Match report by Tracy Wells

Flamstead Blacks v Connexions Tornadoes

 A wet and finger ‘numbingly’ cold morning and court conditions were damp and slippery. A Team of seven players, and a special thanks to borrowed Flamstead Green player – Sarah Johnson for helping out in the shooting circle! First quarter was kicked off with speed and we could tell it was going to be a fast game all round. Accurate, quick passes were needed as Tornadoes were putting up a good defence, intercepting quite a few of our passes. This quarter ended 6 – 8 to Tornadoes.

Flamstead Blacks were all fired up to win this game and came out highly motivated.  Good defence all round, and blocking out their centre passes worked in our favour to get the ball to the shooting circle. Fantastic teamwork by Nikki and Sarah in the shooting circle, (despite a very feisty Tornadoes GK!), didn’t perturb Flamstead Blacks achieving 8 goals this quarter bringing the score to 14 -14.

The third quarter saw some change of position for Tornadoes, and the pace remained fast moving.  There were some excellent passes into the shooting circle from Mercer Magic and Crippsy (who played out of her usual position as WA). Our defence continued to hold their own with some great interceptions, coupled with continued accurate, fast paced passes and shooting, resulted in a further 9 goals being scored. Third quarter ended 23-18 to Flamstead Blacks.

Tornadoes came out all guns ablazing and were ready for a fight to turnover the score to their advantage.  Flamstead Blacks, however, did not want to be defeated and continued to hold their own. Tornadoes intercepted several of our passes into the shooting circle and their defence was tight. Despite some great interceptions from Emma and Becky, Tornadoes managed to up their game and fought to the end and scored their highest number of goals in the last quarter. A nail biting finish for us all but Flamstead Blacks put up a good fight and won 26-25.

A friendly and competitive game with a great end result for Flamstead Blacks.

Many thanks to Jo from Phoenix for umpiring.
