Woking Ladies get back to winning ways
Away to Farnborough Phantoms, Thursday 17th November
Following two straight losses, the Blackhawk ladies were keen to come away with the win. And it was Woking who came out strong in the first quarter, making the most of each offensive opportunity to put some points on the board. The points quickly added up and Woking finished the quarter at an impressive 17–3.
But Farnborough certainly weren’t out of the game just yet. Woking appeared to take their foot off the pedal going into the second quarter allowing Farnborough 12 straight unanswered points to bring the score to 17–15. Coach Annabelle Hardiman made a few substitutions to bring the intensity back to where it had been and make sure Woking held on to the lead going into the half-time break.
Both teams stepped up in the second half. Woking’s strong man-to-man pressure made it difficult for Farnborough at the offensive end, although a few determined Phantom ladies still found ways to penetrate into the key. At the offensive end, the Blackhawk ladies put on a great team performance against the zone, getting points from inside and outside of the key. Woking kept a hold of their lead throughout the second half and managed to edge away towards the end of the fourth quarter to seal the victory 63–56.
Ladies make a winning start
Away to Chiltern Fusion, Sunday 25th September
There was a mixture of nerves and excitement as the first game of the season got underway for the Woking Blackhawks Ladies team. The Blackhawks knew it would be a tough game, with three of their eight players joining the Woking team this season, and facing them Chiltern Fusion, winners of the 2015-16 season. Undeterred the ladies took to the court with ambition and drive, played as a unit on defence and finished the first quarter ahead at 10-6.
Ladies hold on in a tight finish
Home to Winchester City Royal, Wednesday 5th October
Woking Blackhawks took an early lead in the start of the first quarter, forcing Winchester to take an unexpected time-out within the first few minutes of the game. Woking however, continued to dominate at both ends of the court throughout much of the first half.
The ladies worked hard on defence, pressurising the ball and limiting passing options into the key where most of Winchester’s threat came from. This led to a succession of turnovers which Woking turned into fast break opportunities where possible. The team maintained great composure however, when the fast break was not an option, and were patient through their offensive motion to find the best scoring opportunities.
Aztec too good
Home to Aztec Storm, Wednesday 23rd March, Lost 62-34
Another small team of 6, mostly injury and illness free, battled hard against one of the league's top teams, Aztec Storm. Having played Aztecs twice before, the Blackhawk ladies knew the threat that was in front of them and began the game with solid defensive performance, limiting Aztec's scoring capabilities. Down the other end, Woking took some good opportunities and it was Aztecs who started on the back foot, with Woking up 8-6 mid-way through the first quarter. Aztecs rallied back however, making the most of their height advantage on defence to end the quarter 15-8.
