A massive thanks for our super subs! and to the coaches for asking round and pulling together players - you guys are amazing!
Talk about a stressful week! Down to 3 regular players due to illness & injury it was starting to look like defaulting was on the cards....
However we managed to scrape together 7 and off we went to face Vic 18.
With new combos (and positions) all over the court, the goal for the team was just to settle and get used to each other.
Super solid first half with everyone backing each other up, options onto the ball. The attack end was patient and calm, waiting for the space to open & treasuring possession.
Ash stepped up into C and was an absolute workhorse, some lovely quick feeds into the circle and a great help in bringing the ball down court.
Our newly thrown together defensive unit worked well considering they'd never been thrown together in the circle, disrupting the vic shooters and causing havoc with tips & intercepts from both.
Unfortunately we couldn't quite keep it together for the 4 quarters but I was more than happy with everyone's efforts all things considered :)
Thank goodness we have a week off, rest up and get well ladies - it all starts again on the 22nd!
