Meteors on learning curve

METEORS A1 Women’s coach Roy Smith said yesterday’s game was a good contest between the two teams, but in the end Souths were too strong and ran out 3-1 winners.

“Meteors are working on reducing their errors and display better teamwork,” Smith said.

Leading the way in this department were Kirsty Rach and Tahnee Jenkinson.

“Meteors were able to create opportunities but found it difficult to convert,” Smith said.

The best of the offensive line-up were Adelaide Lodder and Hayley Barnett.

Meteors are a new and young team in 2010 but are starting to make some progress.

“They are starting to gain confidence and are on a continual learning curve. We recognise that and are working very hard on it,” Smith said.
