Hucclecote made a good start and worked steadily and stuck to the match plan, they played, in a new formation in the attacking end with the debut for Chelsea lewis. The defence work well as a unit and managed to gain three vital interceptions which were successfully converted. Hucclecote led at quarter time 16-11.

Jack was replaced by Steph Myddelton due to illness andSteph came in and worked well with Katherine Chadwick at GK, forcing long range shots and reduced the shooting opportunities of Asha, Baths GA. Bath came back hard in the second quarter and their defence around the circle edge and pressure from our centre passes, forced us to alter our game plan. However HannahJeavons and Chelsea, remained focused and calm despite a close score line and built up a good understanding in the goal circle. Second quarter score was  Hucclecote 26- Bath Toucans 21.

Kerry Walsh came on at half time at WA and played with patience and control, and the team again made valuable interceptions. At times we were pressured into making difficult passes through the centre court and into our shooters, but Hucclecote maintained  high work rate in attack and defence to maintain the lead at three quarter time 39-35.

 

In the final quarter Laura smith moved to Centre, Yazparsons moved to WA, and jack Gabriel came back  on to GD, and Steph Myddelton moved to WD. The new combination took a while to settle, and a further change was required following an injury time. Kerry Walsh returned to the court at WA, and Yaz Parsons returned to the centre position. Hucclecote resettled and found a reliable path to goal which were converted cleanly by Hannah and Chelsea.

Final score 46-49, our first win of the season.
