Hatters U11s In Action with Coach Codona

Posted by:

Coach Betty Codona was back in action again today in Manchester but this time with the youngest team of the Hatters family, the U11s! The youngsters faced Bury in their first game and won it comfortably 24-18. The second game was a feistier affair with Tameside full court pressing our newbies who struggled to advance the ball under the pressure! Hatters showed much more determination in the second half and fought back 11-31 by the final whistle. The last game of the afternoon was against hosts Manchester Mystics which was a closely matched game where both teams traded basket for basket. Mystics managed a flurry of fast breaks in the last couple of minutes to gain a 4 point lead going into the stretch and although Hatters did have the opportunities to level the game they just didn’t convert in the end so lost 26-22. However despite the two losses Coach Codona was pleased with all the girls performances today. Although they lacked match experience in comparison to their competitors, they improved with every game and never stopped hustling throughout. The future certainly looks bright with this group of youngsters coming through the ranks! Players: Tess, Daisy, Marley, Favour, Crystal, Mia and Isobel
