Sunday 2nd October:England Premier Div 1 Match v The Downes

A close encounter was the name of the day – this was not a match for the faint hearted. This game was always going to be close although The Downes were relegated last season they have come back up with a vengeance. Having imported a few new players to strengthen their new squad and Natalie & Eunice at the helm you knew you had a match on your hands.
Fortunately we managed to get one of our squad players Lindsay back for a game before she goes off to Australia to represent England, but are still waiting for a few more to recover from injury.
With similar shooting opportunities New Cambell found themselves 1 goal down at the end of the 1st Quarter and this continued up to half time. The 2nd half New Cambell introduced their new young signing of Holly Sims a Mavericks Youth and young England player representing the club for the first time along with other changes in each area of the court. This quarter Cambell saw some excellent court play from Holly N & Rose which enabled more shooting opportuniites (18-11) then Downs but were only able to win this by the odd goal. With scores all level going into the last quarter both teams had the opportunity to pull away with Downes achieving 22 shooting opps compared to N Cambell’s 14 due to some really tight defending pressure from Hannah & Katie the Downes defences. New Cambell had the oppotunity to win through some excellent interceptions through out the match by Captain Katie Tulloch to win but missed some vital shots at the end and the ball travelled up to the other end for Downes shooters to score the winning goal in the dying seconds of the match.
Quarter Scores: 8 – 9: 7 – 7: 10 – 9: 9 – 10 Final Score: 34 – 35:

Shooting Percentage: New Cambell 34/62 = 55%; The Downes 35/63= 56%
Squad: Sarah T: Holly S: Gemma: Holly N: Rose: Katie: Becky: Sarah R: Claire: Ophelia: Lindsay K:
PS Another 2 1/2 hr journey to travel just the 30 miles home – nightmare
