Lightning v Chelts Loss 22- 25
This closely contested game was really any ones up to the final few minutes. Chelts started much the stronger taking an early 5 goal lead in the first quarter. Lizza`Mitchell coming on a GK turned the game making numerous interceptions giving Lightning more opportunities to convert.
By ¾ time scores were level once again but Lightning still struggled to get the ball through court, often losing possession in the attacking third.
At the back the defence trio, Mitchell, Helen Harrold & Catherine Taylor were outstanding, turning over possession numerous times. Chelts edged into a narrow 3 goal lead in the last few minutes, which Lightning couldn't quite close.
