Paulton knew that this match would be a tough one having lost when they visited Mars earlier in the season, but they were looking forward to the challenge!
A nail bite ting 1st quarter saw a score line that was pretty much goal for goal, quick turn arounds in centre court by Liz and Laura ment that Paulton held a very narrow lead of 7-5.
A quick change saw Charlotte come on at GD, this addition of pace threw Mars. Char and Becky worked well in defence getting many interceptions and trying out a new stretch technique!! Paulton were still in the lead at half time 17-14
With the heat getting to many the 3rd quarter was a tough one, Jade played her usual outstanding game creating space and making herself available for passes. The heat was too much for Paulton and they let their lead slip by one goal. 22-23.
Katrina came on to take the GD bib from Kim and having subs proved in valuable, Paulton began to fight again. Helen and Kristie swapped shooting positions and this proved a great decision as neither missed and Paulton kept pushing the ball forward, defending fantastically therefore forcing Mars to make mistakes which Paulton seized on. Paulton finished the game with a fantastic win 36-25.
Thank you to all who came to cheer us on!!
