Acacia 45, CTC 16
Acacia notched up their first win of the season in a hard fought match against CTC.
The first quarter saw the teams off to a slow start ending with Acacia having the slightest of leads with the score at 6-4.
The second quarter saw Acacia looking much more comfortable with both Sophie Tokens (GS) and Emma Davey (GA), finding their form and edging their team to a ten goal lead at the halfway stage.
CTC’s shooters Rosanna Dobson and Lucy Chappell displayed some accurate shooting, but their opportunities to score were kept to a minimum by good defensive work from the opposition.
A positional change brought Ellen Taylor into centre and her movement around the circle and passes into the shooters enabled Acacia to build on their lead.
CTC’s Sara Lowe (GD) drew on all her reserves and put up a strong defence, but the Acacia girls kept their cool.
A couple more position changes in the last quarter paid dividends for Acacia and they closed the game out very confidently.
The CTC Player of the Match was Sara Lowe with Acacia’s award going to Ellen Taylor
