Q1   7- 5 (7-5); Q2 10-13  (3-8) ; Q3 19-23  (9-10) ; Q4 28-31  (9-8)

On Sunday 12th November Yeovil’s under 14 regional team travelled to Blandford Forum to play their first regional league match against North Dorset.

Yeovil started strong, playing well as a team and ended the first quarter ahead at 7-5.

Unfortunately, North Dorset came out really strong in the second quarter, some changes to their shooting team and strong defensive play saw them score 8 goals compared to Yeovil’s 3 putting them ahead at half time with a 10-13 scoreline.

Yeovil battled hard in the third quarter with some great interceptions but sadly not always managing to take full advantage and move the ball through center court and into the shooting circle, the quarter was evenly matched ending 19-23 with North Dorset still ahead.

Yeovil came out fighting in the last quarter, really upping their game with some fantastic play, reducing North Dorset’s lead but unfortunately North Dorset hung on to win with a final score 28-31.If only the 2nd quarter had been like the last!

Yeovil played really well today. There was some fantastic play, great shooting and interceptions. It was just unlucky that they did not always take full advantage of their hard work – some things to work on but a great start to the regional league.  Well done girls!
