Paulton travelled away to Bridgwater to play another tough match against Neptune. Having beaten them at home at the start of the season, Paulton still knew they had to play well and commit themselves to the game. The first quarter started a little unsteady but Josie, Vic and Deb in defence were working at 100% to try and stop Neptune getting the goals. The first quarter battle ended 11-7 to Neptune.
With Hayley coming at C, and Ness staying at WA Paulton had to dig in and try to close the gap in the second quarter. With excellent court play and linking of the defence into the attack, Cheryl and Vina were able to score some excellent goals, but Paulton were still trailing resulting in a half time score of 23-15 to Neptune.
This was unfamiliar territory for Paulton so with a few more squad changes, Paulton were determined to get the game back. The third quarter started well but with a few umpiring decisions not going our way, saw Neptune still in the lead with a score of 31-26.
The fourth quarter saw all team members playing first class netball but unluckily it was not Paulton’s day. Final score 41-35 to Neptune. Thanks to all supporters for coming along and helping to keep us going!!
