Fight­back not enough to close gap

Hinckley Times - - SPORT -

HINCK­LEY Ladies C team were at home to Alec High this week in a re­ar­ranged fix­ture. Hinck­ley quickly found them­selves fall­ing be­hind as they adapted to a new for­ma­tion with two play­ers out.

How­ever, they started to set­tle and drew closer be­ing just two goals be­hind at the end of the first quar­ter. They bat­tled hard but the ac­cu­racy of the Alec High Goal Shooter soon be­gan to make an im­pact on the game, de­spite the re­lent­less ef­forts of the Hinck­ley de­fence.

At the end if the third quar­ter Alec High had pulled ahead 35-25. In the fi­nal pe­riod Hinck­ley dug their heels in and gave it ev­ery­thing, manag­ing to re­duce the deficit but de­spite some great move­ment around the court, this was not enough to stop Alec High tak­ing the game 40-32. WA Liz Gam­ble won POM for her great per­for­mance in at­tack.

There was a strong win for Hinck­ley U14s against Griff and Co­ton this Sun­day. Go­ing out con­fi­dently and keep­ing their fo­cus, Hinck­leys girls moved the ball quickly through the cen­tre court to the ea­gerly wait­ing shoot­ing team.

Strong passes and good com­mu­ni­ca­tion saw an­other im­proved per­for­mance with great block­ing lead­ing to nu­mer­ous de­fen­sive in­ter­cep­tions. Player of the match Katie Tal­bot.
