So last night I went and played hockey. We had our club playing, and decided to join up forces and mix our team with another club which was all very quick skilled Bangladeshi and Indian and Sri Lankans.

There were only 3 of us females playing, and it was going to be a tough match. I was having a ball of a time, and I was actually pretty decent considering I haven’t played in years until the incident happened. One of the girls was a 15 year old girl and she was on the opposing team. One of our defenders, 6ft Englishman who hadn’t played in 6 years and even then only played with rugby players, decided to swing his stick wildly and connected with the bridge of this young girls nose.

So much blood. So my dad, my bro and I quickly patched her up and got her sorted out.
Afterwards we were jokingly argueing as to who was the most qualified to have done so.

Greg who is freshly graduated as a Radiographer but does not have his first aid certificate.
My dad who used to do first age and stitch up people back in the day on ships but does not have his first aid..
Me who has a current first aid qualification and Bronze Medallion and Open Sea Rescue.

We all thought it was ourselves.
We dropped the girl off at home – as the parents didn’t want us taking her to hospital to get stitches. She needed around 4.

Did the check up call today. They aren’t taking her in, the poor girl is going to have a massive scar now for the rest of her life.

Poor thing.
