Sleaford Barge made a very good start in this week’s East Midlands Netball Regional League Division 2 game against Leicestershire’s Grasshopper Netball Club (28/10/12). However, Grasshoppers came back with some good feeds over Sleaford’s defence, into their shooter. The first quarter ended 15-15.
The two teams were evenly matched in the second quarter too and both teams ended the first half all square at 27-27.
After some changes and a very positive team talk from Sleaford’s coach, the team came out “all guns blazing” during the third quarter and took the lead by a single goal. Sleaford then made another change in the defensive end, which helped to break down Grasshoppers’ attacks even more and therefore pull away from their opponents.
The final score was Sleaford Barge 56-48 Grasshopper Netball Club
