A local derby against the all familiar Bath Toucans was always going to be a tough game. The Hucclecote squad was rejoined by Rosie Allison at GS, it was great to see her back on the red and black dress

Team Bath took early control of the game and we found themselves 5-1 down in the first 6 minutes, however they kept their composure, worked together on court and clawed they way back to a one goal difference at half time.

Katherine Chadwick came on at GD and Jack Gabriel moved to WD. Gemma gray came on at GA. The game was riddled with unforced error by both teams and possession switched multiple times between the very closely matched teams.

At half time we remained one goal adrift of the toucans but the amount of possession in the midcourt was moving in our favour.

Simply slowing the pace of our game being patient and placing the ball accurately for our shooters made the difference in the third quarter.  (quarter score 14-10). We took the lead for the first time 34-31 at three quarter time.

Hucclecote pushed Bath Toucans hard not prepared to allow them an extra point. Our patience paid off and we reduced their shooting opportunities and converted our opportunities with clinical precision and poise.

 

A great team effort another important win, final score 45-38.

 

Overall shooting stats 75%
