Broomball 7th March 2001
Broadgate Ice Rink at Liverpool Street was the venue for the second round of the 2001 Broomball tounament. Our team Spice n'Easy had been lucky to progress through the first round. But we were determined to make a good showing in the second round. This was a lot tougher as only one team of the five would go through. We did however come up with some hasty tactics that seemed to work well for us.
Our first match was against a team that had previously reached the final, and we well deserved the 0-0 draw we achieved. We went into the second game with confidence, but were beaten by the eventual winners due to a controversial goal, an indirect free shot came off one of ours players foot into the top of our net. So we expected it to be disallowed, but unfortunately the referee let the goal stand.
Our third game we lost 2-1 and our final game we won 2-0, so finishing on a level goal difference. It was a shame we didn't get a chance to play the easier teams first, to get out tactics honed, but there's always next year.
Spice n'Easy team: Myself, Steve, Matthew, Liz, Jo, Henrietta, Stuart.
