Herts County League Match Report vs Harpenden 7th Oct

On a chilly October morning 7 Crosskeys ladies prepared to take on the might of Harpenden. and by might we mean literally. It’s not often Joyce meets her vertical match. After a cautious first quarter, where we were taken by surprise at the go-go gadget arms of the Harpenden GS, we were just 1 down at 9-10 and keen to get stuck in. A storming 2nd quarter saw the new attacking combo settle in with some lovely movement and feeding from Beth and Jo, and shooting accuracy sharpening up with some lovely holding by Joyce, pushing us to a 12-goal lead at the end of the second quarter.

Third (or ‘power’) quarter was all about the defence, with immense pressure being exerted by Jo.M, Rosa and Claire.M slowing our opponents right down in their attack, leading them to spend 30secs or more each time trying to get their shooters in a position to go for goal. Entering the 4th quarter with a decent cushion still intact, tiredness showed a little as we let them come back at us, however for Harpenden it was too little too late, with a convincing final score of 39-32 to Crosskeys cementing their fate. Player of the match: Jo.M at WD for multiple interceptions at a position not usually played (we’ll see about that…)


Team: Joyce, Chaz, Beth, Jo.W, Jo.M, Rosa, Claire.M
