We have had a great start to the season this year with many wins and great performances for every team! So let’s have a look at the season so far team by team.
First of all let’s look at the 1st team, in their first game of the season the first team put on a blinding show against a strong Raiders team. After a closely fought game with the score swinging back and forth, we unfortunately lost by only 3 goals! The final score was 37-34. The second game was, against Swanley 2 and the first team pulled off an outstanding performance to take a convincing win of 42-26! The third game of the season was going to be tough and the girls knew this, we were playing Harmony a team who know each other well and as we thought the game was tough and we were drawing throughout until the 3rd quarter. Unfortunately, we lost our way in the last quarter and ended up losing 31-24., however, this game was a valuable experience for the girls to play under pressure and they will definitely become better players for it! The next game saw us take to the court against Priory, we knew this would be a tough game from the start! First quarter over and we were down by 3 goals, and we struggled to break down the shooting combo of Priory, even though we had some lovely attacking play ourselves. We decided to make a few changes at halftime and a determined team took to the court for the last half of the game and this showed with some amazing interceptions and fantastic shooting accuracy. We went into the final quarter down by only 2 and we absolutely went for it, some amazing attacking and defensive play and the girls came together as a team to push on and taking the final win 49-44. So we are currently we are 4th in our division!
