Great boost for Herefordshire girls basketball with ROAR win over Bristol Flyers.
With only 5 girls playing in the Glozball tournament including 2 x 9 year olds, ROAR followed up the very comfortable win over Gloucester Saxons with a nail biter over a much better Bristol Flyers squad.
Although inexperienced, the Flyers girls are well coached in a real performance structure and so prepared perfectly for the tournament. It showed through the day. The flyers girls performance suggest good things are to come from this team.
Flyers led at the half 10 – 6. It took all that ROAR had within them to come back into the game.
Boudicca Biggs led the team in scoring but with the team all performing like heroes it was Erica with the steal and 9yr old Evie that sealed the win in the last minute with the score.
Fantastic basketball effort from Flyers but the Herefordshire girls just made it across the line in the closest game of the day.
