Hurricanes had a hard fought win over Challengers by 7 goals. After taking an early 4 goal lead in the first quarter, the team, who had never played together before, extended it to 6 by half time. Erin Howells@ GS linked well with new comer Vicky Kibble at GA. converting 37/48 between them. The mid court, Nicky Carvey, Shona O'Dwyer & Kirsty Trueman, worked tirelessly against very tight marking opponents to move the ball through court. Although errors were made through lack of communication & decision making, Hurricanes always had the edge.The circle defence of Rosanna Hurst & Lizza`Mitchell, working together for the first time, turned ball and rebounded well.
Player of the match - Lizza Mitchell.
