Wednesday saw the arrival of local rivals Chichester College at Worthing College for the Hampshire league fixtures. Unfortunately Chichester were only able to field one team despite the size of the college and from the results in the league their first team has been struggling.
Worthing were without a number of players due to injury, so Morgan Barnard made her starting debut in the first team at WD, with Katie L moving to C. The shooting pair of Abby Lane and Lana Byrnes remained along with the defensive pairing of Shannon Brightman and Amelia Smith. WA was Katherine Heater.
Worthing started well going into an early 5-1, however Chichester came back and Worthing were only two ahead at quarter time. 9-7. Our movement onto the ball was poor and the only player really working hard was Shannon Brightman. Discussions were had a quarter time and an improvement was seen. After this there was only one team in it, passing improvement, shooting improved, interceptions increased.
The final score was 50-10 – a very one sided game after the first quarter.
