Match Reports

Frome Stars 55, Corsham1 23

A fantastic end to the Winter League for Frome Stars, coming away with a 32 goal lead.

Stars started the first quarter as they meant to go on with strong attack from Cox and Edwards. Edwards kick started the tight defence by gaining a turnover for Stars, followed by further great defence down court from Smith, Perry & K.Dredge. The team put the pressure on throughout which was showed by Corsham being called for holding the ball, resulting in a turnover for Stars. Defence was spot on this quarter with lots of man on man defending, attack started to slip towards to end trying to force to ball into the shooting D, however stars came away with a strong lead of 16-4.

The second quarter saw Corsham coming back with a fight, scoring a few goals early on, however stars managed to pick up their game by using the space well and great decision making for passes down the court. Stars used their team bond to get them through the second quarter with lots of supportive comments to each other which gave stars the boost they needed. Great passes into the shooters allowed Garton and Millard to convert to goals. Leading 29-16 after the second quarter.

For the third quarter stars made some changes to the team bringing on Noble at WD and H.Dredge at GA. Stars did not let the changes affect their brilliant place, in fact they increased their goal lead with some fabulous rotation in the shooting circle from Garton & H.Dredge. Centre court players Cox & Edwards picked up their game allowing the ball to flow smoothly down court and successfully making it to the shooters who were quick to turn these into goals. Great pressure and marking in defence from Noble, Perry & K.Dredge meant that Corsham were only able to score 5 goals this quarter. Ending 41-21.

When Stars thought it couldn’t get any better they entered the final quarter knowing this was their last game of the league and wanted to give it their all. This was quickly visible with new shooter Bullus on court who brought tons of energy with her, scoring lots of goals for the team. Spirits were lifting as the game was coming to an end with Stars knowing they were close to gaining the winning title. Our unstoppable team of Perry & K.Dredge in defence proved themselves once again this quarter only allowing Corsham to score 2 goals!!

Overall a fantastic performance from a great team! Stars have proved themselves this season, coming away with the winning title of the Premier Division.
