Report by Neil Kempston

The firsts headed away on a dark Sunday evening to play Croydon 1, one of the best teams in the LRL. Due to the timing of the match we were down a few players but Croydon were also missing a few of their regulars. Croydon opened the scoring with 4 quick goals, with Supernova starting to catch up after a tough first 10 minutes. A quick time out Coach Dinos gave us some words of wisdom and we stepped up, trading goal for goal and coming close to overtaking Croydon many times.

A man of the match performance by Rob Wilson and some great long range shooting by Rob Winn got Croydon worried, calling a frantic time out. Croydon managed to stay ahead of us despite a strong performance with most players getting on the scoreboard – the game finished 22-16 to Croydon.

A big thanks to everyone who stayed to sub or support – and a great first team debut for John Coughlan. Having fought hard against a strong team SN1 round out 2014 with their heads held high.

Rob Winn (5), Morven Masterton (1), Rob Wilson (4), Eiti Stein (1),  Ingmar Evers (2), Joanna Gati, Neil Kempston (2), Sian Halcrow (1), John Coughlan, Jenny McGovern.
