Hucclecote B 56 v Bournemouth 27
Regional 2 travelled to Bournemouth for their second clash of the season. The first quarter started slowly with Hucclecote only managing a 4 goal lead. A storming second quarter saw Hucclecote turn ball and steal 5 consecutive centre passes all converted to goal, still keeping possession of their own. Solid shooting from Kellie and Sarah forged a 14 goal lead by the end of the period. Tight defence from Beckie Campbell and Hayley Neate put Bournemouth's shooters under immense pressure, errors were forced and ball turned.
Hucclecote gained momentum with each minute. Captain, Kate Nicholls showed pace and flair at Centre and worked effortlessly with Millie Price at WA. By the end of the third quarter we had reduced our errors and dominated the game.
The final quarter was a case of finishing off the job. The girlsstuck to task to exploit Bournemouth's weaknesses. Only 5 goals got past Hucclecote allowing us to come away with a great score line and high hopes for the remaining games of the season.
