Hucclecote 49 – Jersey Jets 43
Hucclecote travelled to Jersey for Round 12 of Premier League 2. With a strong squad of 8 HNC were focused on securing the win. The first quarter went well for Hucclecote, a dominant start saw them go 4 up in with no response from Jets. Good unit work from Rosie Allison and Thea Thompson allowed the attacking combo of Sarah Adams and Shona O’Dwyer feed the shooters effectively – once it had been taken to circle edge. Q score 14-9
With Laura Turner taking to court in the second Q at WD, tight marking and great speed allowed increased pressure to be applied to Jersey’s attack. This created turnover opportunities for Flo Edwards at GD who is certainly making her mark in this position. Paired with Kellie Hull at GK both defenders turned ball keeping HNC ahead of Jets. Half Time 26-20.
The second half was highly contested and Jersey never let Hucclecote get too far ahead. Both teams battled it out but HNC kept the unforced errors down using patience in attack. Although Jets continued to battle always staying in contentionaccurate shooting from their GA Prem maintained composure and showed grit and determination until the final whistle.
