Lightening took to the court against Park this week in the premier division. I was a slow start for Lightening however with some great interceptions in the defence of Jo and Nikki Lightening started to play their own game and stole the lead in the first quarter. Lightening knew they were trying to force the ball too much so adapted their game to make sure this changed in the rest of the game and they did exactly that. Wendy and Maisie worked well on the shooting circle with Kat and Megan working hard and bringing the ball through court well. The defence trio of Nikki, Jo and Katie put the oppositions attach under lots or pressure and turned some great ball.
After quarter time Lily came on at C and make some sensible drives through court with great back up from her team mates. Defence continued to dominate the circle and took many tips and interceptions. The attack settled and some great movement was seen from the sideline, with all shooters netting their shots.
Hucclecote continued to dominate the second half, it didnít matter what line up was put on it just worked and Lightening deserved the 39-22 win.
Player of match was Katie Pickles.
Team: Maisie, Wendy, Kat, Meg, Katie, Jo, Nikki, Lily
