WASTSIDE 38 NESS HOTSHOTS 45

The first quarter was closely contested, with Wastside being the stronger of the two teams, with good linking work from midcourt Julie Crossan, Mhairi Drozdowska and Bronwyn Walterson to reach shooters Jodie Walterson and Isla Moffat. The hotshots defence of Melody Goodlad and Isabel Beswick was making a strong effort, but Wastside continued on to lead by only 1 goal, 10-9 The second quarter saw goal for goal play, with the hotshots shooters Megan Nicolson and Kira Eldridge finding their feet, and settling into play well. Wastside maintained their one goal advantage with the second quarter ending 25 – 24 Ness hotshots were playing well in the third quarter, with Wastside slipping. Good linking work from midcourt of Sophie Morris, Ruth Morris and Molly Nicolson were feeding well into shooters, who were now rarely missing. Hotshots pulled the score back to an even 31 – 31 The last quarter saw the hotshots playing very well, with excellent shooting, and as much as Wastside tried, they couldn’t hold on. Hotshots controlled the last quarter, and so showed the score. The game ended 45 – 38 Players of the match were Kira Eldridge for Ness Hotshots and Jodie Walterson for Wastside
