The 7s had a mixed squad of 16 for today's match, made up of a variety of players who hadn't played together before. Although we managed to put some great play together, we couldn't find space in the D to shoot and were struggling to outwit our well-drilled opponents. At half time the score was 4-0 to Thame which didn't really reflect the effort put in by all the team.
After a half time debrief we went out better prepared, used more of the pitch and were better at staying in position. With some great switching we had many more chances and it looked like we would be able to claw back a few goals. Juliette in particular was excellent on the right side and broke through several times. Holly who was later awarded man of the match also had an excellent game and was vital in holding back the continuous attack by the Thame forwards. We defended well and managed to hold off any more goals in the second half until the last few minutes when two more strikes caught us all out, giving a final score of 6-0 to Thame.
Thank you to our our umpires Charlie Baggs and Emma Klenerman
