Croydon 3 run riot over Trojans 3

Croydon 3 took on Trojans 3 at Trinity School with Pete Lindsey, Steph Robinson, Sarah Hole and Gary Heath (c) in attack with Paul Jeanes, Kathy Dean, Lynda Barker and Andy Burnham in defence.

After a couple of early exchanges, Heath beat his player, the Trojans defence switched leaving Lindsey free. Heath got him the ball via a round-the-back pass and Lindsey didn't miss. Heath was shortly on the 'sheet himself with one from middle distance. The other section followed this up with middle distance shots from Burnham and Dean, and when Heath rattled in a 5th and Lindsey stole in for a 6th, the sparse crowd were surely left wondering about the genius coaching from the sidelines as Croydon raced to a 0-6 lead!

Croydon continued to create great chances for the remainder of the half but somehow they contrived to miss them and these one-shot attacks gave Trojans more time to get themselves going and eventually Lindsey left his man a bit too open and Trojans got on the board. Half time: 1-6, a slightly disappointing return for the visitors given their dominance in the half.

Trojans came out the quickest after the restart and put away 2 quick goals but Lindsey used his trademark turn of pace (!) to beat his man for another runner and Jeanes, fed all game by Barker, finally put one of his running-in chances away to steady the ship at 3-8. Goals were exchanged by the teams at this point with Heath and Jeanes beating their men easily at times to leave the scores at 6-10. For some reason Trojans seemed to go into meltdown mode for a funny five minutes as some keystone cop passing was twinned with AWOL defending as the Croydon players were left to shoot, collect, shoot some more, all undefended. Somehow the visitors only managed to score one goal in this period through Heath before the hosts collected themselves.

As the half wore on, Hole had an experienced opponent to contend with but she still made the time and space for a lovely drop-off from the back of basket to bring the scores to 6-12. Trojans scored a couple more either side of a Jeanes penalty but by then Croydon were in cruise mode. Final score: 8-13.

All told, a comfortable win for a well prepared, energised and well drilled Croydon team. All too often the MVP is given to the game's top-scorer but here, the main scorers did as was expected of them and it was Sarah Hole who played above herself and competed well against a more seasoned pro.
