In stark contrast to the 5ths game directly before, the 4ths were facing the then bottom of the league Bec 6.  Chairman Drew had tipped the 4ths as favourites and spirits were high.  Facing them was a Bec 6 team with a mix of youth and experience.  Indeed so much youth in some cases that Ian, who has recently reduced his shaving to let him sport a fine set of whiskers, faced off against an opponent who looked like he had yet to start shaving.
New Boy Paul, Ian, Cat E and Lauren started in defence whilst Steve, Cat B, Sacha and I started in attack.  We threw off and straight away started moving the ball around with pace.  We missed an early shot but things were looking good.  Unfortunately Bec decided this wasn't to be the case and took an early lead from an early attack.  In return we kept up the speed of attack but things just wouldn't drop.  Our best attempt was a shot from a quick restart that looked goal bound only for the post to be accidently nudged and the shot to go wide.  Quick as a flash the ball shot down the other end and Bec scored.  Taking it to 2-0.  
That's how it remained for the rest of the half.  Our defence stayed tight reducing Bec to a minimum of shots, collecting those that did go up and intercepting well.  Down the other end, for all our attacking endeavour, the ball just wouldn't go through the korf.  So as the whistle went and we went into a very brief half-time team talk we sat just a couple of scores behind.  Amy came on to make her debut as Sacha made way.  A great shame for Sacha who had marked her opponent out of the game and hadn't had much of a chance to score that ever elusive first goal.  Still great to see another Supernovan make their debut and Amy took to the court well.
The 2nd half started much as the 1st had ended with our defence tight but our attack frustratingly just that little bit short.  Then in a short space of time we gave Bec a penalty, which they fortunately missed, but they scored from the rebound.  Then from their next attack my opponent scored from only his 3rd shot of the game.  To see two goals go in, in such quick succession, was gutting as we'd defended stoutly for well over half the 50 minutes and we'd looked to be making our way back into it.  
Our change in attack didn't change our fortunes and again, whilst we had the majority of shots, we couldn't score.  Down the other end Bec were missing their own fair share of shots, with each of Ian's youthful counterparts attempts being greeted with groans from the Bec bench as time and time again they bounced off the rim.  His team mates, however, had better luck and another couple of goals saw us change around again.  
The day’s story continued and whilst we gave away another penalty, Bec missed again, and the game ended a hugely frustrating 6-0.  This is a great shame as on another day we could have seen some of our players walking away with hat tricks, on the other hand we can count ourselves lucky that Bec missed their penalties and some of their shots as the score line could equally have been worse.
Special note again to Amy for making her debut and Cat B's first game this season.  Next up SN5 play Mitcham 2 and SN4 face the return fixture against Trojans 3 on the 9th December for out 2nd Supernova Sunday of the season.
