A combined squad of Ladies’ 6s and 7s took on Oxford on Saturday. For the first half, the sides were evenly matched. Becky M-W scored the first goal from a great strike. Then an Oxford foot on the line prevented a goal. We were awarded a penalty stroke which Dette Wagerfield converted beautifully.
At half time, we reviewed our strengths and weaknesses and resolved to do better, but it was not to be. Oxford came back even stronger and managed to score where we could not. So, the final score was 2-5 to them.
Still, it was only a friendly and it was lovely to be playing in the sun. Everyone played well but we were not used to each other. This can only improve with time.
