Senior Regional Match

New Cambells 1st Regional Match which was played at their Home venue of Frances Bardsley in Horchurch saw a team from Surrey demoted from Division 1 last season.
A nervous start saw Gems take a one goal lead in this 1st Quarter with both teams having the same number of shots at goal. A shaky start with timing as expected to be slightly out at the start of the season and players getting to know what each other can do.
2nd Q as normal New Cambell change their team at each quarter and today it made a big difference in defence where we saw Adele Bourne being introduced in to the defending circle along with newcomer to the squad Aziza just 17 years of age coming on at WD. New Cambell turned the ball over 16 times in this quarter as defensive pressure took its toll on Gems all the way down the court and restricted them to just 6 scoring opportunities and just 3 goals scored.
3rd Q both teams made changes with Gems bringing on fresh legs at WD. Our court play was starting to improve and we saw some great attacking moves between Jade and Terri on the centre court and some really good rebounding from our Defences of Adele & Charlene.
4th Q with New Cambell holding a reasonable lead Gems fought back hard putting a lot of pressure on our attacking end which seemed to ignite our shooters of Katie & Rochelle to put 15 goals away.
The new defending combination of Adele, Charlene and Aziza shows great potential for the future combined with our stalwarts of the previous season holds well for the coming matches and it is always nice to get a good Win under the belt in the first match.
Squad: Rochelle: Katie Mc: Tracey: Terri: Jade: Aziza: MaryAnn: Charlene: Adele:
Score: 11 – 12: 9 – 3: 11 – 11: 15 – 12: Final Score: New Cambell 46 – 38 Gems
