Hmm what to say about the Penarth - Reading game.....

'Twas a good clean game, not many fouls or stoppages. Reading deserved their win but I don't think we deserved to lose by that margin. Was a tight game up till the last quarter. A 5-0 soreline in the final quarter added gloss to the scoreline. The Penarth attack didnt show the same sparkle as they had in the blues game and the defence took about 2-3 quarters to get going. Defence was hampered by my longpole getting bent in the warm-up and having to play with only two longpoles. Our defence was wasteful with the clear which never helps!!

The first league game between East Grinstead and a Blues team since a few of us left the Blues to start East Grinstead. The game was played in the spirit you'd expect.

East Grinstead controlled the game from the start, the Blues hardly touched the ball in the first quarter, Blues fought back in the second, then the 20 man EG squad paid off in the 2nd half, all the EG players remained fresh, while the Blues were puffing a little having to work hard on a heavy pitch.

bucks pld Hitchin A and gave them a hammering!

But the Hitchin V Hampsted game was awsome (11-9 to hitchin)

Hampstead scored 1st then hitchin had a few goals, then hampsted had a good 2nd quater and took it ahead by 1, then hitchin drew level at 5-5. it was a goal exchange till 8 all. Then Hitchin had 3 sweet goals to go to 11. Hitchin tryed to control game but looked scrappy in the last 5 mins trying to just hold the lead, hapmstead playing a good pressure defence to try and get posession, they scored off a defensive blunder with 1:30 to go and they could not capatalise on Hitchins um..... Giddyness and the score remained 11-9

It was a good battle on the face, but i have no shame in saying James Mitchel (#17) got the better of me (Prinston starter, all american and lizards player). But i did win a few against him. But our long pole Beast Kyle (who got more turn overs and ground balls than our entire mid field) covered me on the ones i lost so its all good.

Our outstanding players who deserve a mention were Joe (19 saves), Kyle (just a beast) and Josh (just amazing). Bishop also had a wicked game with some awsome slides. Our middies played some awsome defence with good body positioning and a few sick take-aways.

I then took the 3 hour journey back to cardiff and got mega drunk and had a wicked night!

Swansea gave us a good game and the score is definitely skewed in our favour. They seemed pretty close to us in all areas except finishing and face-offs.

Best of luck with the rest of the season guys.

Thanks for the gracious comments Oxford, even when you did admitedly give us a drumming.

I'll have to admit that our game certainly wasn't a true show of how we normally play. We tried something new in defence because we new most of your offence can shoot from the outside quite well, but it seemed to just make it easier for you to stroll in for the inside-shot finish.

Our offence was appalling, which includes me in the midfeild line up, and really we offered no real threats, choosing to bunch around the goal instead of playing like we should have done.

Theres no doubt we gave it 100% on the day, but we just forgot how to play lacrosse. Another day, maybe later in the season, and the scoreline certainly would have been different. But theres no denying that Oxford played the superior game, and gave everyone at hawks something to think about.

Still...........not bad for our first season EVER :D

Thanks for the game guys!!

ah the cold light of day...
4-2 to reading at the 1st quarter, penarth not quite firing but still in the game so no real worries.
7-3 at halftime, still not really going in attack but still in touch - reading beginning to work their numbers in attack and producing some great moves
8-5 at three quarter- we looked poor but 2 goals in 30s got us within touching distance
then..well we beat ourselves really - went into the last with heads down, bitching to each other whereas reading were confident, playing well and dominating possession from the face off X. as GB said, a 5-0 last quarter flatters a little but reading were by far the better side for 80 mins and fully deserved the win - and having seen broadly the same reading side play last week vs bath, what a step up in performance! back to the training ground for the welsh lads...
It's not the size of the dog in the fight...

Think those 2quick fire goals you scored shook us up and got our minds back on the game. We had seen too many games slip away from us recently to allow it to happen again and I think you caught the back lash of that. Hopefully this will be a turning point for us as we were attacking with a lot more confidence and purpose than we had all season. Was great to play a match that was hard and fast but ultimately fair with only one penalty for a foul in the whole game I think.

I think we, as a team, have to learn to pick our heads up a little more when we start to lose. It gets a little demoralising in D when you have to defend a fast break on pretty much every transition. We've managed to do that in a few games like Purley and Hampsted, maybe because we fancied our chances some people were resigned to the loss towards the end.

Anyway, training this Sat will hopefully help :D

Heh, well i won't be there as i am going travelling today (talk about bad timing, missing to many games)! but i think it will help our new players a lot, especially in attack were there was a need to be more careful with possession than in our league. Always good to come up against more experienced players, certainly enjoyed the challenge! Though some of the old bruises have reappeared on my arms after Xmas recovery! lol

EGLC V's Blues 2's Match Reports

Postby EGLC02 Mon Jan 16, 2006 5:57 pm

EGLC's Forum wrote:East Grinstead Lacrosse Club starts New Year with emphatic win:

EGLC 11 Walcountian Blues 1

EGLC started the second half of the league campaign with a superb win over the Walcountian Blues. EGLC started the brighter of the two teams and controlled the ball well gaining nearly all the possession during the first quarter. The second quarter saw the blues fight back and gain a good amount of possession, but the EGLC defense remained strong and was able to deal with any threat. The second half saw EGLC stretch their lead using their superior squad numbers and fitness against an increasingly tired Blues side.

The final score of 11-1 reflected a good team performance from EGLC with lots of excellent goals scored. There were first goals of the season for EGLC youngsters Ben Searle and Leo Barnett. With Leo also taking the man of the match award.

EGLC goals: White 2, Cooper 2, Thonger 2, Barnett 2, Pordum 1, Searle 1, Watkins 1.

Next weekend EGLC play host to the University of London the game starts at 2:00 at East Grinstead Rugby Football Club.

Blues Website wrote:East Grinstead 11 - Blues 2s 1
The first contest between the Walcountian Blues and East Grinstead since a few of the Blues players left to start lacrosse in Sussex. A tough game on a heavy pitch left the Blues 2s without much reward as EG ran out winners 11-1.

From the first face-off EG took control, and offered the Blues little ball to create much with. The Blues defence stood strong, led by Blues 2s vice-captain Tom Slade, and excellently assisted by Paul Evans, Alan Bosworth and Jon Arthurs, and backed up by the imposing sight of John in goal. But even with some effective defence, playing D for 20 mintues is tough and EG managed to take a 4-0 lead at the end of the first quarter. Former Blues players Chris White and Matt Thonger amongst the goal scorers.

The second quarter saw the Blues rally and force some pressure on EG. The switch to midfield of Randall Hobbs (coming back after breaking a collar bone before Christmas) and Balduin Hesse made a difference and offered some good support to Blues 2s skipper John Wigmore, Justin Marshall and Dave Carter who were already working hard in the Blues midfield.

EG struggled to gain the control they had offered in the 1st quarter, and only scored a single goal. This was matched by the Blues with an outstanding goal by Randall Hobbs, shooting powerfully on the turn, he managed to find the top right corner of EG's former Blues goalkeeper, Dan Hunter.

The second half saw East Grinstead make their larger squad count. The Blues had a decent size squad of 14, but EG fielded 20 players, and on a muddy pitch fatigue started to make life hard for the Blues. That said, the Blues stuck their task in hand. Adie Blackman, usually known for his play behind the opponents goal, made a cameo midfield appearance, and had a good amount of success on the face-off.

Dan Hunter was also made to work hard in the EG goal, as he repelled shots from Randall Hobbs, John Wigmore and Bernie Daniels. But the EG defence of former Blues trio Dave Kelly, John Pordum and Nigel Kingston are a strong unit and made life very tough for the Blues attack.

Next week, Blues 2s have a home fixture against Northampton University, a side who are placed just below Blues 2s in the East Division tables. The top eight teams enter the East Division play-off's and a win for Blues 2s over Northampton would assist their chances of making these play-off's.

As for East Grinstead, a club which was started by Walcountain Blues members, they face University of London where another win is needed for the Sussex-based club if their pursuit for promotion is to be pushed on another step.

The future's bright. The future's BLACK & SILVER!!!
