The weather is absolutely superb again. A slight breeze, wall-to-wall blue sky, and temperatures in the mid 20s. It really has been a good summer down here in the south.
The whistle blew for kick-off. The ball was rolled back to the Gorse Fox, just outside the centre circle. He looked up and shot. The ball went straight through the opposition and through the goalie's legs. Three of four seconds on the clock and we we were 1-0 up. It was a good way to start today's football.
Overall, the Gorse Fox had a good game - making some significant blocks and tackles. He was on top of his defensive duties. His usual accurate passing, however, had deserted him. Normally he can pass a ball from anywhere on the pitch and drop on his target's toes. Today he couldn't seem to get it with ten feet. Oh well, more time to practice tomorrow.
Meanwhile, Urban-Cub has gone to see the Princess and Betty Rubble has come down to see the Silver Vixen and they have gone out for lunch.
