Unlucky to lose


Saturday we faced Hillcrest at home. After being 1st and 2nd in the table, this was going to be a closely contested match with both teams really wanting the win.

The order of the day was composure and performance which i'm pleased to say - we actually did maintain throughout the match, despite not taking the win on this occasion.

We had a fantastic first quarter, showing composed passing and taking the ball to goal each time with accurate shooting to take a 14-7 goal lead, putting their shooters under pressure and taking the rebounds.
The second quarter was not so great,with a change in their attack that seemed to be more effective for them, and the unforced errors creeping in on our behalf, we went into the third only up 23-21. Still - i don't think we ever thought we would smash another 14-7 quarter against this team!!!

Third quarter was slightly better than the 2nd but still not enough to get us a lead. It was all to play for in the last quarter with both teams going end to end making quite a lot of unforced errors on both sides. This really could have gone either way.

Unfortunately, this didn't go our way and we lost by 3 goals even though Nic literally threw her body on the line for a rebound in the last quarter. (do you have no limits haha) I don't think anyone really deserved to lose the match as both teams played really well and its just a shame it had to be us since we really needed this one. Still - its another 2 points!

We know we have had a really unfortunate run, and this match was always going to be tight. We know where we've messed up but its a long season and it is not over , by FAR, yet! We just need to learn from this and take it into our next match.

Much improved on weds match against cobham, we are already showing that we can work with completely new combinations and still put out good performances as we are a talented bunch of players. The match focus was on performance - and we did that ladies, so hold your heads high. I'm proud of you all!!!
