Round 4: Hertfordshire Mavericks V Yorkshire Jets

Hertfordshire Mavericks 51 Yorkshire Jets 38

 

After another long journey up to Leeds Mavericks expected a tough match from Yorkshire Jets who were looking for their first win of the season.  Mavericks had a slow start and lacked a little bit of discipline allowing Jets to edge the first quarter 13 to 10.

A solid second quarter performance, saw the defence connect well with the attack enabling Mavericks to take the lead 23-22.

The half time talk focused on taking control and taking personal responsibility for errors.  The players responded well with some fantastic shooting by Wallace and Fisher enabling Mavericks to stretch the lead to 36-31.

 The fourth quarter saw Mavericks finally show some of their best netball with the ball coming from the back through court to the shooters beautifully.  Mavericks proved they were just too strong for the Jets side to handle taking a convincing win 51-38.

Coach Sam Bird had this to say: “I am definitely pleased to have won 4 from 4 giving us a good platform for the tougher matches to come next week.  If we can produce our best play more frequently, we will be a force to be reckoned with.”
