Goal!

Twas a perfect day for a game of hockey so was pleased to be picked for attack today. Within minutes I had the ball and was dribbling up the right wing. I passed the ball into the circle, moved in and received the ball back, aha my chance at goal, 'remember to push' I thought so hit the ball gently. Goal. Hooray my first goal. Not. Apparently I hit and didn't push. We only push as we don't wear shin guards or have a goalie in all the protective gear. I knew this rule and really did think that I pushed but no in my competitiveness I has swung my stick (all be it gently). Not to be deterred I kept on trying but kept just missing the goal. Finally with minutes to spare I was up in the circle with the ball and two defenders 'push, push, push the ball' I thought. Goal. I scored my first goal. About 2 minutes later I scored my second. It's great to be back playing hockey.

Well done I am sure I would find it very hard to just push the ball and not give it a good whack.

Hi Becky!

I'm so impressed!

I was always absolutely useless at hockey. So much so that I was the one never picked of the team.

Well done you!!!!
