Great game by the 1st team tonight we did well to hold them for a lot of the first half but we just could
Not score it went round and round the basket but would not go in. Final score 17 - 2 to Knights 3.
So this is how it went. 1st team played well but went down 21 - 7 to a good Norwich City 1 team.
3rd team also played very well and had an enjoyable victory 12 - 4 against UEA 5.
Norfolk Dragons got the new season of to a bang in training, working hard on our attacking movement and shooting technique before some work on 3 vs 2 and 1vs 1 situations .
After a fabulous turn out last week for our first senior session of the season (26 people!) I am proud to announce that Dragons are starting junior sessions tonight (Wed 16th Sept 2015) and will also be continuing the senior sessions. Now it a great chance to invite a friend for a taster session and get them addicted to the sport!.

Dragons 1 vs Ice 2
6 - 5
team; Charlie, Lawrence, Jackie, Brenda - Michael, Neil, Amber, Becky. sub; Mickey.
A game which has often been a banana skin for our fine club was entered with high spirits with it being the first team's final game of the season.
With Dragons fielding a team which was deprived of 3 first team starters it was always going to be a difficult game. However as the game began it was clear that the difference in quality between out first team and second is minimal as those who came in played superbly which bodes well for next season as competition for starts heats up.
Dragons started positively with an early goal from a free pass which was won and them scored by Michael After minimal contact from his defender. 1-0 Dragons. Ice responded immediately making the score 1-1 as divisions switched roles.
This led to a period of solid Dragons defending with Ice often having their feed cut and losing position and all players in the Dragons' defence winning their collects and forcing Ice into one shot attacks. this left our attack in control to try and gain us a lead.
Goals proved hard to come by for both sides in the first half but eventually the deadlock was broken and a splendid quick short shot by Jackie kept us in the game after we had sadly conceded against the run of play. All change just before half time.
Enter the second half and Ice were looking flustered at their lack of possession constantly seeking advice from the side lines as their attacks were stifled by some reactive rebound defence by Charlie and Michael while the rest of the teams positioning meant we stole collection countless times.
We saw some superb driving runs from Amber whose progress as an attacker has been pleasing to witness. Once those running in shots start to drop she will be quite the threat, scoring and winning penalties I am sure. Becky showed great fight in collect dominating the post as Neil and Michael began to find their range.
Finally a break through came after a superb mickey (on for Neil) feed left Michael through on goal only to be fouled as he shot earning his team a penalty which was promptly finished.
A unlucky concession left the scores level as Charlie , Lawrence , Jackie and Brenda sought a winning goal. A well won penalty left dragons with a chance but suddenly ice called a time out before the penalty was taken. This somewhat unsporting call was oddly made by the ref and sadly the pause led to a lack of concentration and a miss. as the game entered the final few minutes a running in shot was unfairly blocked and another penalty awarded. Charlie this time kept nerve and focus and scored to take the game!
A truly well earned hard fought victory which proved not only our teams spirit but its quality in depth. Superb.
A special mention to Brenda who made her first team return in a difficult match and did not look at all out of place showing real fight in collect and winning free passes for cutting showing real game intelligence.
