USPHC Summer Series: Mixed fortunes against strong UoP XI's in the opening wk of summer hockey

This week (Thurs 16 May) marked the commencement of our home summer series fixtures with UoP making the short trip across town with a Womens and Mixed XI.

The early push-back saw US Women take on a strong university side and dominate from the start, holding the lead through a Cece goal until UoP grabbed one back in the final 10 minutes. Despite finishing a 1-1 draw the US uni girls definitely earned the bragging rights with fine performances all over the pitch against their UoP W1's counterparts! With 8/10 performances all over the pitch there is no room to single out a single performer for praise, but, ......special mention should go to Robynne for her unyielding commitment to defend - with her face! Top performance, well done girls.

The later push-back saw a group of men join both sides and play 60 minutes of mixed hockey, where UoP superior mens quality shone through leading UoP to a 5-1 victory. Well done all those that took part.

If you want to come along to the next summer series match, please update your availability on Pitchero and await selection. The USPHC summer series will see fixtures played against visiting opposition every Thursday through May and June (PBs 1845 & 2000)

We hope to see you on the pitch or in the stands.
