MATCH REPORTS SAT 8th Nov
HURRICANES V GLOUCESTER LADIES LOSS 25-37
This was Hurricanes first real test of the season with Gloucester Ladies taking an early 3 goal lead.
Hurricanes attack struggled to settle, with lost possession and missed shots for most of the game. Defensively, there were many turnovers, and through court Hurricanes moved the ball with precision and speed. It was in the final third that they found it difficult to penetrate Glos's tight marking circle defence. When they did, any missed shot was gathered up by the defence who had a big height advantage.
The final result was disappointing, but credit to Gloucester Ladies who performed better on the day.
