Hucclecote v Pinehurst

Win 40-33

Hucclecote continue their undefeated run with a closely fought match against
Pinehurst.

Pinehurst’s experience play and aggression for the ball saw them come out
strongly for the first half. Hucclecote were always on their tail but
couldn’t get settled and threw several intercepted balls away through basic
errors.

At half time Hucclecote were losing 17 – 18.

Half time saw Sarah Amey take court at C, she brought with her the much
needed stability in midcourt playing a controlled game with accurate passing
and support through the whole of the court. Towards the end of the third
quarter the rest of the team finally seemed a little more comfortable and
Hucclecote finally took a slight lead 27 – 26.

The final quarter saw a positive Nicky Guest come back on at GA and
Pollyanna Banyard playing a supportive WA, the attack suddenly grew in
confidence and started to take the game away from Pinehurst.

Hucclecote’s fitness and ability to interchange players without any upset to
the rhythm of play saw them come away with an excellent 40 – 33 win.
