Before talking about this weekend I would like to thank all the supporters who made the trip to Nottingham last weekend. We were all rewarded with a fantastic game (probably the best of this WBBL season) which Hatters eventually won 86-85 in overtime. The fans made a lot of noise throughout the game and it was fantastic that our supporters were at least as vocal as theirs. Their energy and enthusiasm certainly helped the team to maintain their efforts throughout the game even when things weren’t going quite the way we would like!
This weekend the WBBL playoffs begin. Despite their win last week Hatters finished 3rd in the league and so will have a tough quarter final vs Leicester Riders. The game tips at 3.00pm on Saturday @ All Saints. For the losers the season will be over but the winners will proceed to the Semi Finals next weekend where they will face the winners of Sunday’s game between Northumbria and Cardiff. The QF is Hatters last home game of the season so it would be great to have support like we had last week and hopefully the team will take the win and join our U16s and U18s in the SFs next weekend.
