A tough match to end the season on!

Last match of the season, and like a repeat of last season - it was against Royston.

Last season, the result of our match (and others matches) would determine whether we finished in first or second place. This season, we knew first place had already gone to CoJags, so we were out to try for a second place finish. The result of todays game (again, along with others results) would see us finish in either second, third or fourth position.

The first quarter saw Royston get off to a very strong start, and by the end of the first quarter the score was 6-16 to Royston.

A great quarter time team talk, kept Cherries spirits up - and we really picked up our game, and won the quarter 11 goals to 6, so the half time score was 17-22 to Royston.

Third quarter was to be our comeback quarter, and with every Cherries player giving it their all, we managed to finish the quarter 31-31, due to a last second penalty shot which Ruth calmly took!

The fourth quarter was our best, we won it 12-5. If it weren't for all players digging deep for that last little push of energy that was needed, then we wouldn't have pulled into the lead.

Zoe as GK, and Lauren as GA had a special mention at the end of the match for their excellent on-court play.

So the final result was 43-36 to Cherries, giving us a second place finish!!
