Warriors 1 v Manchester City 1 21/11/13
Second home match of the season and a local derby against Manchester City 1. City started strongly and it was goal for goal until 3-3. Then Warriors upped the gear and started to roll. The goals began to drop and City couldn’t keep up with the pace. Half time score of 14-6 and coach Mossy gave the message of more of the same in the second half. Warriors brought the game home safely even with a drop in pressure towards the end, but the result was never in question. Good result for Ali’s last game in a Warriors shirt. 24-13 final score.

Warriors 1 v Nottingham City 1 21/11/13
Warriors 1 travelled, on a beautiful Saturday winters morning, down to play Nottingham City 1.Nottingham took the lead at the start but it wasn’t long before Warriors equalised. Two quick goals from Mike put Warriors two goals up and we clung to that lead for the majority of the match.Nottingham were rattled…Warriors we’re putting up too much of a fight for their liking. Warriors started the second half as they ended the first with all to play for. A few goals dropped for Nottingham and they were back level. A tense last 10 minutes but Nottingham gained a 2 goal lead. Highlight of the second half was brick wall Mike being toppled by a girl. Final score – 15-13. A well fought match and a tough loss.
Stat of the match – in 4 games Mike has equalled his goal tally for the whole of last season.

Warriors 2 v Manchester University 3 22/11/13
With two of Coach Mossy’s teams going head to head he chose to remain impartial and enjoyed a break in the lakes instead. Warriors 2 opened the scoring and slowly built to a half time score of 6-0. The team was controlling the game against the much newer to korfball Uni 3.Second half called for more of the same and the team upped their scoring rate. A hold to nil looked on but Uni managed to score 1 past super sub from the previous week – Tom. Final score a dominating 16-1 with both Sarah and Lucy on fire this week.

Warriors 3 v Lancaster University 1 01/12/13
Warriors 3 went into the match against Lancaster 1 being the only Warriors team left undefeated so far this season. With that in mind the team went forward to try and do what no other team was able to do this season…take Lancaster 1 down!Lancaster 1 had other ideas though, and scored two quick goals to open the game. The game continued in this fashion, and despite lots of effort all around Warriors 3 could not get the ball to drop. The early morning start got the better of the team and we walked away defeated, 20-8. Lancaster 1 remains the Warriors Bogey team!

Warriors 2 v Lancaster University 2 01/12/13
An early start saw Warriors 2 take on Lancaster University 2. Lancaster were definitely up for the game and played well but Warriors controlled the play. 6-0 up at half time was a comfortable position, 3 out of 4 league matches held to nil at the half time point. The second half saw more of the same with Sarah and Chris B top scoring with 4 each. A late call by Chris C saw Lancaster score their first of the match before they converted a second runner. The match however was never in doubt, 14-2 the final score. That’s 30 goals for Warriors 2 and only 3 against in the last 2 matches.
