Hucclecote were ready and up for their second match of the season against Linden Historically our bogey team, HNC were focused to achieve another solid score line.
The first quarter saw Cote off to a sluggish start. Linden took their centre pass to goal and then converted off of Hucclecote’s. This quickly made HNC switch on and they then stormed a 6 goal run taking them back into control. The tried and tested starting 7 of Allison, Reed, O’Dwyer, Adams, Jones, Powell-Davis and Cook went to work and by the end of the Q we were 20 – 10 up.
The second quarter saw Anna Lebe on at WA and Lauren Hancock to C, this made Linden adjust their defensive strategy allowing HNC to further their dominance on the game. By half time the score had widened to 36 -20.
