Second’s Season Summary:

Starting slow, the second’s strategy for silverware seemed sedate. Squad supervisors were sparse, summer-season skills squandered. The season’s starting stretch showed sloppiness. Sweeps were shoddy, slaps were shaky, and shots were shabby.

Seemingly in September, midfielders were susceptible to sloppy stops, stampedes smashed our sweepers, Senan’s shield shaken, strikers starved but static, scores were scarce.

So sorrowful even Stu was summoned.

But the second’s stayed stubborn.

A strong, straightforward success versus the shy students stopped the slide. Spirits began to swell.

Scotty stayed staunch. Steals threatened but Simon stood solid. Sheehan stabbed ‘em in, Seany with serious solo speed sporadically, Bam Bam Borland scoring shrewd strokes. Selfies were snapped, subs were scrambled, sticks began striking, stout was swigged.


Snow stalled the soar. Scraped and slogged through a spate of strong sides. Season salvaged.
