What a practice match!

Following a school practice v the senior squad in which the girls worked on providing options and having control with the ball, the U16 SnS squad headed over to Castle Leisure Centre to take on a junior YWCA Bury Elite squad as s final preparation for their National Semi Final on Wednesday.

A few early missed shots put them on the back foot, but the team remained composed and patient and worked hard to win the ball back to create more shooting opportunities.

Some excellent passages of play from the centre pass cemented attacking options and gave the team confidence to release the ball with speed. The team shot from long range, which whilst successful they need to work on getting the ball closer to the post to challenge the defenders.

Lucy B and Rebecca Jones made some key intercepts at crucial points in the game to keep BGS ahead and Beth W led from defence bringing the ball down court with speed and accuracy.

A great whole squad effort- We are feeling ready for Wednesday and looking forward for what will be a physical and well contested match.
