Another tough match for the girls in this Division on Saturday mornings.
The first quarter was a slow start for both the teams with lots of turnovers during the 12 minutes but unfortunately the oppositions shooters were more accurate then us and took a lead of 10 - 2. After a little regroup and a change of a few positions we kept our heads up but the oppositions pressure and accurate shooting meant they started to pull away to a very comfortable lead at half-time of 26 - 3. The girls all pulled together for the third quarter and some lovely shots from distance by our shooters meant we doubled our goals from the first half to 7 by the end of the quarter, though unfortunately the opposition did the same and at the end of the quarter the score was now 41 - 7 to them. In the final quarter I was proud to see that all the girls never gave up and although some were playing in unfamiliar positions still kept fighting till the very end. The final score of 56 - 9 was not a true reflection of the hard work on court all the girls gave and their determination never to stop trying. The matches is this division are a lot harder then the other leagues we are in but the determination they are showing and the tough opposition they are playing is helping to improve their skills and benefiting them in the other leagues, with some impressive team work being showed.
Really pleased with how hard all the girls are working and can see improvement from all in all areas of the court with moments of lovely play from our defense through the court to our mid-court and shooters which is not reflected in the scorelines.
Keep the hard work going as each match is making you stronger and so pleased that you all never stop fighting.
