After a bumpy start to the New Year, the girls found their mojo again on Saturday in a thrilling match vs. Oaklands.
Two focused training sessions the week before set the team up with confident, aggressive new plays and strong defence. First to score, Hornets then matched Oaklands score for score and drew them to team fouls in several quarters.
The Hornets teamwork and positioning was impressive and Oaklands failed to close down an on-fire Kiylo who clocked up an impressive 28 points. Work still needed on conversion of our free throws and maximising rebound opportunities, we lost out on points that could have easily given us the win.
The strong Oaklands side took the lead at the end of the third quarter and despite a big push from Hornets finished the match on top. Summing things up, Coach Jenner added “Fantastic game yesterday, a wonderful team effort, everyone worked really hard and particularly the two Mollies who were not feeling well”.
Great to see our girls looking and feeling like winners again, celebrating their performance after the match with a song and dance in the changing rooms! All set to meet Herts Warriors at home this Sunday.
Top Scorers: Kiylo Solgabade 28, Ella Messetter 11, Morgan Davis 6.
