Not Our Best Performance

But a win's a win

Hillcrest A team took on Cobham last weekend for the first Surrey game after Christmas. Currently at the top of the league table we knew we had to go out strong. Starting 7 was Millie Oughton, Lily Rogers, Lauren Brown, Emily Nicholls, Rebecca Crisfield, Harriet Field and Emily Barber. A familiar attacking combination, but relatively new defensive combination saw Lauren Brown at WD after her spectacular performance against Omega.

The first quarter was not our finest quarter and unfortunately full of errors. Defence struggled to get the ball out of the defensive third on back lines and when it did errors were made with passing, stretching players to catch off balance. Attack struggled with clear drives in the shooting end and a few shots missed, despite our errors there were some fantastic play allowing us to take the quarter with a 3 goal lead.

Second quarter changes saw Laura Cross came on at WD, moving Lauren Brown to GD and Lily Rogers off. Within the first few balls an interception was made and our heads back on. Movement in attack saw more definitive drives and triangle positions were used more to work the ball into the shooters. Defence had thought about their positioning over the quarter break and the changes made helped allowing the ball to come out of defence easier and multiple interceptions made. Overall the second quarter saw lots of improvements and increased the goal difference into half time.

Third quarter saw further changes bringing Katie Mayo on for Rebecca Crisfield (WA) and Anna Gray on for Harriet Field (GA), both working very well together, with Katie Mayo make great drives to circle edge and Anna Gray making definitive moves in the circle to lose her defender. Defence stepped up their game and continued to make interceptions although not as many as the second quarter but Cobham continued to play the ball into their circle well and continued to shoot well.

The final quarter saw Laura Cross move to C, Elizabeth Callaghan making a very rare and star appearance at WD, Lily Rogers back on at GD and Harriet Field on; with Emily Nicholls and Emily Barber off to rest some very well worked legs and shooting arms. The last quarter saw a few errors including footwork, poor passing and passing choices, however again there were some excellent play and comments from all the team, although the Husband’s corner comments were questionable.

The final score saw a ten goal win (43-33), however a very similar score to the first half of the season (45-34).

Player’s Player and Coach’s Player went to a very well deserved Katie Mayo.
Opposition vote went to Laura Cross.
