Although Hucclecote's defence trio of Rosie Barrett, Claire Richards and Michaela Iffil turned ball after ball , it was Hucclecote's attacking end and shooting inconsistencies that led to Bath taking victory in a very low scoring game.
From the outset, Bath had the edge and Hucclecote never found it easy feeding the shooting circle with Chantel Wopara at GK dominating and taking some stunning interceptions. Whilst 6-3 down at the first interval, Hucclecote's re-arranged line-up with Iffil moving to Centre changing places with Liz Brassington who played strongly at WD, Hucclecote did lift their game to make it 12 each at half time.
With Iffil only able to play half a game due to injury, the 3/4 period saw Hucclecote struggle in attack and whilst Carly Taylor had moments of good play, it was not enough as Bath began to take the edge ahead 21-16.
The final 15 saw Liz Ashmead on at GD and Claire Richards move to WD and once again the defensive trio were outstanding. High error rate through the attacking end and a day of poor shooting stats saw Bath edge out winners by 28-21 even though Hucclecote had 45 attempts at goal against 31 for Bath. This was a disappointing loss which had consistency been higher, Hucclecote should have won.
