Date: Sunday 21 October
Score: TBB 0-5 BH
Venue: University of Bath Sports Training Village
This was going to be the biggest game of the season for Team Bath Buccaneers against Investec Premier Division Bowden Hightown.
Following yesterday’s defeat against Lydney Buccs were determined to work on areas of their game that had let them down , and they made an excellent start creating chances against a very experienced Hightown defence, but were unlucky not to be able to capitalise.
Buccs defence matched the Hightown forwards with some great play from the full back pairing Rachel Finday and Rosie Bennett but Hightown managed to open the scoring 23mins into the game.
Buccs continued with some excellent play from midfield pairing of Jess Rickman and Helen Earle to go into half time only 1-0 down.
Hightown started the second half with a faster tempo and despite Buccs work rate continuing they were unable to hold the score line and eventually were beaten 5-0 .
The game was good experience for all that was played at a good pace which Buccs will take into their next league game .
