Being Div 2’s first game of the new year, the game started off slowly with Div 2 allowing the opposition to gain several baskets in advance. Fortunately, Hatters picked up the pace and were able to gain a lead in the first quarter. During the second quarter, Div 2 were clearly more ambitious and played more energetically (which was evident in their defence) than when they had initially started which meant the opposition only scored one basket whilst hatters scored 17! The first half ended 31-13.
The third quarter was somewhat a repetition of the first quarter but Hatters were able to reduce the amount of baskets made by Spinners greatly with many steals being made and tight defense on several occasions. The fourth quarter was similar, with traps being attempted and the struggle to mark the post players had almost been completely eradicated. Great game from the girls with the score ending at 66-38.
