You win some, you lose some…

Ed Uni 3 7 – 5 Dundee KC
Sunday, Dec 4, 2pm, Lynch SC, Dundee

Some more good news: After two more great performances last weekend, Dundee have extended their lead at the top of the development section of the Scottish Korfball League!

We won the first game of our second home double-header by 4 goals to 1 (against Edinburgh City’s second-team), and then narrowly lost out in the second game, which ended 7-5 to Edinburgh University’s third-team. Mary and Rosie both scored 2 cracking long shots to win us the first game, which seemed to be a tale of “nearly” for both teams – there must have been well over 30 shots that “nearly” went in, but the basket pixies seemed to be doing their darnedest to keep the ball from dropping through.

The second game was a different story though, with a reasonable number of shots going in, and a closely balanced game right up until the last few minutes. My own highlight was sneaking in a couple of running in shots just before half time to give us a 4-3 lead, but we struggled to extend that lead (or even hold it) in the second half, and the visiting students did well to finish us off right at the end.
