BAC 0 – Cirencester 7


Written By: Sledger

Are you sitting comfortably, then I shall begin.

For the benefit of Bish…….…Once upon a time there was a ladies hockey team called BAC and they played in red.  On a drizzly morning at Abbeywood our opponents this week were Cirencester.

We were feeling confident on the back of our performances from the previous two weeks but we knew it was going to be a tough encounter.

A lunch time start saw BAC arrive at the Uni pitch hungry but still buzzing from last week’s result. Even Red still had a smile on her face despite her car being rammed by a swiftly reversing netball player whilst supporting BAC2 in the earlier match. Due to weddings, work and holidays the team looked a little different this week and we welcomed WP back from injury and Netty and Bryon for their first foray into North League. The Uni umpire had not turned up so a stand in took charge of the whistle – more on that later!

It was a nervous start to the morning for BAC – first league match of the 2017 season back in the North Division. Warm up drills were carried out, tactics run through and before we knew it the whistle went.

This week we took a drive to sunny Weston-Super-Mare for the last friendly before the league starts. 

With a livelier than usual warm up – the Backstreet Boys and Tupac spurring us all on, we made a good start to the game.  Keeping possession and spreading the ball around, we soon found ourselves 1-0 up, goal courtesy of Tinny.
