HFL Rickmansworth v Bushey Away Match Report – played on 23-Sep-2017

The team gathered at Bushey Country Club for the second leg of our local derby, which is always a competitive affair. The weather was looking rather glum, but we were assured by the ever so accurate weather people, that it was to brighten up mid-morning. The gun went off, and we were away. The first match lost to Bushey by 1 point, match 2 was a draw, match 3 lost by 2 points and match 4 lost by a point. So far, all the matches were extremely close. At this stage Rickmansworth were only 4 points down and a good final round could swing the result in our favour. The final match of the day unfortunately lost to Bushey by 3 points, so it was a win to Bushey by 7 points. Final scores were Rickmansworth 187 points to Bushey’s 194 points. However, as we won at home by 14 points, the cup comes back to Rickmansworth as we won the aggregate by 7 points. The sweep was won by Mick Rogers and Dave Miles, again, with a healthy score of 41 points. Well done gentlemen, and once again a big thank you to all who played on the day.
