A depleted Storm squad found it hard to take control of this game against a determined Park Ladies. Throughout the court Storm struggled to penetrate the tight marking by Park, even though mid court, Holly Walker, Laura Mitchinson, Lily Simmonds & Becky Mogg worked tirelessly to stay in contention.
With Wendy Burgess away, it fell to Kat Honeywill to join Stella Ben Hania in the shooting circle, & although both shot well when they had the opportunity, they were starved of many attempts by the physical Park defence.
Meanwhile at the other end, it seemed as if Park couldn't miss, even though Fliss Phillips & Chrissie Jackson never stopped hassleing their opponents.
THe result was disappointing in the margin of the loss, but Park played with more determination & consistency, thoroughly deserving the victory.
