Ladies 3rd XI turn on the style
By Sophia Powell
A hockey spectacle away at Stratford
Ladies' 3s travelled through the rain clouds to arrive at the end of the rainbow at Stratford's superb astro - bathed in sunshine.
The quality of play matched the weather and whilst a slower paced game the standard of skill was excellent. The team linked well and throughout the first half we were impressive and dominant. We went in to half time at 0-0.
With support from three excellent Stratford juniors we came out of the blocks and very soon went two up. We were dominant and classy until the last ten minute when tiredness caught up with us. We forgot to use the ball, allowed Stratford to close us down and after relentless pressure, we let a goal in.
The game ended 2=1 to Bournville. We can rightly be proud of our effort, quality and result.
