On Thursday 15th Launceston came to Tavistock to play the year 9 and 10 team for their second game of the session. After a disappointing start to the session the year 9 Tavistock team came on court determined to win and this continued throughout the 50 minute game, the girls managed to keep their lead throughout the game winning 13 – 11.
Herminone Shaw received player of the match.
The year 10 team were not so successful with a final score of 31 -11, this was mainly down to the exceptional shooters that Launceston produced and the Tavistock team not really playing cohesively until the second half when they scored most of their goals. Regardless of the score the girls learnt a lot from the game and still enjoyed it.
Jade Coupland received player of the match.

With 3 alterations in the Tavistock team, the girls kept their resolve and put the Plymstock team under a great amount of pressure, getting 2 goals back.

Well done to all of the girls who took part.
