Final Score: Eagles 35 v CN Select 20 (W)
It is a small league with just 6 teams so it was important to get a good start and the girls who are from Eagles Under 15 and Under 16 age groups delivered with a convincing win against an older and taller Guildford based club.
The court and lighting left a little to be desired and there were errors from both sides in the first quarter. Maria made some excellent interceptions which set a pattern for the game. After the first quarter Eagles were leading 8 – 2
The second quarter followed a similar pattern with Kate G at goal shooter scoring some important goals. The girls applied the pressure in the centre court and finished the second quarter 16 – 10 up.
The third quarter saw Eagles really step up the pressure with Olivia at goal defence putting real pressure on the CN Select attacking player and was later voted player of the match. Eagles had extended the lead to 28 – 11, CN Select had been restricted to just one goal in that quarter.
The foot came slightly off the gas in quarter 4 and CN Select found their shooting range but the final score was a comprehensive win for Eagles and a great start to the league season. Sorry no pictures – but then the lighting was not very good.
