Well, as they say, it was a game of two halves.
Half-time score - Godzdogz 2 : CathSoc 0.
Full-time score - Godzdogz 2 : CathSoc 5.
So, as fr Timothy Radcliffe said at Mass this evening 'It was a sort of draw : we won the first half, they won the second !'
Being quite honest, youth was on CathSoc's side - and possibly, just possibly, a little help from their friends; inasmuch as one of their 'guest' players turned out to be an U21 International !
However, it was a good, friendly, and closely fought match, enjoyed by everyone - including a welcome number of spectators who turned out to support the two teams - and pizza and beer at Blackfriars afterwards allowed some new friendships to be made, as well as a lot of good humoured banter. All in all, a good day.
For those who are interested, Godzdogz are playing again, in two weeks time, when they play the University of London Catholic Society in London. Further details in due course.
(However; Godzdogz also really need some sponsorship to cope with the costs of their campaign; so anyone who feels able to help should contact them, via their blog.)
