Solent 1 61, Solent 3 32
SUNDAY’S derby match between Solent’s first and third teams went with the form book — although the club’s top side were pushed all the way.
It took until the second half for league leaders Solent 1 to pull away, a 12-goal handicap holding them to 19-19 at the break, with Solent 3’s Rachel Lawrence producing some excellent shots.
However, the experience of Solent 1 shone through in the end, and they pulled away for a comfortable victory.
Solent 1: White, M. Booth, Cowley, Marshall, Grimes, Ross, Siska. Solent 3: Price, Woodmore, McVicar, Seaman, Diggins, Lawrence, Fielder. Sub: Gilham.
Shorwell 1 72, Gurnard 2 20
Shorwell showed their experience and composure under plenty of pressure from Gurnard 2 to post a huge win on Sunday.
The scoreline probably did not reflect the hard work put in by Gurnard, who were unfazed by Shorwell’s star players.
The goal scoring was led by GS Beth Griffin, who did not miss all game.
Solent 2 46, Dodgems 29
Players from Solent 3 made the step up to the second team for their game against Dodgems, and did an excellent job.
Dodgems, who spent some of the game with six players because of an injury, made a great start, with excellent shooting from Jacey Abram.
Solent held a narrow lead at half time, which they extended in the final two quarters, after Solent moved Jess Cleary to GA, and Rachel Lawrence to GS.
They both produced some excellent shots, some from the edge of the circle, to score vital points.
Solent 2: White, Woodmore, Fielder, Furmidge, C-L Booth, Cleary, Lawrence.
