Wild Lions’ Intensive Four-Game Match Day Review

The Wild Lions Inline Hockey Team participated in the latest BRHA West League match day this past Sunday. The day’s challenges were amplified by a rigorous schedule, requiring the team to compete in four games, two of which were against the top three teams in the league. Unfortunately, the team was already at a disadvantage with the absence of Caz, and the situation was further exacerbated by the loss of their leading goal scorer, Grace, due to an injury sustained in her Ice Games.

Confronted with a demanding lineup and a limited roster of six players, the league graciously permitted the enlistment of Andrew from the Lions Black squad. Andrew, noted for his significant progress in recent weeks and as one of the younger talents, was a welcome addition.

The first match against T-Wrex, although resulting in a 4-1 defeat, was approached with a positive spirit. The team’s commendable performance was reflective of their dedication to playing hockey with integrity and sportsmanship.

In the second game against Lycans, the Wild Lions faced a seasoned opponent. Despite a challenging first period that concluded with a 6-1 deficit, the team rallied in the second period, ultimately conceding only one additional goal for a final score of 7-1.

The third encounter pitted the team against Macclesfield White, a team that has demonstrated considerable growth over recent seasons. The match commenced competitively, with both teams exchanging numerous shots and blocks. However, the cumulative fatigue from prior games became evident, and Macclesfield White capitalized on this, securing an 8-1 victory.

The final game of the day, a rematch against Macclesfield White, saw the Wild Lions exert their remaining energy. Despite their valiant efforts, Macclesfield White prevailed with a decisive 12-0 win.

Despite the day’s outcomes, the Wild Lions have numerous positive takeaways. Notably, this was the first occasion the team scored in three consecutive games, an impressive feat considering the absence of their key player, Grace.

The team’s tactical development was also evident, with improved passing and the implementation of effective playing styles, particularly during breakaways.

The Wild Lions have shown remarkable improvement since the season’s commencement. The team’s participation is aimed at bolstering game day experience and competitiveness in preparation for the upcoming On The Rocks Tournament. The progress observed in each player’s performance is a testament to the efficacy of this approach.

Special gratitude is extended to Andrew for his last-minute involvement and for his positive feedback, expressing enjoyment and appreciation for the team’s unwavering optimism and camaraderie.

Looking ahead, the Wild Lions are set to return to action on May 5th. In the interim, training sessions will resume on Monday evenings from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm at Ardwick Sports Centre, with a focus on further enhancements to confront Lions Black & Raiders.

For those interested in inline hockey or seeking a team, the Wild Lions extend an invitation to join one of the five weekly training sessions. For additional information, please contact info@lionsihc.co.uk.
