretched and made herself an immoveable barrier time and again, at one stage surprising even herself as she tipped the goal bound ball over the bar. Time and again Tammy scared us all as she put her body on the line to keep out their best player (though her attempt at a dive for our SPLASH competition was laughable). Ant, fresh from her half marathon success, was awesome as our centre pivot and rightly claimed the goal. The forwards grew in confidence, passing well and getting a number of shots on target. Mary, turning to hockey this season after playing football for many, had a very impressive work rate. When she remembered to bring her stick with her onto the pitch she did even better! All in all it was a determined team performance against a fitter, and somewhat younger opposition. Well done.
