Frome Diamonds 41 TNC 1 24 Monday 16th March

Story posted on

Having drawn to TNC earlier this season Diamonds, sponsored by Dennis Maps, were prepared for a hard game. 

With a thorough warm up completed, we were ready to give it all we had. First  quarter showed some spectacular defence from the girls, which is what they had practised on Thursday’s training. 

Starting with a couple of goals from TNC, Beverley Chapman was able to get the first tip and take it to goal. Alice Baker and Janie Bullus were on top form in the shooting circle, with lots of fight for the ball and top shooting percentage. First quarter also saw Georgina Southwell take a total of 4 interceptions, Georgina Guy take 3 and Molly Mallon take 4. With a total of 11 turnovers to goal, we set the bar at 13 goals to 3. 

Second quarter saw a dip, and we let TNC catch up: scoring 10 goals. With shooting still on form however, we still finished 9 goals up: 22-13. Having a change up at half time saw Rosie McMahon, Megan Young and Amelia Pulvertaft come on. During half time talk it appeared Janie Bullus had her fair share of jelly babies, as her performance on court was magical: split lands, contesting a 6ft plus  GK for rebounds, and getting a cheeky interception. With more impressive turnovers from Meg, Georgie (another 4 interceptions) and Freya Applegate (3 interceptions) and great rebounds from Molly, we increased our lead to 35-18. 

Captain GG came back to court last quarter, with some impressive mid court work, feeding into Speedy Alice. Amelia and Alice worked hard to shoot over the towering arms of their circle defenders, but didn’t let it faze them. More interceptions from Meg (4) and Molly (3) meant we ended on a high, with an important win and goal difference. Player of the Match went to Janie Bullus whilst Players’ Player and Captain’s Pick both went to Georgina Southwell.
