Match report for Premier Division 1
Hucclecote versus Thoroughbreds.
Hucclecote premier squad made a great start to their 2013-2014 campaign in Premier Division 1 by securing a 20 goal victory against newly promoted Thoroughbreds.
The squad made a confident start taking a 5 goal lead, but Thoroughbreds came back after the quarter time break and made Hucclecote work for every goal. Thoroughbreds had a dominant GS who shot consistently well and punished us for any unforced errors. However Hucclecote responded well to the pressure and reduced their error rate.
Multiple changes were made at half time, with the return of Sarah Adams at WA, Gemma Gray into GS. One of our debutants Katherine Chadwick took to the court at GD.
Hucclecote adapted well to the changes and won the quarter
In the final quarter Paige Reed our 16 year old debutant took to the court at GA accompanying Flo Edwards in the shooting circle and was instrumental in Hucclecote securing their first win of the season with an impressive 55-35 final score!!
Squad: Flo Edwards, Hannah Jeavons, Gemma Gray, Paige Reed, Neala Brennan, Laura Smith, Lauren Brooks, Kerry Walsh, Jack Gabriel, Sarah Adams, Sam Perry, Katherine Chadwick.
Thank you to the whole squad for their patience and commitment to the game plan, to Sue, Michelle and Gilly for their support on the bench. I would also like to thank all the parents (especially Mr. Jeavons for recording the whole game for us!) and all the supporters for coming to the game. Finally I would like to extend my gratitude to the heroic scorers who cheerfully took on the challenge of the IFNA score sheets, like true professionals!
