What a first game and it was league; the girls came out a little tentatively against Carey but played well enough for a 5–3 lead at half time. The girls took the second half by storm, 8–2 with the final score being a win 13–5.

Alison Abrams, Emily Durso, Lauren Dwyer and Sam DiPaola were key players. Selena Guastella won the majority of the centre draws in the second half allowing the team’s attack to set up and score.
