Good Wins Come To Those Who Wait

Posted by Jo O'Daly on 23 September 2019

Good wins come to those who wait. 

Two games in, finishing in a draw and a narrow loss, Griffins were hunting that allusive win. What a win it was! 

During the first quarter Griffins worked hard to get the measure of their players. The first quarter finished in a draw with Griffins 6 and Marjons 6. 

Quarter time discussions offered Donna the opportunity to offer beneficial insight to players on court. Defenders Emily, Lizzie and April worked hard against rangy shooters and limited their goals to 3 in the second quarter. Shooters Courtney and Ellen broke through Marjon’s defence and put Griffins ahead by 4. 

Changes were made at half time. Jasmine took the GA bib and Naomi came on to play WD. Griffins maintained their disciplined and measured approach in the third quarter. Centre court players Madd and Jo worked well to keep Griffins shooters well supplied. Defenders Lizzie and Emily made some amazing interceptions which Griffins capitalised on. Griffins lead at three quarter time 20-12. 

In the final quarter tiredness did not get the better of Griffins. Whilst Marjon increased their goals by 6. Griffins increased theirs by 8. 

Without losing a quarter Griffins took the win at 28-18. A fantastic effort. Player of the match went to Jo at C. Well done Jo!
