Match Reports – Week 22 – 23.2.2020

Swadlincote Swifts vs Hornettes Blacks
A couple of different players in the swad line up today, with Rebecca Gracie and Hannah Wale taking to the court. The changes didn’t deter swifts who dominated from the start. Swifts made some great interceptions, in defence and attack, and converted the turnovers. Congratulations to the two GOGs, Hannah Wale and Sandie Greatorex. And well done swifts for playing with patience against a constantly changing opposition.

Donington Diamonds vs Bosworth Roses
A great match today between Donington Diamonds and Bosworth Roses. At the end of the first quarter there were only 2 in it but Diamonds led 9-7. There were some great defence tactics in both ends and intercepts by both GK’s made it difficult for the ball to get into the circle. Donington managed to draw away and finished the 2nd quarter 21-11. The third quarter saw Diamonds take a 13 point lead. Both teams dug deep in the 4th quarter and Diamonds secured the win with a final score of 41-22.
Enjoyable match and a very well deserved Diamonds player of the match for Fiona Cantwell – her first one!
