U14 Firebirds V Old Chelts
The Firebirds team played Old Chelts in the third league match. We ended up with a squad of 8 due to illnesses etc however the 8 had a good pre-match warm up and took to the court. Old Chelts were a very tall team and they started strongconverting most of their attempts at goal. Firebirds throughout the game continue to close the gap in the score line and it was a very evenly matched game. We took many turnovers throughout court which enabled us to have many opportunities at goal. The game ended 26-23 to Old Chelts however Firebirds played well and we managed to achieve that extra point as we only lost within 5. We will be looking to make this our victory on the return match.
Team: Ilana, Francesca, Annabelle, Bethan, Elsa, Maddy, Macy and Daniella (C)
