Welwyn’s 1st team beat Oxford Uni 11-4 in their first game of the season. Played on their new home ground (Herts Uni) the team came away with a comprehensive win but have work to do. Oxford scored the first goal of the game but were left 5-2 down at the end of the first quarter. they narrowed the gap in the second quarter to 6-4 but were unable to score after half time allowing Welwyn to pull away in the third and forth quarter. Hard work on ground balls and face offs gave Welwyn possession for much of the game but Welwyn gave away far too many penalties. Luckily for Welwyn the Oxford Uni’s man-up plays couldn’t manage to get past goalie Jon Tiley. A strong effort from the whole team was shown in the whole game and the team is looking forward to training Tuesday to improve on their performance.
