Dolphins v Vipers 27/09/14

Dolphins struggled to intercept the quick and direct balls that were swiftly sent into the awaiting Vipers shooters. The quarter ended with Paulton easily ahead 9-16.

The second quarter saw the Vipers debut of Kristie on at GK, linking well with Kim (GD) and Andrea (WD) shutting down the Dolphins attack. Dolphins were rattled and Vipers capitalised on this making multiple interceptions that were quickly converted, ending the first half 22-32.

The third quarter once again saw rotations in defence with Becky back on court dominating the defensive circle ensuring that Dolphins had their poorest quarter scoring only 7 goals. Dolphins put the pressure on Helen and Ness in the Vipers shooting circle, however the ladies remained unfazed scoring a fantastic 27 goals in this one quarter closing it out 29-43.

The final quarter saw another defensive rotation that once again shut down Dolphins and ensured Vipers came home undefeated. The score at the final whistle was 42-55.
