Double Win as Sabina Celebrates 40th Anniversary

Posted by Rachel Evans on 16 November 2022


On Saturday, our 1sts and 2nds took to court to show off their skills in north-west Kent league.

First up were our lovely 2nds who were facing OBA 2. We got off to a flying start on a chilly morning, with some calm, collected, clinical passages of play. Taking every opportunity we could, we intercepted many of OBA’s passes and converted them to goal. Starting as we meant to go on, at the end of the first half, the score stood at 33-14 to us. In the third quarter, we really pulled together and demonstrated a true championship quarter as we tightened up even more in defence, making interception after interception throughout court and collecting rebounds, we allowed only 4 goals in for OBA. The third quarter ended on 49-18. OBA came back and fought hard to level to half our score to secure a point, but it was too late. The final score was a superb 64-23 meaning that we prevented OBA from gaining a point. What a result! Roxanne secured herself another player of the match accolade as she smashed it as GA, making some lovely drives into the circle and shooting those all-important goals that helped secure a fantastic win – congratulations Rox! 🎊

Next up was the 1st who took on Hornets 1. The game was closely contested throughout as each team took almost all their own centre passes through to goal with slick transitions through court. There was little room for error, one dropped ball or inaccurate pass would result in a goal conceded for the other team. After some well fought work in defence, we turned over a few of Hornets centre passes, resulting in the first quarter ending on a score of 11-8 to us. In the second quarter, Hornets came back with more fight, causing some forced errors and quickly turning over ball to goal. The score at half time now stood at 22-23 to Hornets. We weren’t going to let this happen. We adapted our play to cut down the opposition smartly and clinically to cause wayward balls and create turnovers. Driving for the ball to create options and take our time, we only allowed Hornets to score 5 goals, while we scored 13 in the third quarter. The final quarter was evenly matched, once again going goal for goal and making am equal number of turnovers. The match concluded with a score of 48-40 to us! Player of the match went to Rachel, who played as Centre for the entire game and managed to get a few cheeky interceptions while she was at it! 🎉

A successful day at the office as we secure a double win, on the day that we celebrated our 40th Anniversary! What a super Saturday! ❤️🖤
