Romford C put up a brave fight against Foxes in their Essex Met League Division Three meeting.

With some regular players absent, they called up others from the D team and went into the match with an upbeat attitude.

The first quarter began at a quick pace, with tight marking and a high level of energy shown from both sides.

Strong and accurate passes from Romford carried the ball down smoothly to Casey Caldenk and Jemma Higgins, who were dominating the circle with help from Caoimhe Brady and Lisa Brightman, who were feeding in with clear accuracy.

Romford trailed 10-9 at the first break but the defence upped their game as Skylar Brady gained two turnovers in a matter of minutes and sent it straight down to the attacking end to set up another goal.

Chez Towey and Karen Hearn were both dictating the circle, holding out their opposite numbers and getting numerous tips as a result.

But Romford were 28-15 down at half time and the team made changes for the second half to try and improve their position.

Skylar Brady joined Caldenk in the attacking end and they worked well together to lead to an increase in scoring.

Higgins gained good rebounds at goalkeeper and launched attacks with help from Hearn and Towey, as Brightman continued to drive forward for every ball.

And despite being 40-25 behind at the final break, Romford continued to fight, with Hearn providing plenty of motivation.

Higgins directed play well, with Towey making two interceptions to find Caoimhe Brady, who sent the ball on to Skylar Brady and Caldenk, who remained fully in the game until the finish as it ended 55-32 to Foxes.
