The Beauty & The Beasts

Following a bruising encounter against Avondale 1.5’s, the stats are ready…

May 18th Stats

A plucky 9 made their way to Putney to do battle in the Surrey League – and battle it was!! The game was always close with only a goal or two in it – had our finishing in the 2nd quarter been a bit better, we could have potentially won it – however there was to be no happy ending to this particular¬†fairy tale. The beasts in question were Phil “wobble” Richards and Si “What did I do?” Gateley – who both got three majors and in Si’s case, his “first ever wrapping”… This left us with a bare bones 7 for the majority of the 4th quarter, and Zac admirably stepped up to the plate. As the defence dropped off and debated whether or not to press out, Zac launched a looping shot into the far top corner – his first goal for the club and a real beauty!! Our nemesis on this occasion was some particularly busy refereeing – but on the whole we are starting to look a bit more competent!! (Heaven forbid!!)

Man of the Match this week went to Rob “put on a show for his Mrs.” Loveless who chipped in with 4 goals and one of the most casual one on ones you will see. His performance was likely boosted by our travelling support – Rob treating Mrs. Loveless to a romantic evening out involving the Narwhals in speedos – a lucky lady!!

Moment of the match unanimously went to Zac this week. The shot was a delight and it was a great way to kick-off his goal stats. His goal tally for the season is now better than Finch Snr… It’s now clear who the better polo player in the family is… Special mention for Zac as well who took “tight marking” to a new level, practically sitting on top of his allocated attacker. Good job!!

Fluffer this week is shared between Si “tap and up” Gateley and Phil “Putney is such a long drive from Woldingham” Richards. A number of voters decided to vote for both players – my preference would be to award to Phil for his massive wobble, but votes are votes… As a special treat, here is a picture of the inaugural WT Narwhals Fight Club…

Careful John Holah – they are coming for your title!! Special mention to Matt “no goals” Finch for letting in a lot of back shots…

Stats wise, Nick closes the gap on Bedford to 9 goals, whilst Phil pushes his way back into the green zone. Lets see you back at some games Oggy!! John “Fighty” Holah stays at the top of the Majors chart with Gary and Myself in hot pursuit. Having had 2 maddies in a row now, I am looking to get out of the rut – expect lots of goals in the next game… NAAAAATTTT
