Blues vs Worcester 21/10/2015

In the Blues second match of the season, Cambridge got off to a rocky start falling two goals behind in the first quarter. Throughout the match Cambridge would gradually pull it back to equalize, but unfortunately Worcester were still leading by 2 as the final whistle blew at 36-38. The Blues were looking strong in defence, with Lucy, a new star in the Blues squad, starting as GK, Charlotte as GD, and Hayley as WD who was awarded Player of the Match. Charlotte and Hayley were a dazzling duo, and worked hard to break down the attacking play of the tall GA and the incredibly speedy WA. Tara came on as GK at half time, and dominated the circle making countless interceptions. Our sprinter of the team, Emily, who captained the Blues last season, started as C. Emma started as WA, Maddy as GA, and Frances new Blues Captain as GS. Maddy is an invaluable new addition to the Blues squad, who played for the Jays last season. A quick switch around in the second quarter saw Frances move into GA and Izzy come on as GS. Emily and Emma really nailed their circle edge drives and feeds, and the Cambridge attack worked well around the circle against some incredibly feisty Worcester defenders. Nicky came on as WA in the second half, and made some fantastic changes of direction and drives for the ball. This was an unfortunate loss for Cambridge, but wins are definitely on the horizon for this newly formed team!

Final score: 36-38 (loss)
