Hucclecote entered 3 teams into the pre-season friendly tournament;
Tigers and Wallabies were in one section and Leopards were in the other. This was the first time that as a coach I had the opportunity to see the girls perform in squads as they had never played together before. There was some outstanding play throughout the day by all three teams and this is looking good for the future of the club.
Tigers won all their group games which saw them go to the semi-final where they met Leopards who had only lost one game in their section. This was a closely contested game especially in the first half, however Tigers pulled away in the second half winning the game 7-3 where they then met Challengers Sparklers in the final. The first half of the final saw Tigers trailing 5-3 however in the second half they pulled it back and went on to win 10-5.
The Wallabies team although they lost a few games, they didn’t give up and as the day progressed they clicked as a team and went onto to win against Cirencester 2-1 and only narrowly lost to Challengers Sparklers who reached the final 5-3.
Thanks to our Premier players Thea and Shona who gave up their time to help assist with the teams on Sunday.
