The Rockhoppers travelled to Liverpool on Saturday 1st October for the second round of the Div 3 British League. 11 players made the journey north for two days of games.
The first match saw us take on Welsh Wanderers in a very close match. The game looked promising for the Rockhoppers with a 4-2 lead at the close of the 3rd quarter. But our strong opposition came back in the final quarter to win by one goal, final score 5-6.
The second game on Saturday afternoon was against Sunderland, with a wonderful performance by all players. Vicky, Laura and Michaela all scored 3 goals each, with a final score of 12-6. An amazing finish to Day 1 for the team.
Our final game of the weekend took place on Sunday afternoon against Hucknall. It was a tough first half, with lots of shots on goal but little success for the Penguins, and Hucknall took the lead with a half time score of 1-3. Strong defence and better luck in front of goals saw a better performance in the second half. Final quarter goals from Laura, Nori and Michaela, and some great saves by Bron in the goal, made for an exciting game, with a final score of 7-7.
Well done girls, a great weekend! Off to Basingstoke in two weeks time for matches to decide our position on the ladder before the league splits for the rest of the season.
