Blus­tery con­di­tions saw a change of game play to take an early lead in the first quar­ter. Com­mu­ni­ca­tion was key within the strong de­fence of Hinck­ley against the strong shoot­ers of Go­diva B .

At­tack main­tained fo­cused and sturdy de­liv­er­ing pre­cise feeds into the shoot­ers , who cap­i­talised on their op­por­tu­ni­ties . Hinck­ley B took an­other win 39-26 with POM go­ing to Lynda San­ders C team

Hinck­ley C team started well in their match against Er­nes­ford C this week and were one goal ahead at the end of the first quar­ter 12-11. How­ever in the sec­ond Er­nes­ford upped their game and Hinck­ley only man­aged to score 3 goals fall­ing be­hind 26-15 by half time. Er­nes­ford took full ad­van­tage of their tall GS as Hinck­ley strug­gled to stop the high balls in to her. Hinck­ley kept fight­ing to the end but the fi­nal score was a 50-32 win for Er­nes­ford. Sue Ley had an ex­cel­lent game at cen­tre win­ning her player of the match. D team Hinck­ley played Keres­ley B at home and af­ter prac­tic­ing on some of their con­cerns from last week were look­ing for­ward to it. The first quar­ter started off slowly and Hinck­ley’s shoot­ers were not able to make the most of their shoot­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, score ended 5-10. A tac­ti­cal change af­ter the first quar­ter switch­ing C and WA and fol­low­ing cen­tre pass prac­tice in the week the cen­tres were ef­fec­tive with few er­rors. Hinck­ley felt they were im­prov­ing de­spite still be­ing be­hind by 10 at half time (11-21). In the third quar­ter D’s at­tack stayed calm work­ing the goal cir­cle beau­ti­fully pass­ing around the cir­cle and work­ing to­gether to take ad­van­tage of goal op­por­tu­ni­ties. Keres­ley’s at­tack found it dif­fi­cult to get through Hinck­ley’s de­fence with many in­ter­cep­tions by GK, GD and WD and also Hinck­ley’s C ac­tively us­ing key stage 2 de­fence on many oc­ca­sions. Hinck­ley pulled this quar­ter back and closed the gap to 22–27. An ex­cit­ing last quar­ter saw Hinck­ley bring­ing the score to within 1 goal. Keres­ley started to panic which had a detri­men­tal ef­fect on Hinck­ley’s play­ers too.

De­spite end to end play with im­proved team work, good passes down court into the cir­cle with great shoot­ing by GA, Hinck­ley were un­for­tu­nate to let the score slip and lost the game 32 – 35.

Player of the match went to He­len Vause play­ing C for the ma­jor­ity of the game.
