Hucclecote V Randwick
Score: 45 – 23
Hucclecote U16 regional squad took on local team Randwick in the north east regional league. Hucclecote knew this wasn't going to be an easy game to win and knew that Randwick wanted it just as much we did. Hucclecote got off to a slow start allowing Randwick to dominate but managed to pull together in the final few minutes to take the lead by 2 at the end of the first quarter.
After team changes and team talk at quarter time Hucclecote picked their game up in the second quarter building on their lead and playing some good quick release.
In the third quarter more team changes and Hucclecote continued to dominate in this physical match converting well and defending much tighter through court to force the errors.
In the final quarter Hucclecote really started to play their game and pushed up into 5th gear letting the ball move quickly and turning the ball all through court as a team backing one another up.
Defensive units of Taylor, Martin and Chillingworth worked hard to the turn the ball whilst Thrall, Tambling backed up well as WD through court. Staley and O'Dwyer gave some fantastic feeds into the shooters and shooters Longbotham, Reed and Joynes worked hard to find the space.
Another much needed win – well done all 10 of you!!!
