Final score: WaHo HS 4 – AETOS HS 11 (1-3)
This week it is finally that time of the year again that the posterboys of Waho are allowed to brighten up your day with another beauty of a match report. Take a comfortable seat and a nice drink and read about the wonderful adventures of Gents 4(-0) (or Gents (0-)4, depending if it is a home or away match).
Last Friday it was time again for a spectacle of skill, determination and tactical prowess* as we had to square off against the number 4 team (what a lovely place in the standings) AETOS HS11. Unlucky there was a miscommunication with whomever allocates the fields because to our dismay (and that of our cheerleaders) we were put on one of the back fields. To add injury to insult our beloved trainer and coach Gijs? Was not able to attend the match and lend us his tactical knowledge and charming looks. With some improvising we were able to get our cripples ‘broken finger’ Gijs? and ‘busted knee’ Gijs? to be our moral coaches (actually just glorified cheerleaders) of that evening.
Luckily we like a challenge and started the match with our spirits high. With the tactical prowess of our coaches (of whom one didn’t even know the current system and positions of the players due to him betraying the team for half a year to dick around in Austria) we started the match with a bang. Blink and it was over, and unfortunately we underestimated our opponents, that is what you get when Gijs?, Gijs? and Gijs? are always so cocky and Gijs! can’t properly serve so we lost the first two sets with a score we won’t talk about because you want to get happy while reading this. Well of course we just like to play with our food, so after this general repetition we started the actual match with renewed energy, mainly because our coach Gijs? just screams so much. Realising they needed to change something our coaches Gijs? and Gijs? made some drastic measures and started the third set with Gijs!, Gijs?, Gijs!, Gijs!, Gijs? and Gijs? in the field and benching Gijs? and Gijs?. With this bold move Gents4 started the 3rd set by completely rolling over AETOS, forcing two quick timeouts out of them. Enjoying a challenge we gave them some free points because who likes a stomp, and after a while it was 20-20, or a similar score. The old Gents4 would succumb to the dreaded 20 point panic and throw away the set but with their two bold new coaches guiding** the team we overcame our past weaknesses and won the set 25-23!! That is something you didn’t expect while reading a match report of Gents4 (you can admit it, we can take it).
I think afterwards we forgot to play the 4th set.
