Paulton took to the court in their brand new kit with a slightly altered side due to illness and injury. Despite these changes Paulton took very little time to calm down and with some good passing up the court from Jade and Darby Paulton took an early lead finishing the quarter 11-4.
For the second quarter Timsbury came back fighting determined to show the younger Paulton side what they were made of. However the new defence combination of Kim and Laura worked well and Timsbury struggled to get the ball in the net. Quick turn overs meant that Helen and Kristie were able to further Paulton’s lead, they finished the quarter 18-12.
A quick change saw Kelly Bailes coming on at GK after half time. Liz moved to WA and fed the shooters well. However Timsbury found their stride and some good shooting allowed them to pull level with Paulton, at the end of the third quarter there was a tense tied score of 26-26.
Paulton were struggling to get the ball into their shooters and despite some great team work Timsbury pushed further ahead. The score line did not reflect the effort put in by the whole of Paultons squad. The final score was 30-37.
Thanks to all our supporters.
