but we will bounce back!


Saturday we faced Pleiades at home. We normally have no trouble winning this match and today should have been the same.

However, after a flat training session with a last minute arrangement, we came into this game complacent and made error after error.

We drew the first quarter 9-9 but for some reason, we weren't gelling well and it felt like we were losing. We then went on to go down by 5 in the second quarter.

However, with a raise in volume from our home fans and determination that we can do this - we pulled it straight back in the third quarter neck and neck in 5 consecutive turnovers/ goals which was great to see the tenacity of the team and the fight we have to do this but then when we were about to pull ahead, the umpiring calls were going against us.

t was a mixture of our errors and inconsistent umpiring that did not help the case and its disappointing to see that happening at this level when everyone wants a fair playing field.

We got the 2 crucial points to keep us top of the table but its a lesson learnt and we must fight harder, play safer possession netball and carry on as we were before this blip occurred.

Its a very long season and we are only 4 games in, we must NOT get complacent . we must train harder and work hard for it! Lesson learnt and we have a few weeks off now to re gather our thoughts and go into the next game with control and discipline.

We got this ladies! We do need to earn it though :)
