Ladies’ 1st SUWP Finals 03/12/2011

Having being knocked out of the trophy round, an unexpected dropout in the Plate round saw the ladies invited to take part in the SUWP finals in Cardiff, and managed to put together a super-keen team with just 24 hours notice.

The 1st match found Southampton Ladies facing Warwick. Due to the lack of notice we were given, the Southampton team was comprised of fewer 1st team players, with a couple of novices to the game. Unfortunately, it took this game, as a new team, to get into our stride and start communicating properly. Along with Warwick’s high standard of play, the score ended at 16:1 to Warwick.

The second match was against Bath. Our breaks were better and the confidence within the team to
take shots greatly improved and this was reflected in the number of goals scored. However, some stronger
swimmers in the Bath ladies were able to break off us and with our defence better, but tiring, the game ended 18:7 to Bath.

The third and final game was against Gloucestershire and with the girls hungry for a win, there was
only ever going to be one outcome! With one final push, the girls played a full press match and
countered back effectively. Keeping a clean sheet the game finished 17: 0 to Southampton.

Well played new players Kiri Pierce and Kate Setchell on their debute matches… we could not have done
it without you!
