Match reports 2019/20:

Frome Diamonds 30 TNC 30

The first quarter proved a challenge for Diamonds sponsored by Dennis Maps when TNC brought out their best team and play. With a determined effort by Diamonds, constantly getting interceptions in the D and some amazing shooting, although the TNC defenders were rather tall, the end of the first quarter saw Diamonds drawing 8 all.

The second quarter proved a lot harder and more straining on Diamonds, as TNC just came out that little bit stronger,  ending the quarter with a with a score of 16-13. As a team we were more determined than ever and brought it back to a rather tight 22-21, leaving the end of the 3rd quarter with only one goal in it!

With the biggest push by Diamonds ever, nail-biting match play happening and Diamonds coming out fighting. The score alternated between the two teams, and Diamonds led by two goals at one point. No one knew who would win!! Amazing shooting by Georgie Southwell  and Janie Bullus meant the TNC defence were put through their paces, whilst the Frome defence gave 100% effort.

e Diamonds 36 Devizes Kites 25

In the first match of the new season Diamonds, sponsored by Dennis Maps overcame Kites in a match that was close to start with but the third quarter saw them take the win when they overwhelmed Kites with some dazzling play. With a new pairing in defence, of Freya Applegate amd Rosie McMahon and offence Diamonds took a while to settle although Alice Baker and Janie Bullus combined well in the shooting circle with some short passes leading to easier shots on goal At the end of  the quarter they were ahead by just the one goal 9 8. Diamonds made some changes in defence bringing on Grace Barwell at GK and  Georgie Southwell at WD, both new to the team this year and both played their part in the match with Grace taking the Player's Player  award and Georgie the Captain's Pick.

Combining well down court Diamonds went ahead to lead by three, 17 14. In the third quarter Diamonds stepped up and Georgina Guy leading from the front, along with Bev Chapman rocketed ahead with fine shooting and some slick passing down court. Meg Young fed the ball decisively to the shooters and Diamonds scored 14 goals to Kites 7. Rosie McMahon, came back on for the last quarter and really gave it her all, along with Georgina defending and making telling passes down court. Georgina was voted Player of the Match and although the last quarter was low scoring Diamonds held on to the lead to take the win. A great start to the new season and thanks to Coach Jane and the members of Hearts who came to cheer them on.
