Hucclecote Hurricanes – Saturday 9th October
At training this match did not look as though it was going to go ahead after numerous injuries and people unavailable to play. So leaving training on Thursday night with a squad of 5 searching for players continued late into Friday night. However the morning began and a squad of 8 arrived at Bentham. Although many players who had been in a squad together there were a few who had not played together for a while or not at all. We welcomed Hannah Brewer into the Defensive circle to work along side Laura Mitchinson this duo worked very hard to intercept and tip numerous balls throughout. With the shooting combination of Charlotte Olley and Kate Nicholls back they were on fire all together netting 70% of their shots between them. The centre court also worked hard with a new combination almost every quarter with slick quick movements and linking through court and some excellent feeds into the circle. But the quarters got better and better soon leaving the opposition behind. With Charlotte going down with an ankle injury during the first few minutes of the last quarter Lucy Smith stepped into the shooting circle netting 6/6 goals proving her versatility. Final score being 65-26. Well done to all that played and it was good to see everyone working well no matter what combination was on court together.
