One and Two is the Theme for Shock Teams

Apologies for the down time, but the website is back up and running and here is the latest update on Swindon Shock Local and National teams.

 

Shock National got their first win Against Essex Blades before losing a late game by 3 points to Oxford Brookes University.  Shock are welcoming the bye week to get a few injuries sorted out and will look to be ready for a home game against Solent in a few weeks time.

 

Locally Shock won their first game against Speedwell, with Junior players committing to an all out press that helped the team overcome a 10 point deficit before pulling off a victory.  The road appeared a difficult task for the young team as they fell Devizes followed by a nail bitter at home to Totterdown.  Full match reports to come:
