This week we we got two new players onto the field. Torbjorn (Torbs) is some kind of Anglo-Swedish mix and comes to us from Oxford Hawks. Finn continues the Hamburg goes on Summer holiday to play for Rye theme and plays with HTHC in said city.

On a warm day we faced a strong NYC team. It was fairly obviously going to be a defensive game on our part and we set up with that in mind. We came under pressure from the outset and the first few minutes were uncomfortable. If you’re the underdog, you need to score first and we duly did that with Finn scoring on his debut with a diving shot following a rebound in the circle. The defence held strong for the most of the half NYC drew level following a minor error that was punish. However, we shortly went up the other end to go ahead again following Sunny winning a penalty stroke.

Ahead at half a great result whatever game plan that was forced upon us, was largely working. early in the second half Finn created a chance for himself that went very narrowly wide. Decent chances from there on out were increasingly hard to come by as the heat began t influence the game. NYC eventually put in three goals, although only went ahead with around 5 minutes to go. Much of the credit for holding them out for so long, should go to Olli. Michael Caine was seen nearby sat in a tank, muttering something about Bridges…
