An intense start to the season saw Cojags narrowly take the win 45-43

After a whole season off CoJags where ready and raring to go! Having been promoted to Div 2 they knew it would be a tough match. It was also Anna’s old team so there was even more determination to win.

From the first whistle both teams came out fighting. Some excellent shooting from Anya (GS) and Ellie (GA) was matched with Hornet’s goal for goal. The new defensive duo Bryony (GK) and Mon (GD) clicked instantly and began hassling their shooters, picking up plenty of turnovers!
In the second quarter the defensive centre pass wall came into its own. Holding them high Maiya at WD was able to take intercept after intercept! A box zone on the third line made it hard for us to move fluidly into the final third but Mon and Maiya provided brilliant back up. The quarter ended 22-21 to Hornets.

Fresh legs and changes for the third. Georgie into GS, Anya to GK, Bryony to GD, Jen to WA, Anna to C and Mon to WD. Georgie held strong in the circle popping in the shots. Anna and Jen began to break down their zone, hitting the circle edge to provide support and some great feeds in to Ellie who was picking up intercepts in the centre third too. Finishing the third quarter the score stood at 36-31 to us and the win was in sight.
The final quarter…a VERY shaky start with Hornets pulling back and at one point taking the lead. Determined not to give up CoJags fought back, remaining calm (don’t think the same can be said for Daisy, Fleur and Jess!) in the final few minutes to claw back and win 45-43
A super intense first game giving us an insight into the rest of the season in Div 2.

Huge congrats to Georgie on her first regional match! And for CoJags debuts from Anna and Bryony!

It was also a sad goodbye to Ellie, who’s back off to uni. She went out with a bang getting POM. We can’t wait to have you back in Cojags colours.

Next up is Billericay!
POM: Ellie (GA)
