Hillcrest vs Didasko
Variety is the spice of life....
As Didasko did not have a full team, they asked us if the match could be played as a friendly, with us lending them a player - as Hillcrest is a friendly club we agreed but said that we would lend them a different player each quarter - Jodie, Jennaleigh, Emily H and Charlotte took their WD bib each time.
We also took the opportunity to try people in different positions; first quarter defence Ciera and Kaylin(!), with Ines, Emily H, Emily N, Charlotte and Jennaleigh. First quarter was a little tentative with Hillcrest winning 3-1; changes at quarter time moved Emily N to GK, Kaylin at GD, and Ciera, Emily H, Jodie, Charlotte and Lucy taking the ball through to goal - we won this one 9-1, half time score 12-2; more changes followed with Jodie at GK and the team in front of her Ines, Ciera, Kaylin, Jennaleigh, Emily N and Charlotte a winning combo score of 15-0; last quarter saw Ines at GK with Emily H, Jodie, Kaylin, Jennaleigh, Lucy and Emily N. Charlotte's playing for Didasko gave them a lot more confidence in defence and back up through the court which made the score a lot closer but we won 5-4, giving a final score of 32-6.
Thank you to everyone for "mixing it up" and given each position a go. Our defence throughout the court and the pressure put on Didasko won us the match as by the time the ball got to the shooters, they were relaxed and ready to "do their thing", a well-deserved win.
