The Cotswold Floorball League's 'B' Team competition continued tonight. The session ended up being two distinct sets of matches. Four games were to decide who progressed to the 'B' Team Final against St James & Ebrington B. The other four games were to give Dormer House B a rest as they tried to climb up the table by playing all their games in hand. St James and Ebrington D (hereafter, The D Team) provided the opposition. Strangely, all the key games were 0-0 draws as defences and goalkeepers dominated. This left Temple Guiting A in second place in the qualifying table, closely followed by Dormer House B. They will need to meet again to decide who contests the final.
In the other matches the 'D Team' showed how much they have improved. LB in goal had a particularly good evening, keeping out a lot of shots despite his team losing every match. WBd's solitary goal was enough for Ilmington C to win. Brothers JS and VS gave Dormer House B a 2-0 win. MS, TA and MS again impressed for Blockley A with all three goals the result of accurate passes from the back. TA and JS supplied MS's goals, whilst TA's goal was a beautiful shot from the left wing which hit the far top corner. Temple Guiting A also had a 3-0 win, JA and PU - twice, scoring.
Next week the A Team finalists should be decided, with almost every team involved and every match being important. It could yet end up with several teams tied at the top.
