Prosecco 11-1 Breakages

With slick logistics & precision timing, the ladies 3s began their warm up to the penultimate league match. The ibis (budget) hotel didn’t know what hit them in the first 10 mins of the warm up routine; baggage & bottles galore ... we surely had overdone it for just one night away....

A strong press around the lift & Triangular movement along the corridor, the team kept possession of all the baggage & bottles and netted their wares into the tiny room space...first bottle popped..1-0 ahead !

Room 426 was designated party room & the game progressed with ‘name (the player for) that tune’. 2-0, 3-0... the ladies were on a roll!!

A team huddle & captains pressie resulted in an unexpected &
spontaneous rain shower - thanks girls - & we were turbo-boosted with Uber ‘n out to All bar one for half time refreshments.

The second half went with a blur... sambuca & tequila were definitely involved, which may explain it and, at one point, there appeared to be 12 Flippas on the pitch. The scoring continued into double digits. Speaking of digits, I understand some were acquired... results to be reported at a later date, apparently ...

As we neared the final whistle, a concentrated crew returned to 426 & celebrated a successful close to the warm up... let’s see if it breeds success in the actual match!
