Storm were back on the road for the latest round of matches in the South West League 3 (South) and another trip to Somerset.

This time to the home of Sydenham Gems.

It was the third away trip in the opening four games of the season but the Cornish side didn’t let that worry them and came away with another 5 points.

Caitlyn Oates sets to shoot against Gems

Head Coach David White switched up the defence for the starting line up with Maia Adams partnering Kirstin Lamb in the circle and Niamh Symons on the Wing.

Phoebe Lagor started at Centre, Beth Fenn on the Wing and Hannah Cox and Caitlyn Oates continued their pairing in the shooting circle.

It was a tense first period with Gems sneaking ahead 6-4 before Storm but two runs together to take the quarter 12-9.

Symons and Adams switched places for the second period to try and cut down the feeds into a tall home shooting circle and it seemed to work with Storm taking the second period 17-8 to lead 29-17 at half time.

Phoebe Lagor looks to pass during the win at Gems

Fern Noott replaced Bethany Fenn at Wing Attack for the third quarter as Storm looked to extended the lead.

The period started goal for goal before Storm took control in the last few minutes to win it 17-13.

The final quarter was closer although a five goal run right at the end saw Storm hit the 60 mark and take the game by 20 goals.

“It was a solid performance,” said White. “We certainly weren’t as good throughout the whole as I’ve seen us in some matches this season but there were spells where we put some great play together and the girls can be really pleased with a good victory against a tough side to play.”

Hannah Cox takes a shot in the win at Gems

Captain and Goal Attack Hannah Cox was delighted with the result; “We knew it would be a tough match,” she said. “We were really pleased with our through court attack, we drove the ball down really well.”
