Great Britain’s Women’s team made it two wins out of two with another impressive performance against Turkey, the game finishing 12-78 to Great Britain.
Cardiff Met Archers player Jade Atkin put in an outstanding performance, racking up 20 points in just under 15 minutes of game time. It was a blistering start to the game, Great Britain ending the first quarter with a 2-21 advantage thanks to the excellent form of Atkin – assisted strongly by Lucy Robinson and Charlotte Moore who also netted several times to put Great Britain firmly in control.
Jude Hamer then entered the fray alongside Kayla Bell, and it didn’t take the number 9 long to find herself on the scoresheet. Following her masterclass in shooting the game prior, she was in a similar mood this time out and managed to net 11 points over the course of the game.
Great Britain Women saved the best for last, as they finished the game with the highest scoring quarter of the contest. Coach Steve Caine opted for four changes heading into the last 10 minutes, and this flurry of substitutions paid off to help Great Britain finish strongly and add a further 26 points.
Joy Haizelden added to her personal tally with two driving lay-ups in quick succession, and Niamh Horan added a final 2 pointer with just over 10 seconds remaining.
GB Women will be delighted with such a strong start to the competition – tomorrow they return to action against the Netherlands.
