Teams perform well in first tournament of the season
By Andrew Willis
One team wins Shield other out to winners on pens
First tournament of the season and a trip to Windsor, a tournament we've not played in before.
Two teams, Blues and Greens (this team was entered late when more players became available).
The standard of the tournament was surprisingly high and Blues had to work really hard to stay with some excellent teams but managed to secure 3 draws and a final game win that saw them finish second in the group phase. In the quarter finals they were unlucky to go out on penalties to the eventual winners Maidenhead.
The Greens, handicapped by not having any subs battled hard but failed to win in the group phase but had more luck in the semi and final of the Shield where some excellent penalty taking saw them take the trophy despite only 3 of the 5 players being able to run by the end:).
