Hucclecote v Team Jets
Hucclecote U16 squad took on Team Jets at Canford School and knew this wasn't going to be easy but had every confidence they could come away with a win. The game started and Jets took the lead however Hucclecote pulled it back to be just down by 2 at the end of the first quarter. Captain Martin had to come off due to injury which meant Taylor moved across to GD and Thrall took the court at WD. Both teams played good play, fast and efficient through court and shooters converted well. At half time it was 17-17. The third quarter came and jets stormed it, something just didn't seem to work for Hucclecote in that quarter so this was going to be a tough fight back because at ¾ time it was 32-19 to jets. A change of line up again and Hucclecote started to click again and the fight back began but we just couldn't pull back the lead with the final score 38-32 to Jets.
Hucclecote showed great determination on and off the court and offered support to one another. A great squad spirit and we know this competition is going to be tough throughout the season.
Well done Team!
