Great win for the ROAR Girls Basketball against home team Gloucester Saxons. With only 5 girls available, Bishops of Hereford girls Boudicca, Erica and Sophia were joined by 9 year old members of the junior programme from Fownhope Primary School, Jasmine and Evie as the youngest players in the tournament.
The 5 Herefordshire girls had some pressure as it was the first game for Saxons in the all new girls basketball central venue league, they had a large squad of players and so there was a large crowd of friends and parents backing the home team.
Great to see the girls deal with the pressure and within 5 minutes of the start, take control of the game. They continued through the second half with strong pressure defence limiting the Saxons to only 2 second half scores.
Great performance from ROAR girls landing a big win to start the day.
As another young squad certainly Saxons girls too will continue to develop and improve, building on the experience of the CVL.
