City SERL 18 – Tornadoes 27
Our match against Tornadoes 2 was aided by some supporters that came to
cheer the team on, and their energy helped us into a small lead in the
first half 14-12. In the second half we seemed to lack energy and Tornadoes
became more confident in their shooting, we quickly fell behind not being
able to keep up with their scoring power. The match ended a disappointing
City SERL 27 – Tigers SERL 8
After our disappointing match against tornadoes the week before we came to
win this match with determination. The match started great and we went 10-0
up in the first 15 minutes, after forcing the Tigers time out we kept our
cool and continued to keep scoring while adapting to their new strategy.
The second half wasn’t quite as much of a goal fest suggesting fitness as
something to work on. The match ended 27-8 coming very close to the
optimistic 30 goal target set by Carla before the match.
City SERL 24 – Bearsted 14
This week end we had our final SERL match before Christmas, and it was
against Bearsted 2 a team we had already played this season. The match
started very well (bar the first goal) and we were quickly leading 10-1, we
kept our momentum into the end of the half finishing 12-3. The second half
began less well with Bearsted getting their goals in, but we matched their
scoring with our own strong attack which seemed to come alive for both teams
in the last 5 minutes, final score 24-14 to us. Thanks to Andy for coaching, Flora for subbing and Chris West for doing the shot clock.
