We have just returned from summer vacation.
Half of the season is behind us.
Our playing as a team has become better and better, unfortunately that has not translated to the scoreboard.
We have lost the first five games of the season and we have 3 more before the semifinal (two scheduled and the season opener that we postponed)
We played Södermalm Blues on the weekend (Aug 25)
Årsta fired on all cylinders and took charge of the game giving us a nice lead at the end of the first quarter.
The following two quarters Södermalm fought back good, slowly gaining on us and the third quarter finnished with a one point difference between the teams.
The last quarter was a stand off
Who could muster a little bit more than the opponent?
Finally we managed to get a bit of a lead and when the final siren sounded the final score was
Årsta 14.12 (96)
Söder 12.10 (82)
We hope that this will give us the strength, selfesteem and will to fight to end the season with a few more wins.
We will go to Norrtälje to play the Dockers this coming saturday (Sept 1) – let’s hope we can put a dent i their successfull season
If you find yourself in Norrtälje on saturday, come down and cheer us on!
All for one, All for Årsta!!
