the sweet scent of victory
I have never felt such an adrenalin rush after winning a match as I did this week. When the final whistle went, I couldnít stop smiling. Even though we only beat Nottingham 1 Ė 0 it was such a relief to actually win and keep a clean sheet, something we have found difficult these past years. It would be great if we can actually stay up…
At the moment we are in 4th position if we get an advantage over Nottingham because we beat them, which would mean that weíll not get relegated this year. However were we to go on goal differences, Nottingham should be just ahead of us. Good news is that Nottingham is playing Loughborough as their last game, whereas we have UEA. So far Loughborough is unbeaten :)
To guarantee that we stay up we need to beat UEA on Wednesday, and I think that following our recent winning streak, we should be able to. Even a draw should be enough, but in the unlikely event that Nottingham actually wins over Loughborough itíd be nice to for once actually beat our arch-enemy from last year, even if itís only to make the journey worth while.
So anyway, the match today has given me so much excess energy so Iíve actually done loads since I came home: Iíve cleaned my boots, tidied up my room, washed my bed covers, sent and written an e-mail, oh and Iíve actually done all my seminar work for this week. Who needs amphetamine?? Beating Nottingham has left me on such a high.
