Winscombe Ladies put in an outstanding display against Totnes, despite slipping to defeat.

Totnes Ladies 37 pts

Winscombe Ladies 14 pts

Winscombe Ladies took the bare 15 players away to Totnes and gave a good performance despite losing.

In a hard-fought first half, the Warriors held their own against a well-drilled and experienced Totnes team.

Never lacking in energy and effort, the tackle count was high, some big hits disrupted Totnes’s attack time and time again. Going in at half time marginally behind was a great achievement, but the hard ground was starting to take a toll.

Unfortunately girls from both sides were subject to injuries and knocks and gradually this began to tell on the Warriors. Nevertheless they continued to work hard and never gave up.

Congratulations to player if the match Elizabeth Kearns and Jess for their scores and best wishes to Millie for a speedy recovery, while Olivia Ball was praised for her performance and leadership on and off the pitch.

Captain Olivia Ball said: “The ladies performance was outstanding and the effort that was put in right to the end was exceptional. Compared to last week we were like a completely different team in defence, running up and hitting hard and low as a team phase after phase”
