Breezers stamp out Grasshoppers in final quarter - Saturday 27th Sept 2014
Sep 27, 2014, 5:39 pm
The Middlesex team had a last quarter come back on Saturday to secure a 1 goal win over Grasshoppers. The game got off to a shaky start giving Grasshoppers a clear advantage and allowed them to dictate a fast paced game. Still trying out new players and combinations resulted in the Breezers girls taking some time to settle in. The second quarter proved better. Things were looking up and Breezers won the quarter reducing the goal difference to just 2.
A complete team change in the mid court at half time was bold and failed to pay off in the 3rd quarter with Breezers only scoring 4 goals and increasing the goal deficit by 6. It did however give us time to settle into our new positions and calm the game down.
Some stern words from captain Heather going into the final quarter and 1 final change had the desired effect. 3 quick Breezers goals gave us the belief that we could win this and everyone stepped up their game. The circle defence of Katherine and Jess unnerved the Grasshoppers shooters and some top quality shooting from Bex and Heather ensured that we capitalised on every chance.
The final few minutes were tense but Breezers held on and won by just 1 goal. Cheers all round.
Well Done Team : Katherine, Jess, Emma S, Foxy, Vicky, Macca, Heather and Becca
