G2’s Captain Kate Garner came on as WD to give Pennine something else to think about for the next quarter, which turned out to be a very close contest. However, some excellent defending by GK Connie Smith and GD Laura Scigliano, coupled with some excellent shooting by GS Beth Smith and GA Freddie Marlow, and good up-court linkage from C Katie Clarke, saw G2 lead 32-21 at half time.
G2’s Rachael Bullock came back on as WD in the third quarter, helping out in defence, whilst WA Grace Brooks fed the shooters well. G2 had a superb quarter, playing some sublime netball to lead by 30 goals at the end of this quarter, with the score at 57-27.
This ‘purple patch’ continued into the final quarter, with everyone playing an excellent standard of netball. G2 won the last quarter 22-10 (final score 79-37). The ‘Player of the Match’ award this week was won jointly by GK Connie Smith and GA Freddie Marlow. An awesome match for G2.
