Strong fight­back not quite enough

Hinckley Times - - SPORT -

IN the first game since the Christ­mas break, Hinck­ley B team hosted JLR. The first quar­ter caught Hinck­ley by some sur­prise and be­fore they knew it the quar­ter ended with JLR lead­ing 11-4.

Dur­ing the quar­ter time break Hinck­ley B made a cou­ple of po­si­tional changes and re­grouped. The sec­ond quar­ter started much more pos­i­tively and Hinck­ley B came out fight­ing to close the gap. Bet­ter com­mu­ni­ca­tion, steady play up court and con­fi­dent shoot­ing saw Hinck­ley close in on JLR, who were un­able to hold back the at­tack­ing streaks from the Hinck­ley side. At half time there were now just 2 goals di­vid­ing the teams.

The sec­ond half con­tin­ued in an end to end fash­ion with very lit­tle sep­a­rat­ing the teams.

Un­for­tu­nately Hinck­ley couldn’t do enough to steal the lead back and the game fin­ished 38-36 to JLR.

POM went to Steph at GD and Emily Har­ri­son at GA.
