Today four eager players from NHHI came to Fantofthallen to play a friendly match against BSI. Unfortunately the rest of the team were not able to join, but we solved it by lending two BSI players that are not going to the tournament in Trondheim to NHHI. In addition we lent one woman in turn so that NHHI had one female player, and all the women got equal play time with BSI.
The first match started very well for BSI, and we took a good lead, but then NHHI figured out our game plan, and managed to force errors. Those errors they converted to points of their own. The match ended 5-4 to BSI.
The second match was very close. Actually so close that I lost count of the score. But that says a lot of how fun the game was, since it was not all about the points.
When we played the third and final match, several players were running out of steam. NHHI made a lot of good (albeit risky) throws, while BSI (with me leading the way) threw away a lot of discs.
The spirit was great, and lots of goals were scored both ways. It was great to play against players from another team, as we could then see how players that haven’t practised with us think, and what we need to do to stop them.
Thanks to NHHI for taking the trip to visit us. We hope to get similar friendly matches before December cup, Brainy Disc and Fire and Ice.
