Hucclecote U16 Regional Team V Bournemouth


The U16 team took on Bournemouth at home in our first game back after the Christmas break. The team took control from the first whistle with shooters netting opportunities and interlinking well and defence turning the ball to allow for these opportunities. Mid-court trio of Tambling, O'Dwyer and Staley player the ball well down court and fed the shooters well however we started to drift off in the last 5 minutes of the quarter and needed to focus again but finished the quarter 12-2.


In the second quarter the team really stepped up their game, knowing every goal was vital. Defence were disciplined and took some fantastic interceptions and the team didn't make that many unforced errors in this quarter and extended the lead to 31-2.


In the third quarter more changes were made but this didn't make a difference everyone worked their hardest and performed. The team were working together and offering support to one another, finishing the game 59-6.


Thank you to all the support from the side as this is very much needed and appreciated. I was able to rest players this game ready for next week and give other players more opportunity which they proved they deserved; there was a nice team vibe as always supporting one another.


Well Done all on a brilliant performance and such a great win!


Team: Paige Reed, Heather Longbotham, Alicia Joynes, Shona O'Dwyer, Annabel Staley, Ellen Thrall, Catherine Tambling, Anna Martin, Catherine Taylor and Georgie Chillingworth.
