After last weeks loss Paulton B were determined to win despite the cold weather courtside.
The game started after a short delay as Garnets had lost a few players in transit!! Paulton had a flying start with some brilliant interceptions and some fantastic passing in the centre court by Liz and Laura. The quarter ended with Paulton comfortably in the lead 12-1.
After some encouragement from the spectators Paulton’s defence decided to try a new set piece and this confused Garnets attackers allowing Katrina and Kim to turn the ball over and send it quickly back down the court. Jade worked hard at centre covering all the court with ease as she backed up both the defence and the attacking players. Paulton were still very much in the lead at the end of the second quarter 23-6.
Paulton returned to the court unchanged and full of confidence. However Garnets were not going down without a fight. They’re defensive players step up a gear and they made a few vital interceptions. Despite this Paulton’s defending players continued to keep the pressure on and they remained in the lead at the close of the quarter 34-14.
For the final quarter Paulton remained determined not to let their lead slip any further. With some absolutely outstanding shooting from Kristie Paulton kept pushing ahead. Team work from the two shooters Darby and Kristie meant the Garnets defence had little to no impact on the shooting pair who kept on finding the target. The match ended with a well deserved Paulton win 45-22.
