Match Reporter The Four Musketeers and Terri!

We arrived at what we thought was the hockey pitch. However all we saw was fog?!? But the good news was that we had a goalie, Nancy came out of retirement for one day only.

Going back to a formation we hadn’t seen since last season, and the luxury of having two rolling subs, we started off strong with more possession of the ball. However, the opposition snuck through and had a few breakaways which resulted in an impressive header from Nancy to keep it 0-0. Then there was a few defensive short corners which kept us on our toes but the score remained 0-0.

The one and only shot came from the centre forward, having not scored for 12 years, who with a great strike from the top D put them ahead 1-0 at half time.

Captain made a few changes leading us strongly into the second half with our heads held high, resulting in some chances on goal none of which were successful. We played much better as a unit during the second half, keeping possession, passing it around more and giving the oppo the ump
Unfortunately the whistle went too early for us leaving the score 1-0 to them.

Bring on the match at home
