The last game was on the Villanova turf against Islanders 2s. It was a very early start for everyone, needing to be there for a 9am start was no fun and the effort was appreciated and rewarded with a win. We also welcomed Mike for his first game in Yellow. Mike is out at Princeton and is from Australia.
After a couple of hours of early morning driving, we had a good first half. The surface is very different from our usual Columbia games and both teams struggled to adjust. To come out of that with a 4-0 lead and not really giving our opposition any decent chances was a great effort. Mike started with 3 goals in his first game. Two short corner strikes and an impressive reverse stick shot into the roof. Benji scored the other with a now customary deflection, using a quick free hit from Nico.
The second half was somewhat disjointed. Oli coming up with decent saves from the numerous corners that were conceded. No further goals for either team and the defence can be happy with a clean sheet. Two points now between 2nd to 5th place.
