The hockey match between the WBS 1st Xl and the OWBA was a heated affair. Yes, we had balmy conditions and the searing heat certainly highlighted the old girl’s lack of match fitness (!); however, the high level of competitiveness also led to some feisty (tongue in cheek) verbal exchanges between players and umpires.
It really was a great game played with a friendly but intense atmosphere. The WBS girls dominated throughout most of the first half and were left frustrated when they missed a few good chances to score. Izzy Moore (00-13 G) finally broke the deadlock and took the old girls to 1-0, much to the delight of her team! Very quickly, however, the 1st Xl equalised with a good goal from Beth Keech. The play continued at a fast paced, end to end battle and then the 1st Xl took the lead with a goal scored from short corner scuffle in the ‘D’.
Despite both sides tiring in the last few minutes of the game, the intensity grew and culminated in a sneaky goal from Susie Hill (00-10 G) in the last 6 seconds!!!!
