Ladies 3s v. Marlow 2s – 12.03.16 match report

Oxford 3s went on a goal fest on Saturday v Marlow 2s – and kept the supporters cheering as they won 12 – 1!

Marlow 2s, 4th in the league are no easy team to beat …. but when they came to Oxford Saturday – they were in for a surprise…. We played some awesome hockey during the 70 minutes with great passing and movement off the ball showing the enjoyment, commitment and team spirit that the 3s have enjoyed this season, working hard for each other, moving the ball around well…. a Captain’s dream!

We won the first half 5-1 with goals coming from Alice, Hie, Jen, Christy and Sarah S showing skill and commitment and jubilant goal celebrations.  Half time talk was just to keep going with same commitment and drive as the first half and the whole team stepped things up another level to score another 7 goals in the second half coming from Suzie, Christy 3, Hie 3. Even Katie tried to get on the score sheet dreaming she was a CF and insisting on a few assists!
