Strong defence from Hannah, Ella and Chiara; good linking play from the middle trio of Helena, Lily and Louise and shooters Imogen, Emma and Rachael who all had an eye for goal. The great shooting combination of Rachael and Emma worked well and together they made some mature decisions about when to shoot and when to pass to the player in a better shooting position. They were fed skilfully by Lily, Louise and Imogen throughout all the matches with some quick passes which left the defenders standing. Constant interceptions by Helena at WD and Ella at GD stopped the opposition getting the ball into their half and amazing defensive play by Chiara and Hannah who, along with Ella, only let in 2 goals all tournament!!! 56 goals scored and 2 conceded! Exceptional skills shown up and down the court.
