Spears battled hard against Yeovil’s Reckleford to achieve an important win. The team started the first quarter strong knowing they had a tough game ahead of them, but with accurate passing down the court from Millie and Ruby along with turnovers being forced the quarter ended 8-6 to Spears.
Into the second quarter, both teams were still struggling to gain a definite lead with some points of the quarter being goal for goal. However, with some important interceptions from Harriet and great teamwork between Amy and Kelly in the defence circle to gain rebounds the second quarter ended 15-12 to Spears.
After a motivating team talk, Spears were fired up to get into the third quarter. Keen to now extend their lead, Meg made some fantastic movements to dominate the circle and on the rare rebound, Zoe was always there to take that second shot. Passes were still accurate and the defence was applying more and more pressure forcing mistakes which lead to the third quarter ending 23-16 to Spears.
The final quarter was underway, the atmosphere within the team was very positive and the defence team were on fire, intercepting difficult balls and the whole team were battling for the win and to prevent Reckleford getting within five goals. The hard work paid off and the final score was 29-24 to Spears. Player of the match was Amy and we would like to thank Rebecca for reserving.
