Value go clear

Where the return of a legend helped seal the deal

Saturday games have somewhat become a little bit of a formality at times for the value - we turn up, play questionably whilst the other team does the same before conceding, pulling our collective fingers out and going on to win the game. The opponents this time were Beeston, a team just 2 points behind us having played a game more. Naturally, this promised to be a stunning game but with a certain keeper doing some dancing instead, we relied upon the long awaited return of a legend to the Value. A man that despite not having played a game of hockey in close to 15 months after breaking his wrist (and playing with it broken for at least a year) still showed up and it's fair to say was more alert than most people...

The game started, and for once the Value weren't the better side - however, coping with the pressure we tried to play it out and play the expansive hockey that as a team we've come to use over the course of the season. This went on for about 20 minutes, before their high press eventually wore us down and they managed to finish well. But then right from the off Cam decided that enough was enough and single-handedly carried the ball to their left back, played it off their stick into his body before carrying on and taking a lesson from Mr Tom A Hawk to nestle it just inside the post to make it even going into half time.

The second half started and it was the exact opposite of the first - fluid movement and passing, with the Beeston defence unable to cope with our own high press. And from this, a short was won and Cam slotted it home to make it 2-1 to the boijqz. What followed was a series of heart in mouth moments for both sides, as the Value looked to finish the game as Beeston looked to get back into it. Beeston had the best chances to do this, were it not for a clearence off the line as well as an absolutely outrageous save from Hodor - deflecting it with his stick from an open goal behind him out off the back line for safety. In fact, even at the end the Value were not safe as they kept attacking. Thankfully, a green card for Ash with 15 seconds to go was the last real play of the game and Warwick ended the day 5 points clear of 2nd and 3rd, with just 5 needed for "Promotion" and 8 needed to clinch the league with only 4 games left in what has been an amazing season!
