Saturday 2nd December -  Home


14:15 Cranbrook Ed. Cam.
Exeter 2 vs Bristol City 3
Exeter 1 vs Bristol City 1


Seconds: 10:0

Firsts: 20:12


A similar situation to last week. The seconds won by default as Bristol City 3 failed to turn up. Thanks to Exeter Uni for stepping in at the last minute to give the 2nds a friendly match and a good run around (Exeter City won by 7 goals to 5) .
Bristol City 1 turned up with only three girls (but 5 boys), so it was another 7 vs 8 game. After the practise last week Exeter City 1 again took good advantage of their extra numbers to claim a good win.

Sunday 10th December 2017 - Away

12:30 House of Sport Cardiff
Exeter 1 vs Cardiff Raptors

16:00 Bridgwater College

Exeter 2 vs Taunton



Firsts: 21:17

Seconds: 5:11


A close match for the firsts. They fought hard, but never managed to close the gap. Another good win for the seconds. Some good dynamic movement - so much so that the opposition complained they had blisters by the end of the match!

Saturday 16th December - Home


13:15 Cranbrook Ed. Cam.
Exeter 2 vs Bristol Uni 2
Exeter 1 vs Bristol Thunder 2

Firsts: 21:15

Another two great wins! A great way to end the first half of the season. There was plenty of celebrating at the Christmas party  afterwards!

13:15 Gloucester   
Exeter 2 vs Gloucester Lions 2   
Exeter 3 vs Gloucester Lions 3


Seconds: 7:16

Thirds 3:13
The 2nd and 3rd teams had a successful trip to Gloucester with two good wins. The 2nds made a great start to 2018 by not conceding any goals in the first half! Gloucester responded by making numerous substitutions at half time. The 3rds played equally well and didn't concede any goals in their second half - great defense and some good scoring too! Well done all. 

Saturday 20th January 2018 - Away   


12:15 University Sport Park, Main Hall
Exeter 2 vs University of Exeter 2

Seconds: 8:11
A rather tense match against our local rivalls! Exeter City made a strong start, but the Uni team kept up their energy to draw level and then get two goals ahead - much to their excitement! The seconds though kept calm and put into place the moves they had been learning in training to regain the lead and win the match.

Notes:

- Under league rules a game played by an illegal side (eg. Second Team match with too many players from the First team) is forfeit 10 - 0.

- Teams will be requested to submit male and female most value player (MVP) for the opposition after every game so the award is more objective than in previous    years.
