Wessex Ladies Division 2
|Yateley Silverbacks Ladies||48||Loss|
With a strong end to the 2017/18 season, the Suns were in a good position to kick on for the new season. With some losses to the squad both from injury, maternity and geography the team is running on a core group of 7 with additions from the Storm and Cobra juniors.
The game started well, with some strong performances inside from Silvia and Charlotte. We ran the majority of the game with a 10 point lead, and only in the last few minutes did it ever waiver.
Coach Trinder’s assessment:
There are areas for improvement; boxing out and rebounding is an areas we are not consistent enough in, and ensuring we read the game situation and adjust accordingly. It got too tight in the final 2 minutes because we rushed our offence and didn’t run the clock down knowing we were in the lead.
With a win there are of course many positives. Some good shooting from Clair and Ellie outside both totally 9 points each. Charlotte made 8 and Silvia 10 which is a strong inside partnership for the Suns.
There was also a strong return from maternity from Laura Bartley, an exciting addition to our setup for this season that will make the Suns a tough team to beat inside. I’d like to also thank Monique and Eddi who came along from Cobra juniors – both excellent additions to today’s game.
Thursday 18th October away to Winchester Angels in the Richard Bell Cup. League action doesn’t return until November so we are then back to training to continue the hard work.
