Wessex blades had their second match of the season on Tuesday against Corsham. Blades team was very heavily defensive so looked to some familiar Sabres players to step up and they performed fabulously. Play started well for both teams with the ball flowing quickly from one end to the other, sadly Corshams precision in the attacking circle saw them take the early lead going into the second quarter. As blades become more familiar with each other's positioning there were many effortless passages of play. GD and WD offered excellent support which forced Corsham into defensive play. The goal line and half time had narrowed. Blades continued to pressure Corsham and Danni and Jo were able to convert some well earned goals. Emily in centre worked tirelessly making many vital interceptions. Corshams tall defense made it difficult to always feed the circle and they were quick to punish any errors. The final quarter saw Hetty move into GA for blades and create some space in the attacking third. Corsham continued to match any goals scored, securing them the win of 31-8. Well done to all the Blades team for remaining positive and on another superb match.
Congratulations to Vicky Gregory, player of the match.
