Tough match for the ladies

Weston struggle to break through a tough Pinehurst defence and slip to defeat.

WESTON had one of its toughest games of the season against the Swindon based side, Pinehurst.

The game got off to a competitive start and for most of the first quarter it was goal for goal. However, the Pinehurst team proved that they were not going to make it easy for Weston and although the home side demonstrated some good netball, the Pinehurst team were unstoppable and proved too difficult for Weston to break down.

The Weston defence had a hard job due to the dynamic Pinehurst shooters and their level of accuracy. Jess Preece (GD) and Yvonne Pearson (GK) had their work cut out, but remained consistent making the most of every opportunity to turn the ball over, backed up by both Jennie Burton and Emily Fenner (WD).

The Weston attack welcomed back Kelly Redman in centre court who has been off with a knee injury, but unfortunately couldn’t break through the tough Swindon defence to try and claw back some goals.

Emma Bewick (WA) worked the ball well into the circle and Laura Bishop did well at GS with her quick dodges, losing the Pinehurst defence. The final score was 46- 27 to Pinehurst. Player of the match went to Ruth Lander (GA/C).
