Storm secured a victory with their first match in Div2. even though they were reduced to 6 players through an unfortunate injury to Hannah Jones.
Jones & U15 Fliss Phillips had been playing extremely well together in the circle defence, closing down Nomads shooters. Two more youngsters, Lauren Brooks & Holly Walker also making their debut at this level, put in good performances at C & WD.
Ella Gardner at WA made a number of interceptions & fed Hucclecotes shooters with precision.
The well tried combination of Stella Ben Hania & Wendy Burgess was too strong for Nomads defence to close down with Burgess netting 29 of the total shots scored.
Lily Simmomnds coming on at GA had the difficult job of trying to cover 2 positions WA & GA when the team were down to 6 after Jones' injury. She managed this, combining with Burgess well & converting her own shots. During this 2nd half, with Brooks moving back into defence, Hucclecote pulled away to comfortably take the match 45 -17.
