Last Wednesday we played the ‘first-year match’. We competed with as many first-year members as possible against the student korfball club from Nijmegen, SkunK. Débaldérin ultimately fielded six new members and five old members. In the beginning it took some time to get used to each other, since we don’t know each other’s way of playing yet. That made it a bit chaotic. Fortunately, we were able to work around this quickly and had a great time playing together.

After the first half we were not far behind SkunK and we were hopeful that we might still be able to take the win. In the second half, however, SkunK came up with some nice points and they also won 13-7. It was a fun and sporty match to play and therefore a good introduction for the new Débaldérinners.
