A brimful of hockey
Writing my belated birthday card to my brother in law at Starbucks on Upper Street,
realised how knackered I am. Well, I am entitled to, I suppose.

Had matches on sat & sun. Played really hard and the both games were just brilliant.
A pure joy to be a hockey player.
God, I don't feel this much fatigue when I am on my feet.
Yet, once slumping on the chair, a wave of sluggishness envelopes me...

Anyway, at our away game in Swindon, we clinched our victory with a very convincing 6-4 win.
I scored the first goal of the match and the rest of my awesome team mates all had a go.
It was really sweet.
Yesterday's game at Brixton was 2-2 draw.
Again, I scored another goal at the beginning of the second period.
We were applying a constant pressure in their defensive zone. It was fantastic.
And our temporary goalie Becca put up an amazing agility and spirit.
She never crumbled under the pressure. She was so natural! Her bravery fired up all of us.
All in all, I had one of the most satisfying ice hockey weekend...

These are some of the images taken by my teammate, Kat P, who unfortunately
has been out of action due to her fractured ankle.

Pre-game team talk. I am No.26, by the way. You can't miss it. Because I am the shortest!

Face off! I am a winger (the third from the right).

Breaking out!

And attacking! Shoot!!

After the match, we all line up and shake hands. How civilised...

Chatting to the Premier's Canadian coach Brian. He is a really nice guy (^-^)

The girl on the left is our gorgeous goalie Becca. She was a super star!!
And the girl with her bum to the camera is our Eva. We've all gone giggly.

I am in the sin bin (the penalty box).
No, I've done nothing wrong. I just volunteered to be the official for our Premier's game.
Staying over 1.5hours in here, you are chilled to the bone...
Pass me my tea and refill my hot water bottle!

After being discharged from the sin bin duty, headed straight to Fujiyama on Vining Street.
Vegetable Gyoza & raw juice to kick start our dinner.

Followed by a steaming bowl of seafood noodle. A sheer bliss for my frozen stomach...

By the way, I am not all playing and no knitting.
The new season's sample making has already underway.
It will be blogged when it is ready (^_<)b

P.S. The coach has just informed us that our standing is second in the league now! YAHOO!!
