Hurricanes got off to a strong start, taking the quarter 10-6 through some consistent shooting by Rachel Palmer at GA. netting 9/11 attempts.
The defensive duo of Liz Ashmead & Hannah Leger were in sparkling form, turning the ball time & again, denying Chelts shooters many opportunities to score. Supported by Laura Mitchinson & Arnie Brown at WD, Chelts found it increasingly difficult to penetrate the goal third.
With Sarah Amey at C & Hayley Mortimer at WA, both working the circle edge well, Hucclecotes shooting circle began to open out, creating more availability to score. Chelts were only able to score 7 goals during the 2nd half, compared to Hucclecote's 19, further demonstrating the amount of turnovers made & errors forced.
The final result of 37 - 20, although low scoring does reflect Hucclecote's dominance throughout the court.
