Abbey-licious victorious over local rivals Wells

Abbey took on local rivals Swan today in rather damp and drizzly conditions. A strong start for Abbey resulted in an early first quarter lead of 12-5 this was due to some great defensive pressure from Ruth Lomas and Tamzyn Chidley resulting in numerous turnovers. This play continued into the second quarter with Kelly-marie Simpson and Claire Dickens dominating the circle and converting on the turnovers with extremely accurate shooting. Half time score Abbey still leading 22-14. The defence were trying to block Claire and her shit hot shooting out of the circle so Claire and Kelly switched shooting positions within the circle at half time. This created more space on court as Claire was being doubled on in the circle. Sam Doble, myself and Jordan Davies worked really well to bring the ball up court with a lot less pressure on us and some great feeds into the circle resulted in the final score of 42-34. Player of the match from both teams went to Claire Dickens who was on fire! Well played everyone. Let’s all go down to VicFest and celebrate our win xx
