Huskies Fall To unbeaten Pacers
Nov 28, 2009, 10:10 pm

With their rollercoaster season, the Weymouth Huskies have been riding high with convincing wins and punishing losses. Things looked difficult to change as they faced top of the table and undefeated Newton Abbot Pacers.


The game started well for the Huskies as they kept good pace with their guests even going 2 points up behind basket from forward Rosie Flaherty. Newton Abbot soon fired back and then with a cascade of Husky mistakes the Pacers raced ahead to close the opening period 6 – 18. things were not lost as the home side retooled themselves and went back to their early form pushing the pacers behind strong play by guard Ele Johnstone closing the half 33 – 15 behind.


The 3rd quarter was much like the 2nd, with Weymouth finding scoring opportunities but still allowing the veteran Pacer side remain ahead, increasing their lead. The home side refused to lie down and take defeat, instead fighting throughout and proving, though not on top of the league, they could still go with the best. As the game continued and the guests slowly added to the lead, Weymouth showed flashes of brilliance with outside shots from Flaherty and Remy Nurse. Both sides went back and forth, wit the competitive game finally ending 28 – 62.


Coach Alex Fuhrmann “was a good game overall. We certainly didn’t give them a very tough game, but we defiantly worked on some of our weaknesses, that I think we can learn from as a team. Their were moments when we played just as well as them, its just doing that for 40 minutes now.”


Roster/Scorers: Rosie Flaherty 8, Sarah James 4, Jayne Guppy 4, Jo Cox 3, Carly Dean 3, Nicole Cornish 2, Remy Nurse 2, Ele Johnstone 2, Rosie Moore, Sadie Osborne.

Pacers Keep One Step Ahead Of Peelers
Nov 24, 2009, 8:23 pm




DEVON PEELERS                           31



Despite Pacers taking a 6-0 lead at the start of the game, the fact that it took the visitors over six minutes to reach that position indicated the slow nature of the game, where neither team created enough space or moved the ball quick enough to create clear cut scoring opportunities. 


The Peelers, gaining confidence in their shooting after finally scoring in the seventh minute, put in a late run of points at the end of the period, but at the first break Pacers were just ahead at 10-8. From the start of the second period Pacers ball movement was much more effective generating gaps in the Peelers defence for Pacers to find scoring positions on a regular basis.  As a result, combined with a resolute defence which prevented Peelers from scoring, Pacers took control of the game to finish the half 26-8.


To drive home their advantage at the start of the second half, Pacers full court pressure created a number of turnovers which were converted into points and they were soon 39-10 ahead.  A slower second phase of the period saw a more even contest as Pacers reached the third break 45-14.

A positive start by Pacers at the beginning of the final period with quick ball movement up court saw their lead extended to 54-16, then the nature of the game change. 


In the final five minutes of the game, as Pacers lost all composure on court, Peelers scored as many points in those final minutes as they had all game finishing the game 60-31 down.

Despite the large points difference between the two teams for most of the game, it never felt a comfortable win for Pacers as the Peelers battled to the last.

Exeter showed no sign of weakness as the game began, with co-captain Tamara Quran racking up the first points with a impressive three pointer. This strong form continued as Exeter’s tight defence restricted the Huskies to just three baskets in the first quarter, to take a 17-6 lead.


Exeter continued to build a considerable lead in the second quarter, adding another 27 points to the total, with another timid response by the Huskies, who only managed to add three more baskets.

Exeter University 65 Exeter Police 69


Exeter looked to capitalise on an impressive start to the season as they hosted their first visitors of the season, and prepared for a tough battle against the Police, who had already proved their worth by defeating the hosts in a pre-season friendly.


Slow starting, the University trailed in the first quarter 18-25, and were punished by numerous fast breaks from the Police, leaving the University vulnerable in the defence.  Despite their efforts, the University finished the second quarter trailing by 17 points, setting up an uphill battle for the remainder of the match.


The University showed impressive fight and character after the half time break, racking up 22 points, and built a resistant defence to restrict the Police to only 14 points. Point guard Becki O’ Shea led the response by scoring the first three baskets, whilst Captain Helena Edmonds and Georgia Perrine fought hard in defence to prevent the Police increasing their lead.


With all to play for in the final quarter, and only five points between the two sides, Exeter continued to fight, narrowing the gap with co-captain Tamara Quran and Nora Duffner making valuable three point baskets. However the Police held their form and managed to add 10 more points to their total, leaving with a win.


It concluded in an unfortunate result for the University, after dominating the second half, and missing out on a winning result by only five points.

Huskies Win Again



Wednesday 11th November saw Weymouth Huskies host a depleted Devon Peelers team, in the Exeter District league womens division.  Being low on players didn't stop the visitors making life difficult for the Huskies. With only 5 players to call on, Devon took the lead early converting their first two offenses into points, while the Huskies struggled to break through the strong Devon defense. It was down to Sarah James and Rosie Flaherty to provide the points for the Huskies, combining to make 6pts in the first quarter which could have been 11, but unfortunately poor shooting from the foul line meant the quater ended 13 - 6 in favour of the Peelers.  


The second quarter was very much the same story as the first. The Peelers were moving the ball well and created easy points.  The Huskies however continued to fight with the strong Devon defense. They were only kept in the game with some good shooting from Rosie Moore, and high intensity on the offensive and defensive end by Huskies captain Jo Cox.  Then in the 4th minute of the second quarter the Peelers turned up the pressure.  With a series of turnovers by the Huskies, turned into easy fastbreak points by the quick devon guards, the visitors began to pull away and the first half ended 29 - 16. The Huskies had a lot of work to do if they wanted to be in with a chance of winning this game.  


The home side changed to a zone defence for the second half and picked up the pressure, this helped to kick start the offence as well.  Four points from Huskies Jayne Guppy and four from Jo Cox were added to baskets by Sarah James and Reme Nurse, narrowing Devons lead to 5pts. At the turn of the quarter the Weymouth side were well and truely back in the game.  


The visitors were the first onto the score board in the fourth, extending their lead back to 7pts. The Huskies then picked up their defense, stopping the Peelers and scoring 3 times at the other end.  Suddenly with 6 unanswered points for Weymouth, it was a 1pt ball game.  The Huskies were then dealt a crippling blow when they lost defensive stalwart Jo cox. Some aggressive rebounding resulting in a clash of heads left her injured with a dislocated jaw and out for the rest of the game. This could prove crucial to Weymouth in the dying minutes.  Play continued with both teams claiming a basket each. With the score line reading 37 - 36 in favor of the Peelers, there was just under a minute left in the game and the visitors had possession of the ball.  Devon brought the ball up court and as expected they used up a large portion of the time left, settling for a 10ft jumpshot with the shot clock running down. The shot fell short and out of bounds under massive pressure from the Huskies defense.  With 17 seconds left to play and 1pt in it coach Che Osborne immediately called a timeout. It was time to go over a set play the team had been working on in practice to try to take the game.  The Huskies came back onto court with a big lineup hoping to control any rebounding situations, giving themselves the best chance possible of scoring the 2pts they needed.  The ball was passed into the capable hands of point guard Sarah James and the play was initiated. With the clock counting down and 12 seconds left, James drove straight through the heart of the Devon defense to the basket, scoring 2pts and sealing the victory for the Huskies in the dying seconds.  With 4 seconds left on the clock the visitors did not have enough time to comeback with anything of their own, which gave the Huskies the game 38 - 37.   Coach Osborne Said " It was a tough game and there was times when I thought Devon were going to run away with it, but the girls did well to hang in there and take the game. In the last few minutes the Peelers put them under a lot of pressure and they dealt with it well".


That win takes the Huskies record to 3 -1 and takes them into Wednesdays home game against league leaders Newton Abbot on a high.  The game will be played at Weymouth College. Tip off is at 8:30pm spectators welcome.
