Under 16's 34 v Team Bath 35
This match had so much pressure on the girls, coach & parents we needed to win to make sure to play in the Nationals .........
Started off 1st qtr 3 goals ahead this was going to be a close match, shooting circle were finding it hard one caring an injury, movement just wasn't happening, so changes were made 2nd qtr, both teams were working hard down court,the pressure from both paid off they were so tight making errors crept in, it could go either way, at the end of the 2nd qtr we were 1 goal down, putting fresh legs in defence & changing the shooting circle to have more movement, this did work & disrupted Team Bath, only for 5 minutes, this was the same after 3 rd qtr 27-28, having all to play for team went out ahead in the match, but this didn't last lost a couple of goals, Team Batch converted & we were 5 goals down, but the team dug deep , had crucial tips & interceptions, it could of gone either 34-35 at Hucclecote's end time was running out bench was shouting, parents the pressure was too much & lost by one goal.
The girls played awesome, they took so much pressure on & off court , we all thought that was the end of the Nationals BUT after the match we found out Jets had lost to Saints, so this was a chance for us to get back in the running for the nationals, the next match 23rd February at home 1.30 .
