Well done Abingdon Atoms, a fine performance in the Leicester tournament yesterday!
A team of Alex Boy, Alex Girl, Helen, Steven, Chrissie, Damien and Matt (with thanks to Oxford City for providing a fourth girl on rotation) took part in a large tournament containing a whopping 22 teams, and had an excellent morning in the group stages, winning 4 games and losing just 1.
Which meant we were in the ‘top 8’ for the afternoon session, and therefore up against some tough opposition. Two losses and a win, and only one match where rattles were thrown out of prams (to be fair, our opposition were ‘less than gentlemanly’) meant a very respectable finish of 6th out of 22.
Special mention to Helen, who after a very long goal drought finally broke her duck and scored a lovely running in shot. She was so tickled pink that she promptly did it again in the next match! Helen’s goals, like London buses
Well played all!
