Final Score Eagles 38 : 42 Dreams
On Sunday we played in the u19 div 2 league against dreams. The final score was 38-42 to Dreams.
The first quarter started off well as we were neck and neck till the end. The attack were very decisive whilst working well together and the defence shut down most opportunities to shoot. We were happy as we ended the quarter 9-9 and were determined to keep the gap close.
Some changes were made in the second quarter, and we started to lag behind. It was partially because we began to panic and were under pressure. It therefore ended 24-17.
In the third quarter we carried on making unforced errors, although we were intense and did not give up. It was probably because our heads went down a little. The third quarter was our worst one unfortunately. The ending result was 36-24.
Finally, we played our best in the fourth quarter. When we turned the ball over, it was better as we began to relax and waited for changes in direction. This resulted in us moving down the court smoothly and after a while we started to release the ball on the first second and it fastened our play. We began to catch up and we played much better !! Although, if we hand been a bit more urgent we could’ve caught up a bit more.
The final result was 42-38. We beat them in that quarter as we scored 14 and they scored 6. It was a very good and stressful game as we did not give up although our mistakes let us down. We now know what to work on for our next matches, and carry on improving !!
Well done girls :)) and thank you Dreams for a great game. Congratulations to a well deserved player of the match Charlotte, who played a variety of positions and kept going throughout splendidly !!
