Beacons 2nd vs Bromley Ladies
Bromley 38 – Beacons 27
On the 20th of September Beacons 2nd team took to the court against Bromley ladies. We started off playing strong in the first quarter with lots of interceptions as well as putting pressure on Bromley’s attack. Our attacking side was strong also, with Honour scoring most of the goals.
However in the second quarter we let our guard drop in defence slightly and this allowed the opposing team to concede 15 goals with our team only conceding 5 goals. By the third quarter, we made some changes in positions with Bella Perry and me coming off from GS and WD respectively and Victoria Newman going on as WD, Martha at C and Kat at GA.
It took a little while for our team to settle down again after the substitutions as we struggled with spacing on court as well as driving on to the ball, though we did manage to claw it back to 27-38 to Bromley with an 11 point goal difference. In the final quarter I came back on at WD.
We gave it our all, getting plenty of interceptions and rebounds. Throughout the match the defence between Mali and Demaris was very strong. They were on fire! Overall we all thoroughly enjoyed the match and worked hard. Looking back, we have plenty of things we need to work on in training to help us improve our game for the next time we play Bromley!
