Congratulations to R1 Stars taking a win with a depleted squad, helped by outstanding shooting from Katie P and Emily L. 1st quarter we got off to a slow start and were 4-0 down but we managed to battle through and pull the score line to 9-9 at the end of q1 with a number of tips from Mitzi, Katie and Millie and Izzy. The opposition set up a zone which disrupted us initially and then we managed to open the space so players could drive though. The second quarter saw a more settled start with Stars going on two runs of 3 goals, however a time from the opposition disrupted our flow and Whitchurch came back into the game. We won the second quarter 12-11, score line now 21-20. Some excellent passages in the attacking end were displayed within this 15 minutes.
The third quarter Stars had an electric start, a run of 3, closely followed by a run of 5, which gave us the confidence that this game should be ours. However credit to Whitchurch who started to score goal to goal in the final few minutes taking the score to 37-27 to Stars.
The final quarter was a battle with a lot of unforced errors from both squads and some warnings from the umpire, however Stars managed to secure another win 13-12 and finish the game 50-39.
Some outstanding moments of netball within this game, relentless defending and exceptional shooting. Well done!
