This was Hucclecote Firebird’s first game in division 1 of the Gloucestershire U14 league and their winning ways from the tournament continued.

 

Firebirds started strongly putting into match play the set moves we had been working on at training and ended the first quarter 8-3 up.

 

The team continued to extend the lead in the 2nd quarter with lots of turnovers throughout the court which were converted into goals. At the end of the second quarter Firebirds were up 16-4.

 

In the 3rd quarter we took a bit of a dip in our performance as tiredness started to show with not utilising our turnovers and losing the ball through court however the team didn’t give up and they were still 22-9 up at the end of that quarter.

 

The final quarter we picked up again and took advantage of our turnovers we worked hard to get and won the game 33-12. This was a great squad performance; the girls listened and went out and played our game. Well Done all – Excellent start to the season and great support from all.

 

Team: Amber Meredith-Wilkes, Lottie Davies, Eli Hale, Megan Vickery, Jasmine Jackson (C), Eloise Fullwood, Erin Trendle, Jess Lear, Felicity Dye and Zara Ruffell.
