The final game of the season and with some of our team deserting us for a skiing trip (tut tut just no commitment…….) we drafted in some talented players from the lower teams. There were a couple of early scares and saves from Evo kept Marlow from scoring but once we found our stride we were dominant. Two well worked team goals were crafted turning defence into attack, the first slotted into the back of the goal by Holly Senior and the second by the experienced Dizzy. Half time and 2-0 up, nice.
Second half started as the first finished. Mrs Clark enjoyed the space she was given, I am sure she was playing full-back! However, it was Marlow who breached our goal with a deep run from their midfield players and the defence was outnumbered and the inevitable happened. Within minutes we got our two goal cushion again with a Jacs straight strike from a penalty corner and then 4-1 with a bizarre own goal but claimed by Izzy Gibson. Kirsty McCullouch wrapped up the scoring; we finished 5-1 winners. A few bottles are fizz were appropriate, promotion was sealed a number of weeks ago, but having scored 85 goals this season teams in the higher division should be looking over their shoulders.
An incredible season; great hockey, great team spirit and lots of laughs along the way. Thank you for the every present support from the groupies aka parents. We are already talking about the preparations for our next adventure.
