Bristol & West 2 [7-2] University Of Bristol 3
Half-baked match report from a late Todd Leddy!!!
This week it was Bristol Uni’s turn to take on the mighty Bristol and West 2’s. West were looking to build on a strong performance from the previous week and keep their good form going to push up the league. For most, the ordinary meet time of an hour before the 12pm push back was duly noted and abided too. However, come 11:30am and a slightly worried skipper disturbed Todd’s restful Saturday morning saying “we are heading to the pitch from the changing rooms now”. At which point Todd realised “Oh F**k, I’m playing hockey today!!”. As a result, this match report I’m afraid will not cover the first 20-25 mins of the game. Though, I am told West had a great start and we were 2-0 up within the first 20 mins. Who scored those goals I couldn’t tell you, I wasn’t there.
West went into halftime 3-1 after Bristol Uni got one back following a well worked short. The second half followed a similar pattern to the first. With Max and Lus terrifying their defence, Bristol Uni couldn’t handle Max’s pace and every time Lus got in the D he seemed to score, even from the baseline!! Our domination was highlighted by Nevin’s wild run into the Bristol Uni half, unfortunately for Nevin he got so excited he slipped and gave the ball away, too embarrassed to get up he didn’t move for a good 5 minutes, leaving the defence vulnerable. In the end Bristol and West’s dominance told and we came through 7-2 winners, with Lus scoring a fantastic double hattrick.
MOM: Lus – for all round good play up top and a double hat-trick.
DOD: Surprisingly close between Nevin's tumble and Todd. Todd came out the winner as you can expect.
