The Butterfly's started slow this match with everyone trying to keep warm under the freezing temperatures. Both teams made some silly mistakes but with some quick direct passes down the court the Butterfly's were able to take an early lead of 2 goals at the end of the 1st quarter.
2 sets of fresh legs were sent on at the quick change point and the Butterfly's continued the momentum they had finished with to dominate in the 2nd quarter and extend their lead by 12 goals. Good pressure in our defensive circle by Alex & Lucy was rewarded by quick movement & decision making from our mid court players, Josie, Lois & Ciara to be finished off in our attacking circle by Evie & Eleanor. At half time the score was 18 - 6 to the Butterflys.
For the 3rd quarter we went back to our opening combination with Isla & Jasmine in our shooting circle, all other positions remained the same. Weybridge moved some of their players around to try and deny us the space and fast transition the Butterfly's had displayed. Much better movement from the shooters in this quarter meant we were able to keep possession of the ball and safely deliver it into a scoring position to our shooters to extend our lead at the end of the 3rd quarter.
The 4th quarter continued all the hard work from the previous quarters with another change to our 2nd quarter combination. All the girls continued piling on the pressure we had shown the whole way through the match with some fantastic interceptions in the mid court to result in an impressive score at the final whistle of 33 -13 to the Butterfly's.
This was a great achievement by all 9 players this evening as the last time we played this team before Christmas we lost by 4 goals. Well done to everyone, was great to watch.
