Round 2 – 5th April 2014
Glencoe 37 drew with Mount Burr 37
In wet and slippery conditions, nothing could separate Mount Burr and Glencoe who drew on 37 goals apiece.
Glencoe started off strongly with a clean intercept by Bec Wilson allowing them to score the first two goals of the game. In Mount Burr’s first hit out of the season, Ebony Clark took time to find her shooting range and Glencoe were able to capitalise early on a number of missed scoring opportunities. However, Mount Burr steadied late in the term and were able to bring the margin back to only one at quarter time.
The second quarter was an even one. Mount Burr goalies, Clark and Hayley Agnew, worked exceptionally well together in the ring, creating a number of passing opportunities between each other and missing only 1 shot for the quarter. Scores were locked at 19 goals apiece at half time.
Glencoe came back firing after the break with the defensive unit of Wilson, Donna Jaeschke and Ebony McDiarmid taking a number of intercepts down the court. The attack end became more settled. Kelly Aubert started to find her range in the goal circle and Ashlea Edwards was dominating the centre corridor. Glencoe were able to take a six goal lead into the final term.
However, the tides turned in the final quarter, with Mount Burr keen to claw back the deficit. Mount Burr had great support on and off the court. Their defenders in Megan Thiele and Heidi Clark both played wonderful games forcing their opposition to stay behind them and to move horizontally and the two of them were the catalyst for many turnovers in the final term with exceptional reach.
A contact call made after the final whistle allowed Clark to seal a draw for her side and she finished with accuracy under pressure.
Best players for Mount Burr were Ebony Clark and Megan Thiele while Glencoe was best served by Bec Wilson and Ashlea Edwards.
