Imperials Battled In Sherwood
May 7, 2019. I am happy to report that Old
Nicks played Imperials almost to a standoff last weekend. We
acquitted ourselves very well against Imperials. Sadly, we were
totally blitzed by Nunn who scored an estimated 7 goals in the match
leaving one for Jay Abramowitz to knock home in addition.
The game was not so lopsided in play— a lean Nicks side with the
excellent help of Tim Evans at sweeper, Manus O’Donnell at midfield
and Rob Johnson in both the defense and midfield— did our best against
the Imperials who had called on Nunn to fill out their side. The
result was a hardship for our crew, despite good play on the field
getting the ball forward.
When all was said and done, many of
us retired to Ancestry
Brewing out in Sherwood and had a great time.
Saturday (5/11/19) is our next match against Royals. I have about nine
players who’ve confirmed they will be there.. I have at least nine
players whose status is unknown. Please send me a 10-44 on your
intended whereabouts on Saturday for the game.
January 15, 2019. Team Manager David Porter has made
arrangements for Old Nicks to own a
Philips AED machine (automated external defibrillator), soon to be
available at all future matches. It appears that most all the managers
of GPSD Over-58 teams are acquiring these lifesaving devices. If you
want to see a demo of the Philips AED in operation, here's a
You Tube video
demonstrating the simplicity of its use.
