Match report – Saturday 12th January 2013

Match report by Nicola Jones

Flamstead v Connextions Rebels

We awoke to a bitterly cold day and to the news that Emma was poorly and therefore unable to play.  Tracy had to find a last minute replacement.  Sarah J had already agreed to help us out and Louise from the Green team stepped in at the 11th hour to play, although both might have been regretting it when the time came to take off some outer layers!

 Connexions Rebels had not had much success in the league so far this year but we knew a good win was important to try and return to third place in the league.

 The match started well, Sarah J and Nikki decided to share the GA/GS positions so that neither got too cold, but they needn’t have worried as most of the action seemed to be down at our attacking end as our solid midfield and defence ensured that most of the balls heading for Rebels’ goal were intercepted and sent straight back, being fed into the goal expertly by Tracy C and Phil.  The first quarter ended 12-4.  Encouraged by this good start, the second quarter saw a similar performance, ending 23-5.  Some great shooting by both Sarah & Nikki ensured that the goal rate continued and the solid defence was even more impenetrable with Tracy W, Louise and Becky stopping the Rebels’ attackers getting a look in and resulting in no goals at all in the third quarter, ending 33-5.  We didn’t become complacent in the 4th quarter, eleven goals were scored, Rebels did manage to score 3 goals, but the match ended with a score of 44-8.  Well played everyone, what a great game, thanks to Sarah J and Louise for playing, Natalie for umpiring and Lizzie for her support from the side.
