Flamstead Blacks v Alpine Press

On a miserably, wet day in November we had our fixture against Alpine Press. A team we had played sometime before but a slightly different make up of players. The game started off extremely well matched and it was alternate goals for the first quarter. Neither team were gaining any lean to speak of or losing their centre. Final score after the first quarter was 4 goals to us and three to them.

 After a quick team morale boost we were back on court. The flow of play was fast on both sides some good interceptions were being made – Wellsie and Emma in particular. The state of play was still very level and no team seemed to be stronger than the other. Becky was brilliant at leaning and defending and showed great strength in being able to ignore unnecessary banter from her opponent. Well done Becky. The second quarter finished 9 goals to us and 8 to them.

 Shooting today was pleasing from both Nicky and Tracy. We do not envy the girls positions in goal it is a tense place to be when games are so tightly played. Great work to you both, have faith in your ability Crippsy.

 Our mid court play was strong too, we were fortunate enough to have lovely Vicky to play for us and she fitted in beautifully knowing where to be and when. Thanks Vicky for playing for us on such a grey day.

 I wanted to celebrate no footwork calls but my team were quick to point one out… shame on me.

 The third quarter, notorious for dodgy play, when tiredness kicks in was ironically our best quarter today. Have we shaken off this bad quarter feeling? Play continued to be spaced out when and centres were become overturned more often. Final score for this quarter 15 to Flamstead and 8 to Alpine.

 In the last quarter we remained strong and our fitness and communication was great. There was dodging, accurate overheads, targets up, spot on goals and loose balls picked up. In this last quarter we definitely played our own game and I am extremely proud of how we played today. FInal score 21 – 10 to Flamstead.

 Congratulations to everyone


Match Report – Saturday 10th November 2012

Flamstead Blacks v LG

With just 7 players this week Flamstead held their own in a very tight 1st quarter which finished 6-9 to LG.

The start of the 2nd quarter saw Lizzie go over on her ankle ( ouch ) meaning she was unable to continue. Get better soon Lizzie. Despite great play by Crippsy and Nikki we were unable to reduce the goal difference and LG pulled away finishing this quarter strongly at 9 – 18.

The third quarter saw Tracy move to WA and the quarter turned very physical with lots of contact and footwork being called. Both Tracy and Kerry put in an awesome attacking display and we finished this quarter 13 – 29.

Our final quarter was by far our best with 6 players. Becky and Emma battled hard in defence despite having to contend with a spare player. Kerry and Tracy continued to run their socks off intercepting numerous passes and Nikki and Crippsy put 6 goals away between them.

The final score was 19 – 38.

A special mention to our lone supporter Lizzies dad. Thank you.

Thank you to Natalie for umpiring.

NB: As Emma wrote this report it is not suprising she did not mention the fact that she had an absolutely fantastic game, going for every single ball and getting quite a lot of them, well done Emma!
