A round up of December and January

It’s been a few weeks since we last updated you all but here goes…
Thunder 1 have had a mixed few weeks, starting with the best game of the season against champions Cardiff City Cyclones which ended 13-13. The next two weeks saw us beat both Horfield and Cardiff Dragons heavily. After the Christmas break we travelled to Oxford where a frustrating game finished 13-11 to the OKA Select Squad. This past week has seen an upturn with a great victory against Cardiff University (22-10, full match report to follow) and our first trip to London for the rearranged EKA Cup match against Harrow Vultrix. The EKA Cup handicap system awards certain teams a starting goal advantage – we were unlucky to be on the end of a 10 goal head start to Harrow. The game (with no handicap) finished 10-16 to us but unfortunately this translated to 20-16 to the hosts and thus we went out of the cup.
Thunder 2 have played 3 games since the start of December. The first being an amazing result against Taunton 1 with the score ending 11-9. Sianne, Sam A and Clare all scored at least two goals. Next came two heavy losses against two good teams in Bristol City 1 and Horfield 1. Captain Clare showing her class with 4 goals in the first match. We have several players now forcing there way into the 2nd team squad who only started a few months ago (and Stewart has gone further by starting the previous two 1st games – Well done!).
Thunder 3 likewise have played 3 games since the last update. The 3rds have shown why we are doing well as a club – nearly everyone in the team started korfball in the last year. The goals are gradually increasing and it’s looking good! Three losses in the three games but all against 2nd teams from various clubs. Rohanna is leading the way being the joint highest female scorer in the entire SWKL2. Keep it up!
