Two hours before push back the 2s had the prospect of starting without a keeper but Leon who had somehow slipped through the net at selection, turned up to watch missus Leon play in the preceeding ladies 3s fixture and was press-ganged into playing by your correspondent. And just as well too, since New Beccs' number one pulled off two worldies to keep out the opposition. It was a good and well-contested game but New Beccs defence was on point, with Teva starring at the back, while the midfield and frontline mounted plenty of effective forays into the opposition D. Euan Williams guesting from the threes had a great game as he rotated with Chris Jeffs and Yuval up front. The first goal was a deft flick from close range; the ball came from a Chris Baker free hit just inside the 23. It looked not to have travelled the regulation five metres but went in off an opposition stick; a defender nearly stopped the ball but it flicked up in the air and with very little pace remaining on it, Chris was able to help over the line. Chris' second goal was a trademark reverse stick from the left of the D across goal. Your correspondent is claiming an assist, running in front of the keeper and nearly getting a touch to wrong foot him. Another great result and New Beccs hold on to a spot in the top half of the table
