Stats update #4 of the year reporting a decidedly unconvincing 12-8… no 11-9… no 10-7… ummm… victory over London Orca. Apologies for any inaccuracies here, due to numerical dyslexia, the match sheet is very difficult to comprehend. Basically we won – just.
Yesterday’s game saw the return of the Lash Monster – we’ll see you in six months mate. Somewhat regrettably however, despite the fact he hadn’t been in the pool for quite a long time, he was notably a lot less worse than the rest of us… A close result, but Lash is Man of the Match for the game… we might as well all give up.
Generally I think our lack of fitness was the biggest obstacle to our game yesterday. We were let off the hook by some good saves from Lash and Nick’s arrival in the 2nd Quarter when he contributed 5 goals. Phil again struck up a strong relationship with the wood work, banging it all night long. He did however produce the moment of the match – a “superb” bouncing shot from half-way to add to our tally 5 seconds before half-time. This is Phil’s 3rd moment of the match… what a super star… NAAAAAAATTTT
Fluffer this week was a hotly contested 3 way. Eventually the award is given to Matt “We are playing in blue right?” Finch for some extremely good passes to the opposition. The finest being a fantastic pass to an unmarked Orca player who was about 5 meters out. Best pass of the night I think!!
Things to take away:
– Nick has now scored a third of our goals… nailed on for his 3rd golden hand?
– Gary continues to be “BRUTAL”. Some goals are needed there Mr. Bowen
– Sarah records her first Maddy of the year
– Finchy is getting very good at fluffing – form an orderly queue!!
Seriously though, lets try and make an effort to get to training and build up some fitness. We know we will struggle for subs for the near future, which means we have to be fitter. It was really disappointing to see Orca out swimming and looking generally (aerobically) fitter than us. Big effort lads.
