Paulton Rovers Arrows traveled to Wells to take on Canons in the first game of the season. With the sun shining spirits and hopes were high that the young side could bring home a win.
Arrows took the court with a few nerves and not knowing what to expect having only come together as a team a few weeks ago. Great link ups in defense with Harriet and Ella turning over the play and leading the ball back up to the awaiting shooters Pip and Rebecca, who also worked well as a pair; using short and snappy passes to pop up the shots.
At half time Arrows were comfortably in the lead and the game was flowing well, the score was 8 – 24.
No changes were made coming back after the break with Shannon, Ellie and Cheryl working well passing up the court and feeding into the end third. Wells began to fight back, however, Arrows came back in the last quarter with heads still held high working hard as a team and calling for the ball in good spacing.
The match finished everyone with smiles on everyone’s faces a win for Arrows 18-38.
Player of the match Shannon and players player Rebecca. Thanks to Victoria for umpiring and to all who traveled to support the team.
