Match Report - 12 Jan 2013, Actonians Netball Club A Team beat Grasshoppers A
G’hoppers relied on getting the ball to their tall GA and GS near the post, and Zoe and Kath did a good job, especially in the 2nd half, of slowing down and thwarting their efforts.
There were opportunities to turn the ball over both at centre passes when there was a lot of pressure on their WA to receive and also down the court. The 2nd quarter score reflects some slacking off of chasing up loose balls down the court, which was much improved in the 2nd half.
Zoning was tried with a degree of success in the 2nd quarter – the team can still grow in confidence though on when to call this (and when to call man-on later on).
Final point to note is that there was a lot of footwork infringement, particularly through late take off – reducing this would give us even more opportunities to attack.
Overall a good team effort, everyone played their part and worked hard to extend the goal difference from the last meeting of the 2 teams.
