Snow stopping Vandals this week!
A commanding performance from Weybridge see them take the victory!
A frantic morning of WhatsApping and weather watching as the mini beast from the east swept across Surrey, meant Vandals were on kept on their toes from the moment they woke up. The weather gods took some mild pity on us and let us take the court in freezing, but at least not snowy conditions.
After last weeks beating, we came together as one for captain Kate to work us through our warm up paces. It worked, as we stepped on court focused and determined to prove to ourselves, as much as anyone, that we are better than last week.
Defensively we performed brilliantly, holding the Guildford defence out of the circle, forcing them to shoot at distance, and forcing error after error.
In attack we played thoughtfully and patiently. We used the reset to open the court, and supported each other as we played round and waited for the right feed.
It was hard work, and had to constantly concentrate to ensure we didn’t get lacklustre. We had to focus on driving onto the ball and playing proactively rather than waiting for the ball to come to us.
A brilliant performance, not just because of the score line, but in the way we picked ourselves up as a unit, and changed the way we played, even when faced with opportunity to get lazy.
Oppos player went to Lucy, and players player went to Grace.
Well done everyone xxx
