Great final match for the team.
Thursday 12th May
Wessex Sabres end the season on a high. Beating Devizes 36-17.
At the start of the match Wessex were ready to fight hard in order to finish the season well. In the first quarter, Niki Foote and Molly Weston worked really hard in the defensive circle to put pressure on devises goal scorers. The first quarter was a tight score with Devizes scoring 6 and Wessex 9. The second quarter, Devizes came back fighting; scoring 5 more goals while Wessex only scored 3. Nicole Ledbury and Koel Jelfs at this point were both working extremely well and made some great interceptions when they could. At half time Wessex decided to utilise the subs and mix positions around. During the 3rd and 4th quarter Wessex were on fire, Bryony Haine made some great passes through center court whilst Jo Chalmers and Antonia Painter were getting some fantastic goals in! Phemie Dillon and Gaby Illston-Baggs came on fighting making some top interceptions and putting a lot of pressure on Devizes. Summer Mallon played out of position in the final quarter and made it look easy, using her height to receive good passes and holding ground perfectly! Wessex worked very hard and the score definitely reflected this. Well deserved girls!
Player of the match went to Bryony Haine.
Special thanks to Summer Mallon for being a great captain through the season and Jo Chalmers Wessex chair, for all of the efforts that you've made for the club as a whole this year and for being a great sport in the Sabres team.
