Omega arrive at ‘The Leys’, Cambridge, knowing that the 2nd half of the season is going to be tough and we’re ready for strong competition for the 1st game in the 2nd half of the season. Co-Jags did not disappoint in this and came at us hard. Down to bare 7 players, with one player having arrived home from Australia late the previous evening, Omega knew they’d have to dig deep for their final pre-Christmas game.
A great start in the 1st quarter, with Co-Jags defending hard and turning the game to their advantage on several occasions, however, Omega also won back many balls and with accurate, consistent shooting from both teams, Omega took an early lead of 16-13 to end the quarter.
Second quarter and Co-Jags come out determined, whereas Omega lost their rhythm. Co-Jags won the ball more than Omega and with continued high goal conversion, secured their needed goals, winning the quarter 11-9 and reducing Omega’s lead to 1 goal going into the 2nd half.
Omega needed a serious chat and were told to focus and play their game, which they did in the 3rd quarter, making that quarter a winning one for them. Maintaining ownership of the ball and winning the ball over 50% more than their opposition, Omega capitalised on their improved play, winning the quarter 17-11, increasing their lead once again, giving them a 7 goal advantage going into the final quarter.
The increased gap in the score proved too much for Co-Jags to pull back. Omega, down to bare 7 again fought hard to sustain their unbeaten status and showing great determination, particularly in the 2nd half, succeeded, winning the game 53-45. A great end to the pre-Christmas games, holding a comfortable 10 point lead at the top of the table!
