EBG 57, Sidmouth Toucans 36

EBG were worthy winners in their meeting with the Toucans.

It was EBG who took the first centre, but it was Toucans who opened the scoring!

The key to a splendid first quarter was the clinical finishing of Toucans goal-attack Kristy Platt whose incredible accuracy saw her team into the lead.

In the second quarter EBG centre Maria Collingwood began to get plenty of good ball on a regular basis to her goal-shooter Claire Hodge who, along with goal-attack Sarah Northcott helped EBG into a five goal lead.

Toucans were dealt a blow when Jo White was struck down with the reoccurrence of an old injury forcing her to watch the remainder of the game from the side lines!

Toucans battled on a player short, but it was EBG who emerged victorious after a fine game between two well-matched sides.
