Match reports for this weekend!
The 1sts from Rebecca Fitch:
At the weekend the Firsts travelled across the country to face the mighty Knights. We didn’t have fantastic records against them from last year, being NL newbies and whatnot – so we wanted to show off how far we’ve come. We started off super strong!! Until about 15 minutes in we were going goal for goal, there was nothing in it! We had an incredibly competitive start to the match, but with some solid shooting from the Knights team, they managed to pull ahead at half time finishing 18-13. We aimed to go into the second half and try to regain a tighter scoreline. We carried on fighting but Knights were on form. The final score didn’t reflect the game and we have come on leaps and bounds since last year! Cracking performance, we all gave them a great run, and finished 33-18. Thanks to Heidi and Ben Smith for making the journey halfway across the country to represent Bristol Thunder with us!! It’s always appreciated, and let’s bring on Bec this Saturday 💙
The 2nds from Alex Webb:
The seconds welcomed Exeter to bgs last weekend. Over the past couple of years Exeter have been our nemesis but we were determined not to let them get the better of us again. We started strongly and they were rattled, forcing them to take a timeout. They were still in touching distance at half time but then we unleashed Adam Mason and they couldn’t cope, 4 goals in about as many minutes and they were finished. An amazing performance by everyone on the pitch. Special mentions to MVP Ben Smith, coach Jake Cooper and shotclocker Clare Derrett!
