Down but not Out

Date Played: 6/25/2016

Kia Ora Team: Team 8

Opposition Team Name: Ories 2

Kia Ora Score: 42

Opposition Score: 28

The game was: Right from the get go, things didn't go right for us with a number of unforced errors in quick succession, contributed to Ories building a 6 goal lead at the end of the 1st, but a spirited fight back from the girls, saw the deficit brought back to 3 but unfortunately thats as close as it got. Ories taking the game 42 -28 which doesn't reflect how competitive it should have been. The flow of the game became frustrating for the players with a high number of "no calls" not made but that to one side, the girls kept their composure and fought to the end like a team who backs one another. Special mention to Tenille in helping us out at GA for the first half as well as Captain Abby who played one half at GK then into the unfamiliar role at GA for the second. Well done Team 8, keep your heads held high,we will bounce back next game!

A highlight was : Seeing our WA and Centres, running their pockets on Attack.

A special mention to: Amaria, Abby, Holly and Beth for always hustling and giving a 100% on D. 
AJ, Emma & Amy for always performing on attack.
Erin for making difficult passes and goals look easy.

Team effort all round!

Following this game we plan to...: Take the positives from the game and lets build on it this Saturday!

Thanks to: Tenille for being our super sub. Chris as our stat man for the day and Suzie for taking some new team photos!
