Kia Ora Team: Team 6

Opposition Team Name: SN WAGS

Kia Ora Score: 20

Opposition Score: 27


We knew today was going to be a tough game with ex prem players in the other team, however we planned to play our game and have fun. We were drawn 10-10 at half time and we were completely in the game. SNWAGS surprised us with a space/zone defence and this was our first time coming up against this so was a bit hard to adjust. But with fitness on our side we were able to drive lots and show some patience to get the ball in the circle. 

We lost it in the last quarter and ended up losing by 7 however this by no means reflected the game. It was a tough game but really great to get pushed and challenged! Bring on next time.

Work ons: attacking when the other team are marking space. Also making sure we ease new combos into the game- with many options and changes in the shooting circle and midcourt we need to make sure we work new people in.

Special mentions: Alice and Beth. Alice for her consistency and hussle throughout the court, always being an option and great feeds. Beth was chosen by the opposition as POTM, she did so well defending a holding shooter and caused soo many turnovers. 

Well done girls. And well done to the whole team, a tough game but well fought!
