Hucclecote versus Academy November 17th 2013
The run up to the start of the match was unpredictable with players carrying and acquiring injuries busy work schedules. However the squad were not disrupted in their match preparations despite Ian Fuller (umpire) and Hannah Jeavons stuck in dreadful traffic on the M5!! As a result Dave who came to watch the match was drafted in to umpire until Ian Fuller arrived, after raiding the lost property box!!!
Hannah unfortunately had to abandon her journey after 3 hours on the road but her effort and commitment to her team was appreciated.
We made a steady start with Paige Reed stepping up in Hannah's absence and she worked hard to create space and shooting opportunities for herself and Rosie. Gemma and Kerry feed the circle with precision and confidence and worked tirelessly in defence.
Our defencive unit worked well against a slightly unorthodox attacking circle, and made timely turn overs which were used wisely and converted relentlessly by Rosie and Paige.
At half time Sarah Adams came on at WD and Jack Gabriel moved to GD.
Ian Fuller the umpire arrived and Hucclecote continued to play precision, whilst showing variety in attacking strategy. The team maintained their focus and poise despite changes in personnel and executed the game plan for all 4 quarters. It was on of our most consistent performance with 88% overall shooting stats and a "total team " performance.
