Lightning made hard work of their 11 goal win over newly promoted Bishops Cleeve Fillies. The shooting circle of Lauren Brice & Lily Simmonds took time to settle, but by the 2nd half they were playing with more confidence, scoring 12 goals in the last quarter.
At times the ball through court moved fluently, with excellent timing & speed, while at others un forced errors & poor passing, allowed Fillies into the game.
Hannah Faulkner & Eleri Sewell in the circle defence put enormous pressure on the Fillies shooters, rebounding & intercepting feeds.
It was during the final quarter that Hucclecote began to dominate to pull away to win by an 11 goal margin.
Squad: Lauren Brice, Lily Simmonds, Sam Hogg, Fran Preedy, Lauren Brooks, Lucy Smith, Hannah Faulkner & Eleri Sewell.
Shooting stats: Brice 21/34 & Simmonds 11/24
Player of the Match: Eleri Sewell
