Hucclecote Comets 31 - Hucclecote Stars 53
The first game of the RL2 season saw both Hucclecote Regional teams come head to head.
The first quarter was evenly matched with both teams demonstrating great netball. Stars took a while to settle in their new combinations whilst Comets moved the ball quickly and effectively through mid court easily finding their shooters. End of Q score was 12 - 12
By the second quarter Stars had gained control and managed to reduce their error rate from Q1. Accurate shooting from Michelle Dowle and Paige Reed allowed Stars to secure a 10 goal lead by the end of the period.
Stars built on their lead over the second half of the game. Great unit work from the defensive trio of Katharine Chadwick, Claire Richards and Lucy Werrell made Comets work hard to penetrate their shooting third. Our defence's efforts paid off as turnovers were converted taking Stars further ahead. Mid court linked well with Sarah Adams controlling play well and executing stunning feeds into the circle.
A promising start to the season for Hucclecote Stars.
Squad: K. Hull, P Reed, M Dowle (c), B Webb, J Webb, S Adams, L Werrell, K Chadwick, C Richards.
