Varsity - Womens

23.Feb.2013 - Cambridge

SB ladies 10-9 OW
After trading for the first four points, Oxford started to pull away and widened the gap to be 8-5 up with less than 10 minutes to go. With not much to lose, we called a pull play and got ourselves a quick score. Then, in an incredible display of ferocious D and quick conversions, we started to put the scores away one after the other. Our comeback was a race against the clock, only managing to pull ahead in the last minute. As someone on the sideline put it, "you were in the lead for only 1% of that match".

SB ladies 15-8 OW
We won this game playing simple vert stack and hard man D. Oxford were unable to stop our open side cuts, which we then punished with a string of open-side throws from well-timed continuation cuts. On defense we shut down their three key players and made it hard for them to score. Oxford threw a zone against us on the occasional point but didn't manage to do much more than slow us down.

MVP went to Maggie for her sublime first-cutting, across-pitch assists into the endzone, layout score and positive attitude.

D-bag - after counting the votes slowly trickling in by email, it went to...me! Thanks guys x

Special mention goes to:
Eadaoin and Aimee for being solid handlers all day.
Sam who was responsible for many of our open-side continuations leading to easy scores.
Hannah for playing all roles on pitch to an incredible standard

Helen Hambling's bookends moment.
