A fantastic final game for Storm saw them beat the 2nd placed team in Div 2, robbing them of promotion!
Cirencester took an early lead as Storm squandered possession, through poor passing & decision making, going into the half time break one goal down.
During the 2nd half, Storm really took advantage of the height of youngster Maisie Simmonds at GS, as Cirencester struggled to cut out the feeds. With Simmonds converting 100% in the 3rd quarter, netting 12/12, Storm edged ahead to lead by 7 at 3/4 time.
At the other end, circle defence Chrissie Jackson & Laura Wilks began to get the better of Cirencesters shooters, intercepting & rebounding a number of crucial balls.
Once in front, Storm never looked like relinquishing their lead & went on to win the game by 8 goals.
It was a great squad effort which moved Storm into 3rd in the table, missing out on runners up slot by only 1 point!
Squad; Maisie Simmonds, Stella Ben Hania, Emily David, Becky Mogg, Mia Aylett, Hannah Jones, Laura Wilks & Chrissie Jackson.
