BREAKING NEWS - Titans back on the court - 29th March 2021
Match Report - Team Lightning 04.11.2018
Titans Lightning knew the match was going to be tough when they travelled to Exeter. The game started at speed, with Exeter passing quickly and rapidly up the court. Their set play was evident and they maximised on the errors made by Lightning, bringing the score line at the end of the first quarter to 22-9 to Exeter. The scoreline didn't phase Lightning and they made changes to the team in the 2nd quarter. Emily Ridson at GS (Player of the Match) fought tirelessly to get into position and maximised on the few opportunities given, but these were sparse. Exeter GS & GA's shooting were accurate and the team maximised on the errors that Lightning made. The score at the end of the 2nd quarter was 38-18 to Exeter. Beth Nancekivell lived into GA and Grace Wilton to WA for the 3rd quarter, and the team made a number of extra passes to keep possession. Strong defence with Jo Nancekivell at WD, Poppy Sampson at GD and Kiara Clarke at GK meant Exeter attack were pressurised, but their speed of play was immense and they continued to increase their lead, finishing the 3rd quarter at 51-27. Determined to remain within half of the score line, Lightning continued to fight in the last quarter. Clare Wilmott at Centre managed to keep the pace of the centre court, but play was scrappy. Errors were made by both teams. Lightning managed to remain within half, and the match final score was 61-32 to Exeter.
Player of the Match went to Emily Risdon for her superb shooting.
Team Line Up: Kiara Clarke, Poppy Sampson, Jo Nancekivell, Beth Nancekivell, Clare Wilmott, Grace Wilton, Emily Risdon & Lorraine Cleverdon Brend.
