Lightening started this match well, establishing a 9 goal lead by half time, 20 goals to 11. This was in part to the consistent shooting of Pollyanna Banyard & Wendy Burgess, both converting 10 each of their 13 attempts.
Toni lowery & Lucy Werrell at the back turned a number of balls being fed into the circle, restricting Challengers to only 6 attempts in the 2nd quarter. It was only an unusually high error rate by Hucclecote's mid court players, that denied them a bigger lead at half time.
Challengers enjoyed a little more possession in the 3rd quater which allowed them to close the deficit to 6 goals, but the result never really looked in doubt & Lightening consolidated their lead to win 36-29.
