Thursday 7th April 2022: Phoenix v Wolves
It was a very cold match this evening. Phoenix, aided by George and Ozzy as team mates were absent, started well with a swift goal in the first few minutes. Wolves matched them goal for goal for much of the game. There was some fabulous strategic play, and it was obvious how much the teams have progressed this year. The match was kept short due to the weather (we had had frequent downpours during the day), and as the snitch was caught by Seeker Jacob, the first drops fell once again. A tight match resulted in a 130 to 120 point win to Phoenix. Man of the match goes to Chaser Michael for a fantastic first half goal before he swapped out at half time.

What a brilliant game! The teams were incredibly well matched, and whatever one team did, the other followed suit.

Seeker Tommy, therefore made the difference, and Wolves took the match 170 to 140 points. Well done to both teams for great play and sportsmanship.

What an absolutely fantastic match! From the very start, both teams were in it to win. Some skills and tactics discussions led to some brilliant pieces of play, and a very fluid match.

As on-loan Seeker Ginny took the snitch for Eagles, Phoenix gained another goal. The counters added up the scores to find that Eagles had 100 points, and Phoenix... also 100! Our second draw of the year.
