Socials played Tonbridge 2. Great friendly match but Took a quarter for us to warm up. Amy Howell and eryn salako (u14s) played half and last quarter very well - slotted in a treat having just played for the 2nds.
We Just allowed Tonbridge to get a point with final score 44-22. Second in table behind Xs and hoping to gain promotion to Div 2
Wealden green vs Langton 24 – 26
Slow start for wealden going down by 6 goals in the first quarter. Strong second quarter from all the girls and we finish the quarter level. Sophie and Erin making it extremely difficult for Langton in the shooting circle. All level at the end of third quarter after we pulled away by 4 during the quarter. Mia creating great space as centre. Everyone looking tried during the 4th quarter some poor passing and less movement we loss by 2
Pom Charlotte watts always a safe pair of hands.

Wealden black vs jets 1 13 – 22
Strong start from attack and we finish level at half time. Third quarter we struggle to feed the shooters and jets take a 7 goal lead. Lack of changing direction and not chasing lose ball we can't reduce the goal difference. Far to many held ball calls
Pom Lillie harley. Great support all game.

WEALDEN RED V CD PHOENIX VIOLET 13 - 29
This was always going to be a fierecly contested game and we were warmed up ready for some sharp action. The opening quarter saw Wealden come out on fire and quickly pulled the game ahead finishing 7 - 4 up. But Phoenix weren't having any of that tightened up their defence strategy, pinned us down with close man on man marking and we ended at half time on an 8 - 8 draw. We needed to practise our training tactics and bring the ball out from the defense but we lost our focus in the third quarter and with a number of held ball calls and were punished as Phoenix notched up another 4 goals. The final quarter saw us beaten losing 5 goals to 2 and the end result giving CD Phoenix the win 17 -11. Much better than first time round though when we lost 29 - 13 this time we pick up the extra point for getting more than half.

WEALDEN AMBER V HALSTEAD LIONS 5 - 2
Despite being down to 7 players and missing Captain Kayla Brown the Amber team were ready to show Halstead just what they're made of. Lead by Bea Cheverton as Captain with Phoebe Norman stepping in as Vice-Captain the team got off to a fantastic start with Leonie Fernandez sinking 3 goals in the first quarter to take the lead 3 - 0. Grace Kohler showed how much she'd listened and worked at training keeping tight on to her player and turning the ball over time and again. As usual we struggled to convert our turn over opportunities into goals and finished the second quarter without one successful shot. But Emily Ball came on as GS in the third quarter and showed us how it was done moving the score up to 4 and whilst Halstead managed to get one in Millie Mercer kept the GA under tight control forcing a held ball call in our favour. In the final quarter Gracie MacAuley wasn't letting anything past her either and turned the ball over repeatedly which was rewarded with one more successful shot from Leonie to secure the win 5 - 2. Special mention for Bea and Phoebe for their superb shoulder passing, well done girls.
