Match Report - Team Lightning 06.01.2019
Team Lightning travelled with a squad of 8 players to the central venue of Bath University to play Taunton side Galmington for their first Regional fixture of the New Year. The players took to the court fired and ready, and play was steady to start. Unfortunately, too many errors were made on the court by Lightning, and Galmington maximised on these errors quickly to take the lead. The opposition's Goal Shooter was accurate time after time, and despite their best efforts, our defence were unable to slow down the score. Galmington took the initial lead. With the focus on the 2nd quarter on increasing the pressure in players and focussing on defence up the court, we started stronger initially, but again careless passing and too many obstruction calls, gave Galmington the advantage. It seemed Lightning were set to be chasing their tail in the 2nd half. A few team changes from both sides allowed players to try out different positions and further increase the pressure in defence, meaning Lightning were finally dominating the play. Slowly, the players managed to improve passing and begin to narrow the difference in score. Heading into the final quarter, Lightning were determined to pull the scoreline back, and finally we got the best from our players. Slick passing and firm communication was excited on court. Goal after goal was being scored, and the opposition's young defence were rattled. Unfortunately, Lightning were unable to claw back the goals Galmington took in the first quarter, and the final score was Galmington 52 - Titans Lightning 41. Team Line Up; Michelle Sampson, Clare Wilmott, Emily Risdon, Jo Nancekivell, Beth Nancekivell, Amber Manley, Emily Risdon & Grace Wilton.
