After a great match the previous month the London ladies were well motivated to come up against an opponent which had in previous years brought games which had gone down to the wire. Hampshire had lost a few players since last season but rumour had it they had added some tremendous talent to their squad making them a very strong side indeed.
The London ladies made a slightly rocky start, being slightly apprehensive of this New Hampshire side and what they could bring to the table. But we had one job to do and we were dedicated, we had just managed to win 6-5.
After some gained confidence in the second set the London ladies all got their heads down and played each frame shot by shot and made sure they secured those crucial frames that were needed. We had gone on to win the second set 8-3 making the score line 14-8.
Now pulling well ahead the third set only meant one thing which was to secure the game, we had won the first 5 frames in that set. The London ladies were on fire and it was great to witness! Game quality had never been better and we were completely focused and motivated. We came to win the third set 7-4 with a total of 21-12.
The last set saw pretty much the same as the third. Games were secured and the job was completed. The girls came together and acknowledge their performance as being one of the best which was much needed against this strong Hampshire side. Always a pleasure to play Hampshire but nothing could stop our girls on this day.
Tremendous game quality was witnesses with a feeling of great team spirit, the London ladies had finally come together and bonded like never before and this carried us all the way through this match to a victory.
Everyone is looking forward to our next challenge which will be Surrey at home
