Riverside lose to Storm but demonstrate some great match play
The starting line-up against Newcastle Storm saw Kate Jones stepping up to play out of position in the shooting circle. Even though this isn’t Kate’s usual position, Katy and Kerry worked together well in the circle and 5 goals were scored in the first quarter. There was a strong performance from Tori and Hannah driving the ball forward and the defence worked hard to end the quarter with Storm only 2 goals ahead.
In the second quarter Kate moved back to centre court working with Hannah to move the ball up the court nicely. Kerry and Susie moved well together in the shooting circle showing great communication while Jess and Emily worked hard in the defending circle achieving lots of tips. Heidi and Tori were substituted onto the court and kept up the strong centre court play with some great interceptions and teamwork. Whilst the goal difference increased to Storm the whole team continued play well together.
The final score was 41-27 to Storm and although we didn’t win the communication and teamwork was fantastic against a strong team. Well done everyone, some great improvements this week.
