Tiffin A weathered the storms last Saturday to pull through with a win against Hillcrest A.
An uncharacteristically shaky start for Tiffin A on Saturday, 9th November, who trailed at end of quarter one (Q1) 10-12 despite some moments of glorious play with interceptions from Sophie M and Tori down the court. The fight back was on in Q2. Tiffin dug deep and, after great shooting from Emma and Emily, came back to win the quarter by 9 leaving Tiffin in the lead at half time(25-18). The poor conditions worsened during the match with the killer combination of cold and pouring rain leading to dropped balls from both teams. Tiffin continued to dominate in the third quarter with perfectly timed feeds to the circle from Trudy and Laura. The teams determination and focus kept them in the lead – winning Q3 by 3. By the fourth quarter the defence started capitalising on the pressure they were putting on the oppositions GS which helped maintain the lead built in the middle quarters. In the end, the biting cold was not enough to break the team spirit, and the match concluded with another WIN 47-37. Thanks to all those wonderful supporter who came down – and probably had to spend a few hours drying/thawing out on Saturday afternoon!
