Disaster - ball in the river! Ball even further away in river!

The ball was finally rescued in selfless acts by Mathew Peet, Thomas Sourmail and Miguel Angel Yescas Gonzales. The match then began with a vengeance; the final score was 9-7 (students to staff). During the game, Lee was shown the Yellow Card, although he did not pay much notice. After all, there was no referee. The full game can be seen on the movies below, using Windows Multimedia Player.
