This week in round four there were a few changes to our three teams. The efnl watched closely the past three rounds and decided we belonged in the wrong sections. They readjusted the fixtures and put us in the correct ones. This makes things little more even and gives our girls a better chance at winning a few games.
The white team had a late one playing at 9:15pm against East Ringwood, with an early out due to an injury in the first quarter the girls had to readjust and play with seven. The girls were fatigued towards the end of the game however they pulled through and got their first win for the season. The defence held up against some great shooters from East Ringwood, as well as the mid court bringing the ball down nicely to the goal shooters Nicole and Jessica with 33 goals combined.
The black team played against Norwood this week, starting with a lead of a couple of goals and keeping that lead for almost three quarters. Norwood then gained a few goals which had them in front and they held that lead until the end. Unfortunately, the girls losing by 3 goals. Having their main shooter out for this round they had to rotate between the girls and managed to have a top scorer in Jemma dysktra with 14 goals to her name. The girls are keen to tale the court next week for round 5 and hopefully get a win.
The red team played against Nunawading this week. They had a couple of key players out and found some other girls to fill in. It was a little bit of struggle to keep up with Nunawading. However, they held them back in the first 2 quarters and didn’t let them get ahead to much but in the last half Nunawading sprinted ahead and managed to win by a large margin. Hopefully next week the girls are back with a full team and get play at their best and get a win again.
