Lightning made really hard work of their game with Rednock, only edging into the lead in the final 15 minutes!
Honours were even after the first quarter at 9 all, with both sets of shooters converting accurately. During the 2nd period, errors crept into Lightnings game which Rednock seized upon, establishing a 2 goal lead at half time.
During the 2nd half, Lightning dug deep to edge ahead, but Rednock refused to give in, contesting every pass & loose ball.
Better feeds & consistent shooting ( 14/14 in the 3rd quarter & 12/15 in the 4th ) contributed to this, along with lower error rate through court.
Squad; Maisie Simmonds, Wendy Burgess, Kat Honeywill, Jennie Bore, Katie Pickles, Alex Mathews, Katie Lyons & Millie Mather.
