The 1s fought hard and had fun today against a strong Blues team. Although the final score was 15-7 to Blues, the team came away on a high with plenty to feel positive about – possession was roughly even despite the score suggesting otherwise. Well done to all who played.
Two dates for your diary:
8th December 2016 – our final training before Christmas (there will be lots of Xmas themed fun!) and 9th December – Xmas Social, details to follow!
The morning started with a 1min silence for Remembrance Sunday, followed by the 1sts match against a strong Clapham side. The match was evenly fought with some excellent goals from both teams, but Clapham pulled away towards the end leading to a 13-7 loss for West London.
The 2nds match against Hawks followed swiftly afterwards, with a strong fight from all players – especially the tired few who had already played a whole match! The final score was 18-12 to Hawks. Well done to all players.
On Saturday 29th October 2016 we played in the South East Clubs and Colleges Tournament hosted by Putney at Wormwood Scrubs. The format this year was a round robin since there were only 6 teams entered. West London entered a mixed 1s & 2s team. We beat Hawks, Central London and Clapham, losing to Putney and only very narrowly to Blues, to come 3rd overall. Congratulations to everyone who played!
Congratulations to the 1st team today on their 15-3 win over Newbury Royals. The play was much more coordinated as a team rather than just individuals this week, and the attacking unit were able to implement some moves practised in training on Thursday. Well played also to the 2s against East Grinstead in the second match of the day. Despite losing 18-4 the team fought right until the end and never let their heads go down.
Fantastic results just in from the first Sunday matches of the season:
2s beat Reigate 11-9
1s drew with Centaurs 9-9
Bodes well for things to come!
Welcome to our new season! Indoor training has now started on Thursdays at 7.30pm at Putney High School. Our first matches are the weekend of the 18th September so get those sticks ready!
1st Team vs Newbury – 11th October 2015
West London started out strong against the Newbury team at our home ground, Wormwood Scrubs. Our defensive unit was working well and preventing many of the drives by strong Newbury players from resulting in goals, helped by some fantastic saves from goalie Prina. Our midfield transitions and attacking play resulted in several goals, despite a number of new players to our team and a lack of experience together. The score at half time was 4-2 to West London, but the Newbury team were beginning to gain momentum.
That momentum continued into the second half and Newbury gained back ground, with several drives from behind goal resulting in them leading by one goal. After a time out pause to regroup, West London came back fighting and determined to win every ground ball, and our play improved. We regained the lead, but Newbury promptly drew even again, until our final goal was scored by Hannah with 15 seconds left on the clock. Final score was 8-7 to West London, our first win of the season!
West London MVP voted by the team was Helly Muir.
