After seven long months away from league hockey a few of us confessed to pre match butterflies. But once we got on the pitch the pre match nerves quickly left us.
We took the lead with Bryony opening up the score line within the first few minutes. Martha added a second goal.Bryony rounded of the first half with her second goal taking us to at half time 3-0 lead.
Sadly the first half saw the first ice pack of the season neededwith Ava being hit on the back of her head by a ball off Bea’s stick. Ava is fine, but this did earn Bea her first rosette on the donkey star chart.
We started off the second half pretty much as we had started with Bryony adding to her goal tally, Trinity was hot on her heels scoring one and not to be out done the skipper got the ball behind the goalie, taking us to a 6-0 win.
Joint winners of girl the game were Trinity and Megan K-E, Trinity for maximising her scoring opportunities and Meganfor making the left wing her own. This was Megan’s first game with the Fives and we all agreed that she had a very impressive start. We would also like to thank Nicki, the latest recruit to the Fab Fives. Nicki, it’s great to have you on board.
A strong and positive start to the 2020/21 season!
