A gulf currently separates these two teams in the league and it showed in the game; Grasshopper 1 was just too strong. The team started very well and by the end of the first quarter led 13-4.
Grasshopper 1 capitalised on this in the second half, winning it 18-4, to lead 31-9 at half time. At this point, Sadie Burch replaced Carly Varney at WD and the circle defence – Holly Walker and Laura Watson – swapped over, becoming GK and GD respectively.
The third quarter saw another strong performance, with Grasshopper 1 winning it 13-4, to lead 44-13 going into the final quarter. This quarter saw everyone remain in the same positions, winning this period by a 10-8 margin. The final score was 54-21. Player of the Match went to Katie Long, who returned some amazing shooting stats!
Overall, an excellent team performance and it leaves Grasshopper 1 sitting third in the EM Regional Division 2 and now challenging for the play-offs.
