A home fixture saw Arrows take on Robins from Bruton last Saturday. Paulton Arrows took to the court with positivity and a determination to build on the positives gained from last week’s fixture. Arrows started well and fought for the ball with Gemma B and Ellie linking up well in the mid court at C and WA however Robins quickly pulled in front. The quarter ended with the travelling side ahead 2-12.
In the second quarter Ella was brought on at GD with Harriett moving to WD, the defence kept the pressure on Robins. Rebecca stayed strong and determined at GK. Accurate passing and team work allowed Pip and Kyla to score 4 goals. Unfortunately Robins continued to pull ahead ending the second quarter 6-20.
The third quarter saw further rotations for the Arrows side with Gemma B and Ellie switching in the centre court and Gemma K moving to WD. Although the gap in goals increased Arrows remained positive throughout. The third quarter ended 7-40 to Robins.
A final switch around saw the two Gemmas rotate. Ellie remained at C showing great skill at the position, with clean movement and strong passing. Arrows made some fantastic interceptions and stuck tight to their players. However, the score did not reflect the efforts of the team as Robins stayed ahead leaving the final score 7-53. Since playing Robins for their first game in September, Arrows showed great improvement and fantastic defensive skills meaning Robins were not able to gain the same amount of goals in this game as they did before.
Arrows would like to thank the umpires and supporters for giving up their time. The oppositions Player was Harriet and the Players’ Player was joint Ellie and Gemma K.
