Hucclecote Comets V Premier Romans
Comets first game of the season was against one of the more experienced teams in the league and our plan was to do all the basics really well and keep possession through patience.
With a few new faces comets took to the court and demonstrated a fantastic first quarter of short, sharp netball finding our shooters Claire and Jane with relative ease against a very experienced (ex superleague) defender. We finished the first quarter at 13-13.
Throughout the rest of game Comets continued to execute bursts of excellent play however Premier Romans started to pull away and their experience of playing together started to show.
The match finished 36-45 to Premier Romans. This loss however did not reflect the skill and determination on court and we have taken an abundance of positives away from this game – ready for the rematch away!
Squad –Claire Carter, Jane Taylor, Sam Hogg, Jodie Blampied, Jo Hutchings, Poppy Hoskins and Becky Campbell.
Shooting statistics: Jane – 69% Claire 62%
