Germinators 9 v 13 Snakehips

West Wirral Snakehips vs Rhein Rhur Germinators

A new team was in town as the West Wirral Snakehips arrived to take on the giants of the game. Henning Wehn’s Germinators had yet to chalk up a victory in their first two matches and the long armed German hero was hoping that experience would send the wonders in white green and red to victory.


As usual Henning started from the bench opting to coach his 75% English team to an early lead. It worked as Thia Russell was on fire early shooting and blocking the Germinators into a 3-2 lead.


The Snakehips fought back in the second Andy all over the pitch blocking and shooting, leaving the game delicately poised at half time.


The third quarter was very much the quarter of the Henning, the German captain scoring from all over the field. Suddenly they looked like champions propelled into an 8-5 lead. The Snakehips still playing good Volfsball but hurt by near misses shooting from the field.


Within seconds of the fourth quarter, the Snakehips hit form, Rob suddenly finding shooting form, and the team surging back to 8-8. Tension was rife as with less than the minute to go both teams searched for their first win. Then like a bolt from the blue Andy crushed the Germinators with a Volfsball. As usual most players didn’t realise this had happened and the game had to be stopped while video footage was consulted. The Volfsball was confirmed, the Snakehips up 13-9. The Germinators were left still looking for their first win, while the debutants celebrated a fine victory.


13 – 9
