- Week 3 round up,
19 wins from 21!!! 19 wins from 21!!!What a weekend- Hucclecote teams competed in 21 matches, winning 19 with the only 2 losses when they played each other! One of those was the Local prem div clash between Hurricanes & Lightning. It was a really competitive match which Hurricanes only began to dominate in the 2nd half. The height advantage of Eve Wright in the shooting circle played a big part in Hurricanes win, though the defence of Abi Tucker & Grace Cappell worked tirelessly to interrupt the flow of ball. Hurricanes ran out winners 54-31 by the final whistle. Storm in Div2 had a really good win over a strong experienced Challengers team. The defence duo of Hannah Howl & Ellie Gabriel were outstanding keeping Storm in the game. The final score of 44-38 reflects how close the match was. In their first Regional 2 game of the season, Comets under new coach Kate Mears, won a hard fought physical encounter over Mavericks 49-41. This was virtually a completely new squad & apart from Capt ELAINE Creater, the average age on court was about 17!Regional Stars in Div 1 on Sunday had a convincing win over Almonsbury 57-35. Once again this is an almost totally new squad, who like Comets, demonstrate great potential going forward. Also on Sunday the 3 U16 squads had an awesome day competing in the county seeding tournament. Dragons were unbeaten all day, Panthers winning all their Games bar the one against Dragons & Pumas, finishing 3rd to secure a place in Div 1 of the Glos U16 league. Both Dragons & Panthers go forward to the regional seeding tournament in 2 weeks time. All in all an incredible weekend of netball from all Hucclecote teams.
