Kia Ora 9 vs SMOG11
Kia Ora Score: 21
Opposition Score: 15
The game was a little slow, but we ended up making that work for us! We only had seven people today, and Aimee was feeling a little under the weather, so we knew it was going to be a tough game. But we pushed through, held off a last quarter push back from SCOG and came away with the win!!
Our second quarter was incredible. Our lines were beautiful coming down the court, our triangles around the circle and into the shooters were great and our defensive team kept SMOG to just two goals, both of which were scored in the last two minutes!
Michelle was our player of the match today, with great rebounds, several clean intercepts and deflections, as well as being a good option bring the ball out of the circle. She and Georgia are a formidable pair!! Justine also deserves a notable mention, she was a calming influence in the mid court, playing 3/4 at C, bringing the ball, being there as a good reset option when the ball was struggling into the shooters. Beautiful patience and passing into the shooters, and good balancing with Gemma made it easy to bring the ball down.
We really struggled with our centre passes in the second half, so we will be working on setting up before the whistle is blown, and how to get out in front of our partners.
Thanks to SMOG for a great, clean game! And also to our supporters on the side line :)
