Our girls did not return from the break in their best form. While we were up for the challenge presented by the Grade 7 & 8 touch team, our fitness did not support our cause. The Grade 7 & 8 team struck first in the first quarter after repeated sets of touches on our scoreline. They were able to move the ball to the fringes and convert the pressure into points.
The JV team spent a lot of time at the Grade 7 & 8 scoreline, but could not turn possession into valuable points. It was a back-and-forth affair for the second and third quarter with both teams guilty of losing possession by not doing the basics properly. In the fourth quarter, the JV girls refocused their attack and drove fast, straight, and tight. This caught the Grade 7 & 8 team off-side and the JV team were able to score in the following possession. However, the score remained 1-1 at the full time whistle as neither team could break through each other's scoreline.
A big thank-you to the Grade 7 & 8 touch team and their coaches for the opportunity to play weekly.
