A winning night for the Omega 3rd team squad. A great night of play from the team, dominating the match play from the initial whistle. They maintained ownership of the ball and won many an interception throughout the game, ensuring they had possession majority of the match. Their opposition could not contain them.
With a lead of 15 – 3 in the 1st quarter. A team chat from their captain, Nikki Hewitt, to maintain composure and not become complacent and the team take the court ready to end the season on a winning streak.
Some superb inter-passing, coupled with many a ‘dummy pass’ between the shooters, Emma Kousoulou and Chloe D’Arcy, followed up with consistent goal conversion allowed the team to sustain and increase their lead throughout the remainder of the game. The strong defensive play by Jenny Hutchings and Beth Foster, putting off their opponents and winning rebounds and tips within the circle and great court play by Hannah Troianno, Kayleigh Burke and Nikki Hewitt bringing the ball down the mid court, finding their shooters with accurate feeds, all contributed to the final score of 49 – 11 to the winning Omega squad.
Tonight’s game was their final game in the Turnford Summer League, culminating in the overall winning of the division. This was not only achieved tonight, but throughout the season, with great team play from additional squad members, Abby English and Martha Rodman in previous games. A great achievement, with fantastic team effort and camaraderie in all games. Well done team for a well deserved win, gaining promotion for next season!
