Hucclecote B slipped to a narrow defeat after winning the last quarter in a really determined fight back in the final 15 minutes.
This new look squad played some super netball, bringing the ball through court with speed, but all too often an error proved to be costly with The Pinehurst shooters on form netting 36 from 49 attempts.
The defence trio of first half Fliss Phillips, then 2nd half Lucy Werrell, Hayley Neate & Kayleigh Garbutt Roberts worked hard to curtail the accuracy of the opposition shooters. During the final quarter, they finally forced them into making errors, restricting them to converting only 6 out of 11.
At the other end Shooters Polly Banyard & Millie Price stepped up scoring 10 in the final quarter to close the gap & secure the extra point.
Squad; Pollyanna Banyard, Millie Price, Kate Nicholls, Fliss Phillips, Lucy Werrell, Harriet Pratten ( capt) Hayley Neate & Kayleigh Garbutt Roberts.
