Week 8: LB Comets 29 – 27 LB Jaguars
Comets played yet again in the blinding winter sunshine where everyone looked the same in silhouette!!!
Comets started the first quarter really strong and took the lead over Jags 12-7, Excellent feeds into Barb and Nicky into shooting circle and great conversions.
The 2nd quarter saw Jags more settled and with a little more ‘fight’ and good conversions by their GA saw Comets come to the end of Q1 with only a 2 goal lead.
Change of positions to mix it up and confuse our opposition with Julia and Caryn swapping positions (C/WA) – Comets dug deep and with Julie and Shelly trying to intercept balls into a very tall GS – Comets managed to hold onto to the 2 goal lead – 25-23.
Final quarter and both teams came out fighting – attack were fearless against a very physical Jags defence kept their eye focussed on that net. Possession was the aim of the game and best timed interceptions by our Celia – it felt like the longest 15 mins EVER and on the final whistle Comets WON by 2! Final score was 29-27 and to be fair it was a real team effort today and everyone deserved POM but Nicky was the winner. Well played ladies – most excellent win.
