Double whammy – a summary of two league weekends (and 5 matches!)

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 ...

Weekend 5 Summary – NW Shield matches

Warriors 2 v Lancaster University 1 16/11/13 After last week’s defeat in the league to Lancaster 1, Warriors 2 had revenge in mind. A slightly different look line up took to the court including the return of Miriam and Sarah from injury. The team was hopeful of a good result. Lancaster unfortunately took the lead again whilst Warriors struggled to convert their chances. The team went in 6-3 down at half time, still in the match but needing to score some goals. The second half continued in th...

A weekend of two halves! League weekend #4

Warriors 1 v Birmingham University 1 07/11/13 Warriors 1 first home game of the season was set to be a good one. We knew our opponents would come out fighting and our aim was to dampen their spirits and cut them out. Mike was on it from the off, scoring 2 quick goals and giving us the advantage, it was ours to build on and so we did. Strong defence meant that Uni struggled to find the korf and with plenty of goals at either end Warriors ended the half firmly in the lead. The second half began ...

A weekend of draws, but Warriors remain undefeated!

Warriors 3 v Manchester University 2 03/11/13 A Sunday evening, a time where we should have our feet up. A nice home cooked dinner and maybe a cheeky beverage before the Monday morning alarm wakes us from our slumber. But not for the Warriors. They were in action Sunday evening against Manchester University 2. A team full of young whipper snappers. Ready to use their boundless stores of energy and fresh faces to try and take Warriors unbeaten record away from them. The first half fell into th...

Warriors 3 continue the club’s winning streak

So the opening day of the season arrived for Manchester Warriors 3rd team on 27th October. After a fantastic pre-season it was time to show the league what we were made of. Lancaster University were our opponents if you didn't know, we wouldn't blame you if you didn't. The first half; Warriors dominated possession, keeping it really tight in defence and creating lots of chances in attack. Warriors just had to be patient and keep doing what they were doing and Lancaster would get tired. And...

Warriors open the season with two great wins!

Warriors 1 v Leeds City 19/10/13 Warriors 1st team travelled to Leeds for the opening match of the season. Always a tough game as Leeds are known for being a strong team however with lots of new blood in the team, Warriors were looking for a strong start to the season. The match started fairly evening with no more than 2 in it for the first half. Some great play, however Warriors hadn't quite got into the right gear and at half time the score was 8-7 to Warriors. The second half began much m...
