Fiat Netball Superleague-Glasgow Wildcats vs Hertfordshire Mavericks

There’s a four point gap at the top of the FIAT Netball Superleague
after Hertfordshire Mavericks made it 7 wins from 8 beating Glasgow
Wildcats by 23-goals.

The table-toppers were using the match to give the squad a run out;
Karen Atkinson joined Maggie Jackson on the coaches bench; Louisa
Brownfield, Camilla Buchanan and Georgia Schmidt each played half of
the match.

While the possession was relatively evenly shared out, where it
counted in the shooting circle it was all Mavericks, they converted
84% of their 56 attempts, which explains the margin of victory.

Wildcats are making slow progress and still appear to be struggling to
boost the number of balls making it to their shooters, who are also
not finding the net often enough to keep their team in matches.  For
three-quarters of the game Glasgow were competing, but it’s a basic
requirement of netball, that to win you need to sink more goals than
the other team.

It was only in the final quarter that Mavericks really found their
stride, winning the 15 minutes 17-4 and that was good enough for the
head coach: “The last last quarter was the way we wanted to play,”
said Maggie Jackson.  “This was an error strewn game but there was
good work by our defenders and constant turnovers, which we  need to
capitalise on.”

And in relation to the changes she added “We’re always looking for
different leaders within the team, and today was an opportunity for
those to step up within each of the units.”

Denise Holland, head coach of the Glasgow Wildcats: “It was a solid
performance from the whole team defensively, against a strong
Mavericks side.  We were challenged by the Hertfordshire Mavericks
defence, however you can see the improvement from our young talent.”
