Sharks Vs Paulton A

First Division team Paulton A travelled to Yeovil to take on a premier league side Sharks in a Cup plate match.

The first quarter, the underdogs Paulton A, came out with nothing to lose and matched the premier league team goal for goal displaying fantastic team work which took Sharks by surprise finishing the first quarter 10-6 in Paultons favour.

Second Quarter saw the Sharks sharpen their game realising that Paulton A were out to win. Defense was tight in both circles causing Paulton A to raise their game with accurate passing in to the circle from Hayley and Shelley, ending with faultless shooting from Davina and Cheryl they were able to hold on to their lead ending the quater 21-18 to Paulton

Going in to the second half Captain Hayley shuffled the squad and brought on Vanessa to carry on the excellent work within the shooting circle creating space needed to extend the lead, this saw the sharks retalliate with fearless attack which showed Paulton they had more work to do. Third quarter ended 33 – 29

The final quater was frustrating for the sharks as Paulton defense stepped up to the plate, Victoria and Josie rarely allowing the sharks the opportunity to score. The interceptions and fluidity of play from center court, coupled with the skill of the shooters, enabled Paulton to increase their lead final score Paulton A 49 – 37

To add to a fantastic win and great team effort Cheryl was capped Man of the Match, for her calm yet foccused performance which outshone the premier league players.
