On the back of an undefeated streak Paulton Vipers hosted Yeovil Henford this Saturday in a glorious March sunshine. As Hendford are second in the league Vipers were expecting an extremely tough game and the supporters were not disappointed.
The first quarter started with the score going to both ways with each centre pass, neither team could take the advantage. With Hayley back from injury Vipers held strong with steady passing and quick movement. They took the first quarter by the narrowest of margins 7-6.
The second quarter saw some fantastic defending by Becky and Kim. Who worked well together once again covering the circle well and preventing the Hendford attack from capitalising on any loose balls. Vipers remained ahead 18-16.
After a positive half time team talk Vipers took to the court with fresh vigor. Jade was on for Hayley linking well with Deb in the center of the court and making many valuable interceptions. Hendford however found some momentum in this quarter and for the first time in the game started to take the lead, ending the quarter 26-28.
The final quarter saw Vipers out fighting with Helen working well with Cheryl who was on for the injured Ness. Making very goal count the ladies repeatedly ran rings around the Hendford defence. Vipers romped home victorious with a fantastic score line of 42-37 keeping the Yeovil side from taking any points from the game. Player of the Match Helen Carpenter. Thanks to Victoria for umpiring and to all the supporters for being so loud.
