End to end match


Saturday we faced Lavender park away at their home ground in southfields. Looking at their previous results, we knew this would be a big match as they haven't yet lost.

We had a great session in the week working on sports psychology and felt mentally prepared for this match. We knew the aim of the game for us and the focuses we had agreed on.

Taking the court after a good warm up, it took us a while to capitalize on our centre passes, and Lavender park went 4-1 up within a few minutes. However, we showed composure to pull it back with great all round on court defence and calm attitude, to win the first quarter 9-7 which would show crucial as the match progressed.

Second quarter, we let them get the feed into the shooter a bit too easily whilst we did all we could to try to cut off the circle edge feed, we let them come back at us and win the second quarter 12-10.

Going into the 3rd quarter 19-19, our aim was to counteract that GS feed and just stay calm and play our own game. We had a cracking 3rd quarter achieving this and winning by 2 goals but it was still anyone's game.

Going into the last quarter, the aim was possession - keep hold of the ball and do a job. We had a few missed shots on goal but after a bit of a talking to, we managed to hold onto the ball and create enough turnover as a team to finish the job, winning the match 41-39. We kept mentally strong throughout the entire match.

Our unforced error rate as a result was extremely low and confidence of the team was high. Great team morale and support and an overall well deserved win against a tough oppo!

Well done girls
