Match Report

Well, what a way to end the season. Whatever happens next we went out on a high, kicking and screaming! DERBY 3RDS 2 - BUXTON 1 Yippee! We won a game! For the second time this season we triumphed, and it feels great. To prove how seriously we were taking this match, the pre season chat included : pet insurance, Sue's visit to the baby ballet, and joy of joys, the rank interior of Kerry and Rachel's kit bags!! Now the season grinds to a halt hopefully both will receive a good clear out and wash. Odders entered stage left as the discussion moved from parental ashes to Avenue Q! That was an eye opener for sure. I thought it was a kids show!!!! Surely, someone will mention hockey soon. Out on the pitch we warmed up with Jules entering the arena rather the worse for wear, to find oranges in her kit bag from two weeks ago. Oh joy! The game was an even hard fought battle. They scored first when our marking went astray. Steph equalised after a great passing move up the right initiated by Kerry (the part timer), and Ella. The first half really was Buxton's but the second half was ours. We overcame a number of scares but stood strong, and Sue finished another good attacking move to put us ahead. Great day. Well played all. We deserved this one. Thanks to Skully and Caroline for helping us out. Also to Dan and Sue for umpiring. It was good to have so many people on the side-line led by Roz and Naomi. Also really good to see Holly and baby Thomas at his first hockey match. MOM votes : Rachel and Steph 1 each. Val 2, Ella 3 but Skully took the glory after a powerful game with 5. See you all at tournament on April 6th. Val
