The Imps worked hard throughout the court during the first quarter, defending solidly as a team from start to finish. They overturned possession in all areas of the court and managed to gain a six goal lead through Becky Baker’s excellent shooting. The first quarter score ended 15-9 in Lincoln’s favour.
Lincoln made a number of unforced errors during the second quarter, allowing Northants JMs to draw the quarter 10-10. However, this still meant the Imps were ahead 25-19 at half time.
The final quarter exemplified Lincoln City’s solidarity. The team overturned the ball on numerous occasions throughout the court and the defensive formation worked well against a tall JMs GS. The final score ended 56-35 – a much needed win for the Imps.
WD Lizzie Saywell was awarded best player by the opposition. She overturned possession consistently and made strong drives in the centre court to help take the ball to attack. Anna Gilbert was awarded best player by Lincoln for her excellent drives at centres, feeds into the shooter and excellent work rate at GA.
