CORNWALL SAINTS 29 – HNC STARS 63
After a shaky start Hucclecote Stars controlled their away game v Saints. With several key players missing it was Laura Butler who stepped up to assist this RL1 team continue their winning ways. The newcomer looked strong and confident at GA and worked well with Betsy Willey at GS to notch up this impressive goal tally.
In mid court the tried and tested combination of Sarah Adams (C), Helen Werrell and Helen Hynes worked the ball though court at pace. Precision feeds from Adams and Hynes found Star's shooters effortlessly. At half time Shona O'Dwyer took to court bringing an injection of pace to the mid court unit.
In defence Jo Hutchings and Hannah Leger were solid and made Saint's shooters work hard, with the attack having to play the ball back when all forward options were denied by HNC's defence.
Once again Stars showed resilience and depth against a young Saints squad of impressive emerging talent.
