Great Britain continued their 100% start across both teams with another two victories on Sunday.
Great Britain’s Women’s team made a strong start to their campaign as they eased to an 86-16 win against France. Captain Robyn Love led the team from the front with 11 points over the game, with Great Britain’s number 9 Jude Hamer top scoring with 20 points.
At half time Great Britain had already established a 44-12 lead, settling any early nerves with a professional display that saw Jude Hamer enter the fray after quarter 1 and immediately show her quality, winning a foul and converting the second free throw herself.
The theme continued throughout, with Great Britain taking a huge 49 points off the bench. Strength in depth allowed the team to maintain quality throughout the game, the likes of 2.5 player Laurie Williams and Joy Haizelden impressing with tidy play and some excellent shots to round off the scoring in the final minute.
The second and last quarters were both shut outs, following extremely disciplined defensive play from Great Britain, determined not to give their opponents any chance of getting back into the game. Ruthless in defence but also in attack, as the team scored at least 20 points in each quarter and did not relent as France tired later in the game, with a final score of 86-16.
