Match reports – Week 24 – 8.3.2020

Whitwick Ignite vs Ashby Tornados
Ignite had a great game against Ashby Tornados, a relentless and fast paced game but we didn’t give up. 27-45 to Ashby and an MVP for Amy Matravers

Swadlincote Swifts vs Ashby Fire
A 9:00 start time and Ashby Fire and Swad Swifts were in action. Swifts started strong and gained a small lead, but it was fought back from Ashby who took the lead and finished strong. Swifts circle defence put the pressure on Ashby attack throughout the game. Great shooting by Shiv which earned her GOG. Well done to all of swifts, I’m proud to captain this team and congratulations to Dani Taylor for Swifts GOG

Gracedieu Diamonds vs Coalville Jets.
Even though we had the cameras rolling throughout the game due to a player of ours needing to film for her A-level studies, a good enjoyable game was had today. The 1st two quarters were fairly even with both teams winning 1 each.
At half time Diamonds had a reshuffle swapping Tash in GD up to GA and Fiona in GA down to GK. This provided extra speed in the attacking circle and strength in the defensive circle.
The swap proved fruitful as Diamonds then pulled ahead winning the following two quarters and ending the game 60 – 44 victorious.
A well played game by both sides, friendly yet competitive, an enjoyable game where we were able to explore 2nd positions of a few players.
