With the first team opposing the second team, the match was inevitably going to be a Didcot wipe-out, but which team were to triumph was anyone’s guess?!
With Dragons 2 with one player down, Dragons 1 stormed ahead in the end in a knock out victory of 26-6. Fantastic goals were scored by many players and both teams pulled together and played tremendously in a force of fiery wills to do their best for their teammates. Well done to all who played to such a high standard on Sunday and thank you to all supporters who came to cheer us on from the sidelines. Here’s to another fantastic korfball season 2016/2017! Go DRAGONS!
