Match Report by Emma Hook

Q1 GS Orlagh GA Emma WA Becki C Ore WD Beth  GD Rachel Clarkson GK Rochelle
A great start from the Eclipse girls saw three points on the board before Hornets responded. However we struggled to find a level of calm as the play felt unnecessarily fast and unkind passes saw lots of unforced errors.
Score at quarter time, 12-8 to Eclipse.
Q2 GS Orlagh  GA Emma WA Becki C Ore WD Beth  GD Rachel Clarkson GK Rochelle
A fantastic quarter from the Eclipse girls, scoring another consistent 12 goals, whilst limiting Hornets to only four goals. Great pressure from Beth at WD allowed Rochelle at keeper to make a number of interceptions.
24-12 To Eclipse at half time.
Q3 GS Rochelle  GA Orlagh WA Beth C Becki WD Ore GD Rachel Clarkson GK Rochelle
A new unit in attack, meant it took some time for us to settle in and find our rhythm around the physical circle defence. But great hassle from Becki and the defence saw lots of tips and turnovers.
Injury time called by Rachel Clarkson, Emma comes on at WA, Beth moves to WD, Ore moved to GD.
33-21 to Eclipse
Q4 GS Rochelle  GA Orlagh WA Emma C Becki WD Beth GD Rachel Clarkson GK Rochelle
Following injury time in the previous quarter, Rachel Clarkson comes back on at GD.
Patience and support in attack was vital in this quarter to keep possession and win the game. Although we felt the pressure from Hornets especially feeding our shooting circle, everyone kept working and supporting each other, whilst some great long range shots from Orlagh and Rochelle confirmed our win.
Final score 43-29 to Eclipse.
Player of the match went to both Becki and Beth for adapting to different positions and being effective on court.
