Same opposition, same result
By edward simpson
Outgunned and outplayed, TRR M3's lost to a strong Trinity 1st XI
Well thankfully my memory of the match and the events leading up to it are fading fast...
Fair play to Findo who received two cry off's before we played Trinity, both of whom had been in good goal scoring form the day before.
Thanks to Sam C and Arthur for helping us out at short notice.
We managed to work out how to get front pitch watered, an effective warm up, although their seemed to be a resigned feel about it.
Any way match started, within five minutes dreadful errors and defensive mistakes cost us as Trinity scored two simple goals, from there on in the more we tried to get into the game the more we gifted opportunities to the oppo. Trinity were a strong side, who when they had the ball never gave it away, where as we soon as we had possession we lost it or passed the ball to them, or were tackled, meant that we really didn't show up for this match, 0-4 at the half time break.
Poor old Mac was in the wars again, getting hit on the head in front of the umpire... with Scott C's words of encouragement, sorry, 'were all soft, ...soft...SOFT' 2nd half was to be for pride at least give them a game... Thankfully Ben decided to finally show, late in the first half, he did make a difference, and the second half was a much closer affair, Trinity and TRR getting a host of shorties, we put two drag flicks straight at their keeper, we lost the second half 1-2 - please see DOD for more! Final score was 1-6 an exact deja vu of previous match V Trinity except in the first match we scored first, and on Sunday we Scored last!
MOM - Sorry cant remember who scored, wasn't our best day, so I know Teamer has voted me MOM (thank you for casting the one vote - although this has provided much merriment to Ritchie and Scott C!) but my MOM goes to Hinds.
DOD - Continuing on from yesterdays boost of Jugs prior to club dinner (even if you are not attending you need to give your Jug fines/cash to Findo, Pete, Me or someone who is attending), if not you will be fined in er double your Jug fines... Ah yes back to DOD for three goals between his pads DOD is Ed S - and yes I will buy my Jug or two...
