Hucclecote struggled to get on top of a determined Essex, only winning by 3 - 42-39.
In a low scoring game with honours even at half time @ 18 all, it was a game where there were numerous turnovers by defenders at both ends. 
Sam Cook @ Gk was outstanding for Hucclecote making 18 turnovers throughout the game. Her performance deservedly gave her opposition player & Coaches player of the match. 
Shooters Rosie & Beth both converted well, with % in the top 80’s but they were denied many opportunities by the rangy Essex defence. 
By 3/4 time Hucclecote had edged into a slight 3 goal lead which they managed to hang onto in the final Q to take the 5 points.
