Saturday saw Paulton A take on Bishops of Wells in their first home match of the season.
In previous seasons this fixture has always been a close match so they knew they had to start well. The quarter started a little slow but as it progressed Paulton picked up the pace much to the surprise of Bishops. At the end of the first quarter, Paulton had taken the lead 14-8.
Going into the second quarter, a rotation change saw Ness come on at WD for Deb, Paulton really settled into the match and thanks to Josie and Victoria in defence, they got some great interceptions, allowing Cheryl and Davina to extend the lead to 26-13 with some great shooting.
Another rotational change saw Ness move to WA and Deb coming back on at WD. Paulton continued to force Bishops into making mistakes with some excellent court play from Shelley. Even though Deb and Shelley clashed with Deb continuing to play with a black eye!!! The quarter ended 40-21 to Paulton
Paulton went into the last quarter with another change this time in the circle with Ness moving to GS and Hayley coming back on at WA. Excellent passing from defence to attack saw Paulton really take control of the match. With the game ending 54-28
