Match Report by Amanda Hobbs.
A bright sunny morning, on the top class pitch at Bisham was the setting for our second league game against our rivals from Reading.
With Arnie back in goal, a couple of players playing despite injuries and a welcome appearance from MOM Anya who was returning to hockey after a season out, we started strong with accurate passing and good communication. Although we had the majority of possession it seemed we would be ending the first half with a blank score sheet. A great interception by Lucy followed by a dynamic run put an end to that and our first goal hit the back of the net.
An encouraging talk from Emma, advice from Chris and the return of half time sweets spurred us on to increase our lead in the second half.
Reading upped their game and we battled hard, with some great running from the forwards and solid defence at the back. Ten minutes in we were awarded a penalty corner and our practice from Monday paid off as Anna's shot from the top put us 2-0 up. A further goal from Gemma resulted in another 3-0 win and ensured that we maintain a great start of the season position towards the top of the league.
