For much of the first half Hucclecote were trailing in this closely contested match, mainly through unforced errors from Hucclecote & the shooting accuracy of the Bath GA. Down 6 - 12 after the first 15 mins, Hucclecote began to settle and claw back the deficit. Kirsty Trueman had a stong game at Centre & with Charlotte Jhonson & Lizzie Bryant putting more pressure on the Bath GA, Hucclecote closed the gap to 3 goals.
It was during the 3rd quarter that Hucclecote began to take control & force Bath into making errors & miss shots. Capt Liz Ashmead & Jhonson in the Bath circle made numerous tips & winning rebounds. At the other end, Hucclecotes attack, Harriet Pratten & Tammy Powell began to find shooters Alice Marler & Rhianna Hallbrook with more ease. Once again 15yr old Hallbrook impressed with her shooting accuracy once she got into her stride! Hucclecote won the quarter 15 goals to 8. Bath came back strongly in the final quarter, containing the score to 10-8 in Hucclecotes favour, but the 3rd quarter lead gave Hucclecote the buffer they needed to hang on to a very well deserved victory.
This result leaves them unbeaten with only one more team to meet next week in the first half of the season.
