Griffins Struggled To Field Team

Posted by Jo O'Daly on 23 February 2020

Griffins struggled to field a team for their clash against experienced SSG, so went into the game with a straight 7 and a new line up in defence. Ellen in at GK, mid-fielder April taking up the position of GD in the absence of Emily and Lizzie and a senior debut for Jess Patterson (WD).

Unfortunately April sustained an injury early in the match but to her credit ploughed through, as Griffins had no subs. There was only 1 goal splitting the teams at the end of the quarter 7 - 8 to SSG.  In the second quarter Ellen and April turned over the ball numerous times in defence but Griffins were unable to capitalise by converting their shots. SSG’s defence were on point keeping Griffins goal tally to 2, half time score was 18 - 9 to SSG. There were a number of stray passes and handling errors from both teams, Griffins were unable to capitalise on their opponents errors, 3rd quarter 27 - 15. Griffins didn’t let their heads go down and were fighting for everything. Jess worked tirelessly to contain SSG's WA. Laura (C) grafted throughout the court and linked well with Jo (WA) both successfully feeding the shooters Courtney (GA) and Phoebe (GS), .

With the constraints of having a bare 7 players, a new line up and experienced players missing, Griffins fought hard in a physical game.

Well done to Jess on her debut.

Result Griffins 23 - SSG 36
