Hucclecote Lightning made easy work of the 14 goal handicap that their opponents had over them, starting very positively & closing the deficit to within 2 at the end of the first period.

During the next quarter, Barnett Waddington were restricted to scoring only 4 goals by some great defencive play by Eleri Sewell & Jo Hutchings.

At the other end, Lydia Hallbrook was back on top form, netting 80% of her shots. By 3/4 time, Lightning had stretched their lead to 8 goals & although BW never gave up the chase, Lightning pulled away to a 14 goal win, 57 - 43.

This result sees Lightning through to the 2nd round of the Bateman cup, along with Hurricanes & Thunder.

Lets hope they all avoid each-other in the next round!
