Lightening had a disappointing loss this week against a determined Cirencester side. During the first half of the match both Hucclecote and Cirencester could not take the lead and the score was often level. Wendy Burgess and Kathryn Honeywill played for the first time together in the shooting circle and their accurate shooting kept them level with Cirencester. Lilly Simmons and Hannah Butler came up from the Hucclecote Storm squad and both raised their game to play confidently in the first division.
Charlotte Budden and Toni Lowery made a number of interceptions in defence but too many obstruction errors meant Cirencester had many clear shots and with their accurate shooting it was no wonder that they managed to take the lead. Lightening could not quite catch up in the final quarter and lost by 7 goals.
