Match Report - Team Thunder 11.11.2018
Thunder travelled to Bodmin, but unfortunately couldn't bring home the victory. Bodmin were quick off the mark and took a 5 goal lead with great positioning and accuracy by their GS. Thunder came back though to level it, but just before the end of the quarter a few errors crept in to enable Bodmin to regain a 5 goal lead. Cara Copsey joined Ruth Chamings in the defence for the 2nd quarter and they worked superbly together breaking down Bodmin's play and winning rebounds. Bodmin couldn't find the net as easily in Q2 and more movement in the attack meant Thunder narrowed the gap slightly to be 17-21 down at half time. At the start of the 3rd quarter Louise Lathwell thought it would be sensible to land on both defenders feet when going for her rebound and badly turned her ankle (so the team had to regroup). Initially they worked hard, and many one-twos between Ruth & Kat, and then usual drive to the pocket by Nicole Lathwell took the ball down the court, and the shooting accuracy decreased and Bodmin capitalised to pull away to 35-24 at the break. In the final quarter Katrina Venner couldn't find the net (about2/7) and heads started to drop. Everyone still worked hard and the movement was there, although timing was off at times. Lucy Burnett and Rowan Fitzsimmons kept working hard to break down their play & Lorraine Cleverdon Brend and Katrina worked intelligently to get into good shooting positions. Their shooters barely missed in the second half and punished Thunder to win 50-30. They were a good side but it was definitely a game Thunder could win. Bring on the return visit! Bodmin game Player to Katrina Venner for playing four different positions. Thunder voted for Cara Copsey.
Team Line Up: Cara Copsey, Ruth Chamings, Rowan Fitzsimmons, Lucy Burnett, Nicole Lathwell, Lorraine Cleverdon Brend, Louise Lathwell & Katrina Venner.
