With the sun shining Paulton Vipers travelled to Bridgwater to take on bottom of the table Mercury. Confident that their wining ways would continue Vipers were going for goal difference to improve their league table position.
The game started well good movement in the centre court by super sub Jade at C, proving a dynamic player leaving her opposite number for dust, moving the ball well up the court to the awaiting shooting pair. The quarter ended with Vipers in the lead 4-9.
With no changes to positions Vipers continued to work hard in centre court with Andrea and Deb working well together passing the ball into space and backing up the attacking shooters. Vipers continued to push ahead despite mercury gaining some late momentum 14-20.
The third quarter was much the same with some great defending by the defensive pairing of Becky and Kim, who communicated well to keep out the Mercury star shooter. The ball was quickly turned over and sent flying up court with some fantastic mid court play, the quarter ended 20-30.
The final quarter saw vipers come out all guns blazing with the defence working hard, intercepting the ball and backing up the attack fantastically. Helen and Ness proved a formidable shooting pair, running rings around the young mercury defence. At the final whistle vipers were victorious once again 24-41. Thanks to Zoe for reserving and Darb and Vina for being our support team!
