Today’s captain was Anna who got the team off to a great start by winning the first centre pass. The girls started quickly and moved the ball nicely down the court and into the shooters. Rachel scored the first goal of the game! BHHS responded with a quick centre pass and also moved the ball nicely down to their shooters; with a great goal from the GA the score was 1-1. At points during the first quarter the game became a little muddled and crowded with lots of interceptions being made from both teams. The score at the end was 2-1 to Copthorne with Bethany scoring the goal to put us in the lead.
During the second quarter the girls picked up their game. Talia and Anna were offering a back and side option as well as Rachel and Bella dodging forward for the ball. This created more space and allowed Tianna to move the play. Further goals were scored by both Rachel and Bethany who were working brilliantly in the circle together. The score at half time was now 4-2 to Copthorne. The second half saw great play from both teams and all girls were hungry for the ball. Talia was a star in defence and Tianna worked her socks off to take back possession where she could. Priya, Anna and Ruby were working as a unit in defence while Bella, Rachel and Bethany were timing their dodges and working hard to get the ball into the circle. After a tremendous team effort the final score was 9-2 to Copthorne.
This really was a fantastic game with quick play from both teams. It was the best I have seen the girls play. What a great way to end the term! Well done – Ruby, Talia, Priya, Anna, Tianna, Bella, Rachel and Bethany.
