U14 Firebirds V Stroud Lions

This was the first U14 Gloucestershire league game for Firebirds and we had a squad of 8 available. The team started strong making many turnovers within the first 5 minutes and converting these to goals which saw us take the lead very early on.

Throughout the court everyone put their defensive skills which they had been practising over the last few weeks into practice and it saw everyone within the team taking interceptions.

The shooting circle of Ilana and Francesca interlinked well and played as a unit converting many of the opportunities which we had. WA’s and C (Elsa, Bethany and Maddy) worked hard to get to circle edge and fed the shooters well. Centre passes proved successful and the first release passed worked down court. WD’s (Bethan and Elsa) back up through court well and helped to bring the ball down through the court to the attack. Circle Defenders (Macy, Daniella and Bethan), worked hard to put the oppositions shooters under pressure and took significant amounts of interceptions.

All 8 players performed to a high standard within this game,no matter who played what positioned the line-ups worked this secured a 46-4 win.
