A windy & grey morning set the scene for today's match between Cherries & CoJags.
Earlier in the season, we had lost to CoJags by just one goal, with the final result 43-44 - so today, we were out to change that outcome!
Cherries went all out from the very start of the game, despite 3 players not feeling very well at all.
End of the first quarter saw Cherries in the lead by 8-6. Some great defensive pressure from Zoe as GK, meant CoJags found it difficult to feed into their GS.
Quarter two saw some great interceptions by Jeeps & Zoe, which contributed towards us extending our lead - with a half time score of 18-11. The defence worked hard to stay tight with their players, to keep pressure on at all times.
The third quarter saw CoJags pick up their game, and their GS was on good form - it was a level score of 11-11, making the three quarter time score 29-22 to Cherries.
Last quarter, and Cherries knew they had to keep up the same pace and tempo that they'd played at all game, any slacking off and CoJags would have quickly narrowed the gap. Cherries won the last quarter (just!) 12-11, leaving us with a final winning score of 41-33.
Cherries were overjoyed to say the least (especially Jeeps!). Lovely to see some more Cherries 2 players on the sidelines supporting their club!
This result means we are unbeaten so far in 2014, with three matches to go this season - could it be an unbeaten run for Cherries 1? Watch this space....
