Arrows v Aldon 27/02/2016

On Saturday Arrows took on Aldon at home. Arrows came out strong in the first quarter but unfortunately lost this quarter by one goal, 7-8. Pip (GA) received some lovely centre passes from Shannon (C) and Ellie (WA) coming out strong for the next pass to feed into Rebecca (GS) for some lovely shots.

The second quarter saw a change of position for Ella, going to WD and Bethany changing to GK. This meant Bethany took control of the defensive end and alongside Harriet caught some rebounds that as a team Arrows were able to turnover. This quarter also saw Pip and Rebecca swap positions with Rebecca moving to GA and Pip changing to GS. Pip made some nice space and was able to receive some good passes and then played herself in to score some lovely goals with Rebecca doing the same. Shannon (C) and Ellie (WA) were able to make lovely passes between themselves in the centre third and attacking end. The score going into half time was 21-14 to Aldon.

Arrows continued to battle during the third quarter making good interceptions and scoring some good goals.  Ellie (WA) was creating good space and received some good passes from Harriet (GD) and Shannon (C) and was then able to get them into our shooters to pop them up into the net. Although the defence managed to hold off a lot of possible goals from Aldon the score of the 3rd quarter was 30-23.

The final quarter saw Arrows play their best yet dominating scoring ten goals. This was due to the defence of Bethany (GK), Harriet (GD) and Ella (WD). Bethany was giving a tough game for their shooters by applying pressure to their shots. Ella (WD) tracked the WA to help put on the pressure, ensuring that the WA was unable to receive as many passes and give them into the shooters. Harriet played noticeably well, making some lovely interceptions which meant Arrows were able to make the turn over and score. Rebecca (GA) made good space and was able to receive some great passes and play herself straight into a position to shoot.
