Weiz 09 - Chicks! Chicks! Chicks!

After all the troubles we had with getting on the tournament list and making a roster, we finally got to Weiz. Our first game was at 11 so we had enough time to sleep and wait for all our players to arrive. First game was against our neighbors Slovenians and their team To Mi Deli. Game started really good, we played amazingly. I know this is a bad thing to say, but I didn’t expect us to play that well. I think they were also a bit surprised, so when the game was tied they called for time out. After that they got better, we got tired, lost focus, and unfortunately, lost the game. Final score was 9:4.

Next game was against Austrian team W.adies. We played good, but we were still a bit tired from the last game, and couldn’t do our best. Game was lost 13:5. 

Our last game on Saturday was against Slovakian team Outsisterz. We made a big mistake there by underestimating them. We thought that they are young, new team, but they turned out to be completely opposite. First 7 points we were completely lost on the field. Then we finally realized that we are here to play and have fun, but it was too late. We lost that game 11:2. But this game taught us never to underestimate our opponents, and to always have fun, no matter what the score is.

Next day we started differently. Our first game on Sunday was also at 11. On Sunday all our previous games didn’t matter, we could still be placed from 1st to 8th place, but we didn’t care about that anymore. Our first game was against Woodchicas. They won all their games on Saturday and they are one of the best German womens teams. They played zone against us, but we were finally playing as a team and we were beating their zone. True, we didn’t score many goals, because we were a bit lost when we got to the end zone. But in the middle of the field we were beating their zone! We lost this game 14:3, but we were really happy that we scored that 3 goals, and with the fact that they didn’t have that easy time against us.

Next game was against Italian team Tane Malefiche. This was our best game on the tournament. Our teams were pretty equal, so we had really tight game. On defense we finally played zone in our goal zone and that worked very well. Thanks Zdravka for thinking of that, Chris for teaching me how zone should work, and also big thanks to our boys on sideline, they were a big help in this game. We were winning this game, but then we got tired and at the end of the game score was tied. We played one more point, and we lost. Game ended 8:7 for them, but I’m not disappointed with that ending. It was really good tied game, and I’m looking forward to play with that team again. 

Our last game was against Hot Pants. Again we made the same mistake as with Outsisterz. We all hoped that this will be the one game that we will win, but Chie got injured, we were tired, and Hot Pants improved a lot since the last time we played against them. Game was lost 7:4.

We ended up last on the tournament, but I think no one should feel bad for that. It was the first time we played as all Croatian team (plus Aswee, but she played with us already so much, so I count her as ours) and we had a few new players and I’m satisfied with our play. Our goal was to improve and learn on this tournament, and we did that. Our new players, Mirna and Ines learned the most. They were really amazing on the tournament, they knew where they should be during the game, and had some pretty good throws. And our other players were also amazing. Linda was throwing herself all over the field. Guess she took really seriously that: The disc is gold, don't drop it. Zdravka suggested that zone defence in our goal zone that was a big help against Italians. Aswee and Chie had some great throws and deep catches. And Marta had some good middle field trows and well timed cutting. All in all it was a great tournament and i' looking forward playing on the next tournament with Chicks With Disks!
