U14 Firebirds V Cirencester
This was the second U14 Gloucestershire league game for Firebirds and we had a squad of 9 which was good as we had a lot of unavailability. The team started strong converting most of the many turnovers made throughout court and finished the quarter 8-1 up.
Within the second quarter, the team continued to make turnovers throughout court putting Cirencester under pressure and our shooters shot brilliantly with this quarter ending 20-2.
The second half of the game was a more tightly fought half, we made the turnovers however we also made errors such as poor passes and foot work which meant less attempts at goal, the third quarter ended 24-5 and the final score of the match was 26-7.
Although this was a game of 2 halves, this was a good result for firebirds as the players within this team had not played together before and so the girls had to adapt to different line ups and units. 5 of the 9 players were all shooters so thesepayers played out of their first choice positions at times and performed well in those positions.
Team: Ilana, Francesca, Bethany, Annabelle, Bethan, Zoe, Evie, Molly and Tilly
Player of the Match: Ilana (scored 17/18 shots = 94%)
