Oxford City vs Bristol City - 25.10.14
19 - 7 Loss
We played a blue match with a blue Bristol team.
Blue is the colour of all that we wore.
Blue was the floor and all wall was too.
Blue are the feelings when we look at that the score.
I'm blue da ba dee da ba die...
Now that's enough of that! The match didn't go quite as planned. My new crazy divisions are not going to be adopted in future and, on Thursday, Frank as threatened is going to run us ragged.
But there were some positives. Easy ones to remember were our seven goals. Alice and Damien both got a runner and a long shot, showing their versatility as well as scoring skills. Dan and Pete intercepted several key passes brilliantly. Fi had at least one shot that should have been in but somehow didn't drop. Mike had a man mountain against him but was still strong under the post. Becca and Ruth were their usual quick and crafty selves. And it should have been one more but Alice scored a free pass that was bizarrely not counted due to opposition infringement.
There were lots of moments we can be proud of from this game but we didn't quite come together as the confident and determined team we were against Gloucester. Even so, huge thanks to Frank for coaching and Damien for stepping in to play at short notice. Well done to Mike and Fi for fine regional débuts.
Scorers: Alice (2), Damien (2), Pete (1), Becca (1), Jo (1)
