Charnwood Warriors turn on the style in dominant victory
AFTER a two week break Warriors were back in action at their home, playing host to Bath in England Netball’s National Premier League.
Warriors had some more youth within the squad this week that they were looking to expose.
The first quarter Bath came out fast with quick ball speed and through court attack. It took Warriors some time to settle, senior players Jaydene and Tripp controlled the team well getting them off to a lead of 18-12.
The second quarter saw Warriors defence of McGlynn, Brown and Tripp apply pressure to Bath’s attack forcing them to make errors, whilst Gallacher converted to goals the other end giving Warriors the lead 35-22 at half time.
Griffin entered the game controlling Warriors tempo connecting seamlessly with Thacker and BrockTaylor to form a clinical attack, whilst McGlynn made five flying turnovers, Warriors stamped authority within the first seven minutes of the third quarter, with that it was time to debut 16 year old Bairstow in the middle and give more court time to Hughes at GS, both slotted in nicely leaving Warriors ahead 54-33.
With the youngsters gaining vital exposure in the 4th quarter and new combinations tested Lount and Tripp worked well together in defence, whilst Alexandar continue to bring the speed to the attack. Warriors finished with a great win of 64-47, most importantly growing some youth for the future.
Warriors face Worcester away next Sunday.
