Match Report - Team Thunder 17.3.19
Team Thunder faced top of the table Cornwall Saints for their last game of the season, and were determined to get a point, and improve on their previous score line earlier in the season. Starting 7 were Louise Lathwell GS, Lorraine Cleverdon Brend GA, Kitty Sampson WA, Lucy Burnett C, Claire Turner WD, Ruth Chamings GD & Daisy Harrison GK. Titans started well and were causing Saints problems from the off set. Ruth & Daisy were getting many tips and interceptions , and the first quarter finished 16-7 to Saints. In the 2nd quarter, Lucy went to WD and Kitty to C and Lauren Offield took to the court as WA. Lucy immediately applied pressure and was able to turn over 3 phases of play, and Kitty controlled the game well at centre. Lauren was working hard at WA, and at half time the score line was 29-20 to Saints. (We drew this quarter!). The 3rd quarter saw Claire come back on as WA and Ruth & Daisy switched roles. These changes didn't work and Claire called a tactical injury to enable Lauren back on , and Ruth & Daisy reverted to their original positions. With a few minutes left of this quarter, Lauren then made way for Nicole Lathwell to return to the court, from being absent for several weeks, recovering from an ankle injury. End of the third quarter, the score line was 46-26 in Saints favour. The last quarter and no changes were made, and Thunder were playing well. With a few minutes to go, Daisy switched into the GA role, due to Lorraine rolling her ankle, and this made an immediate impact on the game, with Daisy netting 2 out of 2 attempts at goal. The game finished 63-34 to Saints, but a big improvement on the previous encounter, and Titans got their point. Player of the match accolade went to Lucy Burnett.
