Paulton B remain undefeated!
Last Saturday morning Paulton’s B side took to the slightly chilly court to take on Canons for what promised to be an exciting match if previous meetings were anything to do by.
The game started well for the home side, with Andrea making valuable interceptions at GK preventing the Canons shooters from having an attempt on goal. The ball moved well up court with Jade and Liz working well in centre court to push the ball forward to the Paulton shooters. The quarter ended 12-4.
Canons came out fighting and found their stride quickly into the second quarter capitalising on some silly mistakes by Paulton to pull the score close. Paulton kept battling with Shelley making some flying interceptions that would prove pivotal in keeping Paultons spirit alive. Kristie and Darby worked hard to keep the goal count up by Canons won the quarter, the quarter ended a close 22-17.
After a team talk and some oranges Paulton came back on court with renewed vigour. Sophie made her debut for Paulton at WD marking her player hard and making some valuable interceptions. The court moved fluidly up to the waiting Helen and Darby who found the net repeatedly to keep Paulton in this game. Paulton remained ahead at the close of the quarter 32-21.
Another change around saw Darby move to WA with Kristie back on at GS, showing that the B team is truly versatile. Kim and Shelley worked well together to pressure the Canons attack, as a result valuable interceptions were made and the ball moved up the court to the awaiting attack who worked the ball well around the shooters circle and into the net. It was a great game to play and a well deserved victory for Paulton B. The game ended 39-26.
Player of the match = Shelley Bush
