3-0 Win :)
By Katie Warren
Battle of the Tempers
Ladies 1s prevailed against all the odds in Mordor aka Bodmin... Under the watchful eye of
Sauron 13 brave Devonshire lasses known as the Fellowship, tamed not only the hockey ball, but also their temperaments to fight for a 3-0 victory over Bodmin 2.
Ola Mac was first on the match report with an early green card for a stick tackle, the loss of Boromir (Ola) hit the fellowship hard, but the spirit prevailed and despite the surreal circumstances, (which often saw all 22 players on the pitch staring round in utter confusion) half time finally arrived and we were 1-0 up with a wonderful goal from Loz Skeels !!!
Our leader Frodo (Katie Warren
), bravely faced down stick tackle after stick tackle whilst providing running commentary (literally) and the second half saw the fellowship settle under the wise words of Gandalf (Tommo) and begin to bear the ring to its final destination... victory! Goals from Claire Seymour
and Pippa Jephcott
sealed the fate of the doomed Mordor Army, notwithstanding the numerous bewildered Eowyn-like stares... Bodmin’s ring was well and truly destroyed, the fellowship retreated to some truly fine match teas (mac’n’cheese) and wondered where their journeys would take them next...
Claire and Genevieve McBride
were magnificent in Middle Earth, fighting furiously for Player, but Ola took the title for resisting the will of the ring (aka keeping her sh*t) and Frodo won Ditzy for talking more and running less. The beacons are lit; OPM’s campaign continues.
