After a disappointing game last week against Brom Becks we were raring to go with fresh legs against Remnants. Poor Noeleen returned from the sunny climes of Australia and into sub zero degrees in Beckenham.

The game started well with everyone in high spirits with a very even game. Players were passing well; and attacking and defending excellently. With superb play from the midfield, who brought the ball into the D, Kim crossed it smoothly to Noeleen. She was in a perfect position to whack it cleanly into the goal. In the process, Kim whacked the goalie just to make sure it was in.

We had a lengthy discussion last week about ' what is 5 yards?" and Harriet still had no clue, therefore she was green carded by grumpy Kempy. Don't worry he also green carded the opposition in the second half!

Unfortunately Remnants equalised just before half-time from a short corner even though our defence tried to stop them at every turn. One goal was disallowed after it came off of one of our players in the D.

Late in the second half Remnants managed to find their way into our D, and the ball ricocheted round like a pinball machine hitting Tracie's stick, and then an oppo stick, then lastly found its way into the goal, which unfortunately gave them the lead! But we kept our heads held high and still fought hard until the end.

Bring on the next match in January - we are ready for them!
