First Atoms 1 game of the year, and they were expected to struggle without their injured, talismanic, club chairthing (and sometime match report author).
Sadly for my ego an impressive win followed.
Abingdon started strongly, scoring the first two goals, and Gorka had a free pass disallowed for a ‘marginal’ defended shot. And, in spite of their impressive organisation and fight, City never got back within 2 goals.
More disallowed goals in the second half for Gorka (he got the ball through the hoop 7 times in total I think) in the end he had to resort to passing to Damien who managed to score some legal goals.
Well done to all the girls, who had to fight hard against quite physical opposition.
And we won’t say I told you so to John, who injured a toe. I’ll say no more.
