Hucclecote Comets vs Crossbow (Away ) Saturday 7th November


Our second ‘top of the table’ clash this season came against last year’s r Reg1 team Crossbow. We knew that we were going to face an experienced team that were going to be very difficult to beat, and they didn’t disappoint.

The first quarter got off to a flying start with lots of contested ball where neither team could get into a rhythm, but the young side of Comets kept their composure to take the lead 13-11. Whilst as a team we were playing fine, we weren’t having the impact on the game that was required to take a victory and so whole sale changes came in the second quarter, which similar to previous weeks, paid off.

We won that quarter 17-9, leaving the score 29-20.

Due to the experience of Crossbow they came back at us in the third and fourth quarters, 14-14, 13-16, however, despite errors through court when the pressure was applied we still managed to net shots and turnover ball at crucial times to maintain our lead.

Final score 54-48
