Game three-(3) Vs Warrandyte 3 at Charles Latrobe College – The first three-(3) weeks from a training perspective have been a little nightmarish given the disruption of training venues and the like, but today we saw a good reflection of what will be with this team of girls. The girls were on today (offensively) as they started to settle in to our offensive structure involving point coverage – outlet swing and post play passing. Crisp passing and great teamwork/team talk were the highlights for me, with all the girls contributing well  as the Knights chalked up our first win for the summer season – well played girls!

 

Special mentions – all

 

  • Alice (Robbo) Robertson continued building on her solid performance last week and was one of our key pressure players today – Well played today Robbo – your defensive efforts/pressure are team leading and very valuable to the team.
  • Nicola and Felicity were instrumental in offensive thrusts – girls your drive and clearances today were first class. Nicola was superb as our centre-post  option and the girls had no issue feeding her in the hot spot – well played girls!
  • Nemo and Ruby are showing  a level of defensive commitment that is really valuable to the team – girls you are not only holding your spot in this side but owning it – keep the enthusiasm levels high and well done.
  • Alice Doyle continued on with her consistency as she helped control our point guard setup – great work today Alice your selfless efforts don’t go unnoticed.
  • Lexi was subbed out late in the game when she twisted her ankle and up until that time was playing a good defensive orientated game working well within the team structures – well played Lexi
  • Mia was solid all over the court today as she returned from her illness last week  – good solid game today Mia keep working on your game!

 

Onto training – let’s have a full turn out this Wednesday so we can all work on the team plan and our individual games, I am hoping to have a visitor to training this week who will focus on post play and set play shooting moves.
