This week BAC welcomed both Blockley and the mini-Beast from the East. Our warm up was carried out right in the middle of a blizzard (the author may be using poetic licence here) and we enjoyed the picturesque scenes as the snow came down.

Waking up in South Kensington was by far the strangest start to a hockey day! So after a taxi, a train and a drive Tinny and I arrived at Royal Wootton Bassett (RWB) – 10 mins before everyone else. #bragging. Anyway, the dreary grey day was not stopping BAC, who all turned up in good determined spirits! So after a warm up and a look on in envy as we watched them move their goals with ease, we were ready to start!

Hereford 1 – BAC 2

So today BAC take on top of the table Hereford. After a long car journey, the warm up was a nice opportunity to stretch our legs!

BAC started well from the whistle, stopping a Hereford break in the first couple of minutes, and pushing them back up the pitch. We charged into the opposition D, and the shot went ride. It was a good start nonetheless. The play for the next 10 mins or so, was pretty evenly spread, with both side getting the ball, and pressing forward. Hereford were looking the better team as BAC were finding it difficult to control the ball on the unfamiliar pitch. Hereford were breaking up the pitch, and having had a few shots, and a few saves by the BAC keeper, they were not giving in. They intercepted the ball  on the halfway line, charged forward into the BAC D, and had a shot across the BAC keeper and scoring in the right hand corner.

Another late push back for BAC, luckily Maz came fully equipped this week. The warm up began with Jason Donavan, then Bros (see I have done my 80’s homework) and then a lot of talk about Mavis! Sally don’t get emotional thinking about it.
