The Lines All Go Up

The club has come a long way since Sawston Men’s Hockey Club – followed shortly afterwards by the Ladies’ club – was forced in the mid-90s to relocate from the village playing fields into the city in order to play its games on the newly-mandatory astroturf surface, later changing its name to reflect its new ...

Many months down the line, an observation in hindsight about this game - this was two teams on the verge of exceptional seasons. Both won their respective leagues at a canter, South topping Division 2NW with a 20 wins, 1 draw, 0 defeats record and Stortford winning Division 1S on the back of a 18-2-1 campaign. That our girls pushed Stortford so close here is very hopeful for their Division 1 debut next campaign... whenever that eventually happens!
When Hockey does re-commence the plan is to have another installment in this friendly series (in Cambridge this time), with now Division 1N South testing themselves against a Premier Division Stortford outfit.

"Greaves J was on hand to poke into the back of the net." Poked??? Smote more like. It was a first-time thunderbolt, which was completely unsaveable. Must have nearly knocked a hole in the backboard...

OK, well, this is roughly how it went from an Umpire's perspective. 13 mins, 1-0: ball hits a Bury foot in the circle, their defence and 'keeper stop but the ball rolls to Liz who knocks it simply home (the goal very against the early run of play!). 19 mins, 2-0: Emily's first, a pacy dribble on the counter-attack. 22 mins, 2-1: Bury score from a short. 34 mins, 3-1: Anna puts a straight strike from a short just inside the far post. 38 mins, 4-1 another counter-attack sees Emily race down the right, cut in and finish. 60 mins, 5-1 Claudia finishes off after some pinball in the Bury circle.
