Omega turn up for the fixture with bare 7 players and our usual WD, Molly Brett, having to fill the centre position. The team for the game being:-
GK & Captain – Louise Cousins; GD – Andrea Kinninmonth; WD – Claire Statham; C – Molly Brett; WA – Leanne Mansfield; GA – Emma Faulkner and GS – Hannah Brown.
The opposition are a very young team, who are determined to give Omega a good game. The Omega team work hard to establish player positioning and linkages during the first quarter and the hard work pays off and we end the first quarter taking an early lead of 21-8.
Our team talk is very positive and the team return to court, keen to attain our first Division 2 win of the season, having been unlucky in the previous games. We continue the game, taking advantage of errors made by the young team, who never give up on their quest, even when their GA picks up an injury half way through the game.
We started to look tired by the 3rd quarter, but managed to dig deep for energy and drive to keep us going to the end of the game, whilst continuing to grow the score at the same rate. Omega take the ball to goal with control and confidence, having won the ball over on many occasion down the court, allowing the shooters to convert over 21 goals in every quarter. A well played game by Omega, sees the game end with a massive score of 92-25.
The young Turnford players are also commended and congratulated for their attitude throughout the game, never giving up and giving it their all right to the end.
