I think the score line says it all - a fantastic match showcasing some stunning hockey!
To fill in the details…most of the team turned up on time apart from our most glamorous comrade, Miss Hannah Muncey, who turned up with four minutes until play, hiding her game face beneath some dark sunglasses - cue an overwhelming Lemon win!
The man of the match was new player, Emily, who worked hard, kept attacking and played with conviction throughout!
The match started with Royston taking first pushback and showing off some slick passing, putting some early pressure on the South side. However, it didn't take long for us to work out our positions and begin to fight back. From then on, South took the game by force with the forwards and mids delivering the numerous goals into the back of the net, and the defence extinguishing any breakaway attempts.
The highlights were:
Izzy taking half of the goal share with six goals to add to her tally
Our new teammates brought home four goals between them (thank you Alice, Annie and Katie)
Eimear also snuck one in and Katie gave us a picture perfect demo of how to dribble the ball across the top of the D and slam it into the net
Lauren made a return to the pitch(side) and managed the subbing with finesse
Loopy, doing the 'treble' in goal for the 1s, 2s and 4s, took a well-earned break for most of the match
Katie avoided lemon, despite losing her purse (I believe it was found at her house)
The press worked really well today and we even tried some 'back and round', which almost worked (we can't be perfect)
Emma-Rose has become the 3D Queen! (although she did forget where Cantabs was!)
All in all, a fantastic day!
