The first quarter started off with Penguin scoring the first goal. The chase was on. Basingstoke scored shortly after that to equalise. The match was very even in standard and both teams were going to give each other as good as they got the whole way. The goals kept coming from both sides and there was never more than a 2 goal difference as we moved into the final quarter. Going in a goal ahead at 9-8 Basingstoke weren’t in the clear yet and knew they had to stay focused. Penguin equalised with a few minutes left on the clock, was there time for one of the teams to get ahead. With only 1min 30secs left Basingstoke scored they’re 10th goal but was it enough to win. The clock ran down in slow motion as Basingstoke got possession of the ball and moved back into Penguins defense zone. The whistle blew and it was all over, Basingstoke Ladies had beaten Penguin II 10-9, a fantastic victory for the team who just lost out by 1 goal to Southampton Uni the week before at a score of 9-8.

 

Final Score: Basingstoke Ladies 10 – 9 Penguins II

I would like to congratulate Amy specifically on this match as she played extremely well and seems to have gotten over her goal scoring phobia by contributing 2 goals to the final score : )

This was my final match as team captain so am over the moon with the win! It’s been a great 6yrs but I will be glad to be able to put my feet up and watch someone else organise everything instead! So good luck to my successor and Basingstoke as a team as I am sure the team will grow as time goes on.

And special thanks to Gerry who puts in so much effort for the club.

Thanks, Kelli xox
