Falcons Black took on Loughborough rivals TFC during this weekend’s England Netball Prem 3 game. Falcons started the game well but TFC capitalised on a few misplaced passes to take a good early lead. Despite this, Falcons’ Hannah Joseph continued to get free and combined with Liv Mason and Harriet Gill well in the shooting circle. The quarter finished 7-10 to TFC.
Harriet moved to GA and Olivia to GS during the break. The second quarter began with Falcons’ defence applying heavy pressure to TFC’s attack which led to a number of tips and interceptions for Falcons. The team also showed great patience in the through court play which helped Falcons win the quarter 14-8 (overall score Falcons 21-18 TFC).
The last quarter saw both teams go goal for goal. However, Falcons’ Harriet scored a fantastic long range shot, which allowed her team to win the quarter by a single goal and take the match 46-32. A well-deserved win for Falcons!
