Bentleigh 1s by Katherine Stanley (VC)
The 1s were excited for Round 1 and keen to kick start the season presenting a united front and show our opposition, Frankston, what a strong pre-season we’ve been working on!
Midcourt championed by Jade, Rika and Chiara gave us steady control of the game and helped to bring the ball down the court. Goalers Brianna and Jen worked tirelessly to secure rebounds and get in front of a tough opposition. A strong defence was executed by Charlotte, Hayley and Katherine and kept scoring opportunities low. We executed a solid first half with Bentleigh trailing by 5 goals at half time. Our communication was impressive, and we were proud to support each other on court. As a new team we are quickly learning how to adapt to how each other play and move on court. The game was competitive, and we feel confident going into the rest of the season. Unfortunately, the final score didn’t reflect the competitive nature of the game and Frankston came up with the win on the day. The 1s are looking forward to getting back to training this week and working on areas for improvement to implement in next week’s game! Final scores: Frankston 31 defeated Bentleigh 14 Coaches notes by Steph Clegg: Our ones came into the game off a great preseason, full of energy and confidence. Although we didn't come away with a win round one, there were many fantastic takeaways and positive signs to work with.
Unfortunately, the 2s had a bye the first round of the season. The team is working well together at training and are excited to take the court next week against Caulfield. Stay tuned!
