Omega 1 vs Comberton 8th Oct 2017

We went into this weekends game with a depleted squad and with our resident circle defence out injured and ill. However Andrea Kinnimonth and Hannah Sell stepped into their positions and what a performance it was.

Comberton had the first centre pass but with Lucy Andrews on tight defence she turned it over resulting in Omega taking the first goal and onto their centre pass. Omega’s centre pass was then turned over by Comberton and with the game going back and forth Omega ended the quarter with a 7 goal lead 16-9.

We went into the second quarter aiming to start strong, that we did. Superb shooting from Emma Maidment and Charlotte Jordan kept the score board ticking over. The mid court of Claire Daw, Lucy Andrews and Sophie Cockrill fed the shooters brilliantly and were on tight defence.  The defence kept Comberton’s tall GS at bay, not being able to cope with two hands over the feeder. Something Omega work hard on in their training. This quarter ended 34-26.

With an 8 goal lead Omega wanted to push on and extend their lead. The third quarter was our best quarter, with the attack shaking off their defence and the defence turning over several balls. The attacks movement made it easy for the feeders to feed some fantastic balls in, sometimes making it look easy. Omega extended their lead 52-34.

The final quarter saw the introduction to Megan Pryde at WD, making her first regional appearance after being out injured since July. We knew that the game wasn’t over and that Comberton would come out fighting. But again, the tired-less interceptions and spot on shooting there was no way back for Comberton. Final score was 69-46.

This completed our 100% record in a division that we have just been promoted into.  We are taking the regional divisions by storm after having back to back promotion. Every girl on court gave their all together and that was displayed in some fantastic Netball. Special mention to our home supporters who at times push us over the line. Next game is against Thoroughbreds away.
