Thank you to Georgina and Yasmin for scoring/timekeeping.
Falcons initially hit the ground running against local rivals TFC but their opponents soon hit back, capitalising on some of Falcons’ unforced errors and producing some good attacking play of their own. The quarter ended 11 all.
Harriet moved to GS and Olivia moved to GA for the second quarter. Falcons’ defence began the quarter applying heavy pressure on TFC’s attack, which creating a number of tips and interceptions for Falcons. However TFC once again capitalised on some of Falcons’ unforced errors to take the quarter 13-10 (overall score Falcons 21-24 TFC).
Jess came on at WD replacing Kathryn. With fresh legs in the centre court; Falcons were able to bring the ball down court more easily to help it flow. The shooters created space in the circle with ease and lost the quarter by a single goal (12-13). Overall score 33-37.
