In the not-so-epic saga of CCHC inter-club duels, the Men's 3s took on the M4s in what can only be described as an exercise in ego (and score) inflation. On this day, the M4's goalkeeper probably wondered why he didn’t take up yoga instead, given the vast amount of bending he did – including to retrieve the ball from the back of the net.
The final whistle saw a jaw-dropping 10-0 scoreline. For those in the stands, it seemed as though they were witnessing a bizarre charity event where goals were handed out freely – but no, this was just good ol' CCHC hockey.
The junior players were clearly feeding on some magical cereal that morning as they made it look all too easy, accounting for a whopping 8 out of the 10 goals. Teddi C unleashed a forehand missile from a penalty corner that left onlookers and the goalie both awe-struck and slightly deaf from the backboard “boom”. Will C hopped on the scoring train, while Henry DG clearly had his Weetabix - netting a double hattrick. Sam, back from a 5-year hiatus from hockey, and our fearless leader, Gibbo, both bagged a goal each to significantly increase the average age of the goal scorers from 15!
Henry, however, not one for humility, clinched both the Man of the Match and Donkey of the Day awards, the latter for fluffing a penalty flick. Perhaps he wanted to leave some accolades for others? Onlookers might feel a tad sorry for Jerms, who was left begging on the P spot. Instead of repaying Jerms for the first half tap in goal “gift”, Henna decided to go large – and got mashed by the GK for his troubles.
Heart-warmingly, M4 demonstrated true sportsmanship. Instead of sulking over each conceded goal, they celebrated their junior clubmates’ (and teammates from last year) successes with hearty back pats, somewhat muted applause, and wry smiles – a heartening display of club unity.
So, here's to inter-club camaraderie! And perhaps next time, a slightly more balanced scoreline? We're looking at you, M4. 😉
