Southampton seconds knock it on, on the halfway line

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:54 pm

General consensus from the side line is Southampton seconds are a different team this half, a come back could be on

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:53 pm

Looks like the firsts are getting under way for the second, I’ll keep an eye on them but the seconds game is by far the more competitive

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:52 pm

I’ve been corrected, the firsts are winning 44-0

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:50 pm

The seconds are now trailing 24-7 to Bristol

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:49 pm

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:39 pm

Winchester are held up over the line but had the advantage

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:38 pm

Luckily she’s back on her feet and we’re ready to go again

It’s the fly half, could be a huge loss if she were to go off

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:36 pm

I’ve made my way over to the rugby pitches and looks like the first and second teams are well into their games

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:14 pm

With that I’ll head over to the rugby to see what’s going on!

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:13 pm

16-4 now for Bristol

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:04 pm

Bristol’s attack has been deadly so far this game

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:03 pm

Big save from the Bristol goalie stops a fine shot

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20162:01 pm

The rugby should be kicking off any moment now, well be sure to bring you the scores from there soon

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:59 pm

An over the net pass and tip in for Bristol, a beautiful goal there, the best yet making it 16-4

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:58 pm

Bristol take their time with the ball, working their play patiently

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:57 pm

Bristol turn it over and counter

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:56 pm

Good period of possession for soton here

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:56 pm

However Southampton respond with a goal of their own to make it 15-4

12-2 to Bristol in this lacrosse game a few hockey players start appearing, in anticipation of their 2.30 game

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:38 pm

Southampton have shown glimmers of fantastic play but just haven’t been able to string anything together yet

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:37 pm

I’ve just received confirmation from the side line that no one is exactly sure of the score! I’ll do my best to find out

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:36 pm

A quick attack from Southampton and a goal makes it 11-2

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:36 pm

A beautiful pass to an open player gives Bristol the chance to make it 11 goals, and that they do

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:35 pm

Foul by Bristol send that gets a talking from the ref

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:34 pm

A well worked play makes it double figures Bristol 10-1

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:33 pm

It comes to nothing and Bristol are back on the charge

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:33 pm

Almost an opening for Southampton but Bristol shut it down with two defenders, illegally though and Southampton have a penalty shot

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:32 pm

47 for Bristol goes off on a run by herself from the half way line, she makes it all the way to the goal and scores! 9-1

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:31 pm

A good wrap around chance pays off for Bristol who bury the ball in the back of the net to make it 8-1

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:29 pm

We have a shot but it goes just wide of the net, still 7-1 Bristol in this lacrosse game

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:29 pm

Southampton run it around Bristol’s net, setting up the attack

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:28 pm

Southampton really aren’t getting much possession at the minute, Bristol are doing well to limit any chances

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:27 pm

7-1 now, there well be a brief pause in a few minutes as I’ll be phoning in to Wessex scene on surge radio giving them the updates!

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:25 pm

The Bristolian defence are too strong and Bristol score on the counter attack, 6-1

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:25 pm

And Southampton are off on either attack, can they have similar success to last time

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:24 pm

The first half of this ladies lacrosse has been all Bristol so far…

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:24 pm

I believe it’s now 5-1 but this game is going at such a pace is hard to tell!

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:22 pm

A quick answer from Bristol makes it 4-1, they have a deadly attack and plenty of patience for those opportune moments

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:21 pm

A strong quick offensive rush and it results in a goal for Southampton! They now trail 3-1

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:20 pm

Another big save and soton have the turnover

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:19 pm

A strong drive to the net and the soton goalie has to make a good save

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:18 pm

Continued pressure from Bristol, this is better defence from Southampton now

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:18 pm

Let’s see if soton can rally from this slow start

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:17 pm

And I believe with that goal it is now 3-0 Bristol in the lacrosse

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:17 pm

The match is underway, so far it’s all Bristol. Lots of work for the Southampton goalie

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:16 pm

Sorry for the delay, had some technical difficulties!

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:04 pm

Warm ups are coming to an end, the lacrosse Southampton v Bristol should be almost underway.

avatar James Moseley November 30, 20161:01 pm

Eleanor Fox who we did an interview with earlier on in the week should be in action today.

avatar James Moseley November 30, 201612:59 pm

Less than 5 minutes to go now, both teams seem to be wearing maroon so it’s going to a tough day telling who is who!

avatar James Moseley November 30, 201612:55 pm

Both Southampton and Bristol are out warming up, whole to my left there’s plenty of movement on the netball pitches, I’ll do my best to keep you up to date on those games as well.

avatar James Moseley November 30, 201612:54 pm

And I’m here, set up on the pavilion with a perfect view of the lacrosse pitch, the sun is out, it’s warning up a tad now. We’re all set up and ready to go!
