Seconds out smarted by Bombers

 

Floating stick trick

This was the seconds first real game with a good helping of brand new freshers from Bath University, so it was always going to be a factor of how quickly the team could gel and how quickly the new players picked up the rules and game know how.

Laurence Dawson-Smith in action

The starting 10 for Bath wasn’t bad on paper, although there were one or two playing out of their natural positions.

Laurnce Dawson-Smith defends

Overall the game was very tight, with few opportunities, Bath probably had as many chances as Bristol to score, but just didn’t take them, either with a fluffed pass or just a plain bad shot.

In goal, as always Will Tilson was on good form with some outstanding saves, but the midfield didn’t help with the clear, putting unnecessary pressure from the ride resulting in the better possession for Bristol.

Mark Lane shoots

At Face Chris Mills was outstanding and gets the MVP vote, winning almost all the face off situations. One face finished off with a very tidy fast break well finished by Mark Lane.

Not a bad result against a more experienced side, and as the freshers gain experience, this result might well be different in the future, can Bath up their game in time for the flags match in December, which is a repeat of this fixture.

Southampton v Bath

21 Oct 2017

Location – Wide Lane, Southampton

West League 1

Final Score Southampton 1:32 Bath

 

Firsts Crush Southampton

Club Captain Luke Wilmot wasn’t pleased with the cancelled game the week before, so went to the South coast with a bit of a point to make.

Southampton are a very green side, Bath were not, and it showed as the visitors scored at will, although to be fair the Southampton team didn’t ever give up, and managed to steal a goal in the 3rd quarter.

This was one for the record books as it firmly places itself high in the all-time best scores and goal differences for Bath.

Did Wilmot learn much about the team for future, tighter matches is the big question.
