U14's Regional play offs in Swindon ....
This was an early Start, & cold for this young squad, only 2 courts for all the tournament, 2 matches played at the same time , meant the girls could watch the opposition before they play, the first match v Lawn was a nail biter, it took the girls a while to get sorted, made it hard work but came through with a draw .
No rest 2nd match v Pinehurst , all players still warm from the other match, & it showed they took control from the first whistle & won by 5.
Match 3 playing Local team v Old Chelts, this is always a tricky match, but the u14's really dug deep & won the 2nd match of the day.
Match 4 v Bournemouth, this was a real tussle for both teams, shooters not missing either end & ended up with the 2nd draw.
Match 5 v Team Jets, this was far the best match u14's played all day, with defence getting majority of the tips & interceptions, shooters converting & working so well as a team, won by 3.
Match 6 v Poole, the team were getting tired but it didn't stop them , fighting for every ball , another great match with tips & interceptions coming from each end, this paid off & won the last match by 6, but we still needed to wait to see where they came at the end, all knew they got into the next round, but some teams still had matches to play, as always it depended who won & lost for the u14's to be winners or runners up! They were WINNERS!!!
