As the scoreline indicates, Lightning were in total control of this match from the outset.
Georgia Schule, newly promoted from Hucclecote Thunder, had an outstanding game at GS, converting 52 from 60 attempts. She was equally supported by Fran Preedy at GA, who used her speed & flair, linking well with Schule.
Mid court Lucy Smith & Sam Hogg, dominated their opponents, feeding Schule & Preedy with ease.
Hannah Burak, in only her 2nd game for the club, had a good game at WD, making a number of tips & interceptions, and bringing the ball through court well.
As usual the defence partnership of Jo Hutchings & Eleri Sewell demonstrated their athleticism & ability to "pick off" feeds as they denied Cleeves shooters of many opportunities to score. This was echoed by Cleeve who nominated Eleri as Player of the Match.
To Cleeve's credit, they never gave up chasing the game, but were totally outplayed in all areas of the court.
Hucclecote Lightning - Georgia Schule, Fran Preedy, Sam Hogg, Lucy Smith, Hannah Burak, Eleri Sewell ( capt) Jo Hutchings.
