It was coach Jordo who put a riddle to the team after the game against Solna on the JCG – What do you get if you take the team captain, last season’s BnF, winner of the SAFF goal kicking comp, a board member, a stay at home dad, someone at choir practice, a pair of exchange students and one or two national team players? I’ll tell you, you get a full team not on the field today! Not even Bluey’s here! It’s not good enough!
Söder came to play with 9 players, but it was all uphill from there. Ivan ripped his hamstring after 3 minutes of play, leaving Söder effectivly one man short for the game. Iron Guts, still in rehab from a knee injury after pre season curling, pulled on the jersey and settled in the goal square after first quarter. Södermalm largely balanced the game until half time, although failing to convert good play into goals, much thanks to a massive effort by Bull, Oscar and Rob ‘Mr T’ in the ruck.
