Week 11: LB Comets 45 – 36 Dunstable Diamonds
On a beautiful, albeit nippy, Sunday morning, Comets rolled up to perform in their first match of 2018. With a squad of 9 and everyone in need of a run out, captain Julie put a comprehensive game plan in place.
First quarter was a shock to the system to say the least, but with cobwebs blown out we got into out stride. WA Julia and C Anita found the circle easily, complemented by a strong convertion to goals by Pat G. A win 13-11.
2nd quarter and a new combination bringing Barb on at WA and Julie at GD. Just a few adjustments were needed to settle and once again we were into our stride. The extra height in the circle helped to pick off some tips by Michele and Julie. With Michele taking a tumble. A draw 10-10.
3rd quarter and yet more changes. This time Barb to GA and Pip to WD. Another strong quarter throughout the court with exceptional text book play resulting in yet more goals. A draw 9-9.
Final quarter and all to play for at a score of 32-30. This time Barb at GS, Nicky at GA and Celia back in at WD. What can I say…we were hungry for the win and there was NO WAY we weren’t going to get it. Everyone fought hard and performed well to secure the result we deserved. This we did by winning the final quarter 13-8, with a final score of 45-36.
Well played everyone. It was a really enjoyable game with us all pulling together delivering over and above our roles. Player of match could have gone to anyone, but thanks to everyone making her look good with some peachy balls, Nicky was deemed this week’s winner!
