Squad: T, SJW, Sophie, Lozza, Amy, Chief (C), Jen, Apples, Janelle & Suz
Q1 10-8 to Cobham
Super close quarter drawing virtually the whole 15 min until Cobs converted a turnover just before the whistle. Some nice movement around the D in attack, defence forcing errors but Cobs keeping up similar levels of pressure – it was going to be an interesting game…
Q2 27-18 to Cobham
Cobs came out raring to go in defence and managed to force a few errors and 3 second calls, their attack also ramped it up with the play-making GA finding her stride – we let it slip a little but were not beaten…
Q3 34-30 to Cobham
Nuns won the quarter by 5, boom back in the game! Great focus and patience in attack with great positioning in the D by Suz. Full court defence breaking apart Cobham’s attack. Soph marking the GA out of the game certainly helped!
Q4 43-39 to NUNS
Cobham started strong managing to maintain a 3/4 goal lead for the first half of the quarter – then we started to chip away at the lead and once momentum was with us we played immaculate netball. Zero errors and immense focus, extreme patience and accuracy in attack and particularly superb and key interceptions from Apples at WA and Lozza at WD. Lozza, Chief and Soph working relentlessly to keep their players out of the game then T positioning herself perfectly in a one on one with the GS to pluck the ball out of the air time and time again.
Player of the match Janelle – great movement and fast hands in the D, sinking shots in from everywhere. We laugh in the face of wind!
To sum up how we snatched victory in 3 words: focus, determination, fitness.
