D is for Defence

Morning all – welcome to the latest stats update following our narrow defeat by Kingston:


Aug 3rd Stats


Our defeat to Kingston (9-8) represents our 8th defeat in a row – but in all of these games we have lost by no more than 4 goals at any time. We are so close to breaking this run, and just that little bit of extra effort (training) can help us break through!! We played pretty well on Wednesday, especially with our man-down defence.  We even successfully defended our goal whilst keeper Matt “fists of fury” Finch sat through his major. I think we were beaten based on the number of subs – our tiredness stopped us attacking properly – so lets try and get some more numbers down to games, we shouldn’t be struggling to get 8 players together…


MoM: this went to Finchy this week for 2 quarters of top keeping and two quarters of goal scoring – picking up 3 goals and 2 majors. Finch broke his recent form of bouncing shots over the goal by actually putting them away this time!!

Moment: This went to the whole team this week for our superb man down defence. Of the 7 man-downs we had, we only conceded 1 goal. Top effort!! It looks as if we have managed to remember what to do again!!

Fluffer: This went to me this week for missing an opportunity to score (and level) with 20 seconds to go. Having “brilliantly” turned my man and got through on goal, I got cramp just as I went to shoot – skying the shot and then proceeding to cry like a girl. I can only apologise!!


As for the stats – Nick’s goal scoring has slowed now, with only 4 goals in the last 3 games. If he wants to hit 100, he needs to pick his game up. Finch launches himself up the table with his 3 goals this week, whilst Tim and I look to try and break our tie and catch up with the leading pack. The Catas-Trophy is still hotly contended, and I think Rob might have died again – either that or it’s his stinky chat I can smell…


Forza Narwhali!!
