Edinburgh City 2 (22) vs (8) Dundee 3
The 2nds travelled to Dundee this weekend, taking along with them Elly Gaunt who we haven’t seen for a little while. Along with Elly, Laura de Nooij was making her debut for the club and got off to a great start with 15 goals across the day!
City 2 started the game patiently, lots of shots were going up but it took a little time for them to find their flow, at half time the score was 9-5. But the second half saw the Citizens really find their groove, every player in the squad found the basket and the passing moves were a marvel to watch.
Players (Goals): Andrew Goode (1), Bob Mather (2), Chris Horsely (2), Elly Gaunt (3), Katrina Caldwell (4), Laura de Nooij (7), Lauren Halkerston (1), Michael Garbutt (1), Rob Stone (1)
MVP: Laura de Nooij
Edinburgh City 2 (22) vs (0) Saint Andrews 2
The second match was against Saints 2 and our Citizens put on a really dominant display here. The team managed to set an SKL2 record with their 22 goals winning margin, beating the Strathclyde result (21-1) against the same team earlier this season.
Michael Garbutt managed to get his 7 goals playing only 5 minutes of the second-half, in a Steph Curry-esque display, Michael could hardly miss! It was another great team display saw goals from all around the team with every player this weekend got themselves at least 2 goals.
Special praise was given to Rob Stone who was an absolute pest on defence winning many interceptions, dominating the rebound and dishing out some great assists.
After last week’s first win of the season, it looks as though City 2 have really built on the foundations they laid in those matches. Long may their rise continue and we eagerly await their next fixtures on the 2nd December where they’ll face off against Edinburgh University 2s and 3s.
Players (Goals): Andrew Goode (1), Bob Mather, Chris Horsely (1), Elly Gaunt (1), Katrina Caldwell (1), Laura de Nooij (8), Lauren Halkerston (1), Michael Garbutt (7), Rob Stone (2)
MVP: Laura de Nooij
