I took up target shooting with Paramount Targetsports during February 2008. I choose Paramount because they were the only club that had weekly club nights and had a website linked to from the website.

We got off to a good start and got out to 2-0 pretty quickly. Our traitor reinforced opponents clawed the margin back to 3-2 (our way) by half time. After an aggressive start in the second term we conceded (on my goal keeping) to our traitorus player about 8 minutes in. We were the next to score and regained the lead with 4-3 but the enemy struck back shortly thereafter bringing us to our full time score of 4-4 with 9 minutes remaining. Those last nine minutes were a bit of a slugfest with us all standing toe to toe and going hard.

We aren’t sure if we will see [name redacted] at our games any more although if he was to appologise – he might be welcomed back.

We have a bye next week so all should be quiet on this front for a couple of weeks.
