After having some fine meals on Saturday, it was time to get in action at our first game day in Heist op den Berg. After all the girls and board members had set up the field it was time to hit the changing room and get prepared for the first women’s game of 2013.
At 13h30 the ladies of the Heist Hunters were ready to try to proof themselves against the current Cup holder Red Rhinos. A lot of fans showed up. Red Rhinos already played 2 games this season. The already had the vibe of the game resulting in a very quick high score, despite some good teamwork of the Hunters ad some marvelous saves from their goalie. During the game the Hunters became better resulting in a goal from Marijke and Jana. Resulting in a end score of 2-11 for the Rhinos, which was not that bad as we remembered the last time we faced them and lost 0-17.
Afterwards our boys faced the men team of Red Rhinos. With a good mix of national team players, experienced lax-o-holics and promising rookies they had an easy Sunday afternoon snack against only 9 Hunting Armadillos. The Hunting Armadillos started well by getting a 1-0 lead on the scoreboard, but from the moment the Red Machines were properly activated they blew away the Hunting Armadillos as a sailboat during a tropical storm at the atlantic ocean. End score: 3-23.
Next week both teams will travel to Buggenhout in their quest for a win this season.
