LX Club v
West Country Select
in Exeter on 25th
LX 2-0 .
Having benefited from an extra hour in bed ( or maybe not)
due to the ending of BST LX started the game at a brisk pace moving the ball
quickly and supporting each other off the ball.
Sustained pressure in the
Select half led to a penalty corner from which Brian Perryman scored from the
first shot at goal.
Just before half time Mike Harris scored from another
penalty corner with a looping shot from the right hand side of the circle.
Solid defence prevented the Select from troubling Phil Barbagallo in the LX
The second half saw the Select pushing hard to open their account and
the LX defence survived a few misunderstandings.
With John Tripp and Pammy
Bolina looking lively in attack LX were eventually rewarded with a Penalty Stoke
for an illegal stop in front of goal.
Unfortunately Pammy was unable to
convert when his gentle flick/push was saved by the West’s goalkeeper Paddy
Many thanks to Mike Harris for assembling the teams and to Sudesh
Nayar for masterfully skippering the side.
Afterwards to round off an
enjoyable day we were treated to some excellent west country hospitality at Café
Andre courtesy of Bill and Catherine Goodridge.
