Women’s First Team Looking Forward To Bromsgrove Bears Challenge

Our Women’s First Team take on Bromsgrove Bears on Saturday as they look to avenge their pre-Christmas defeat in Longbridge.

Rockets were second best for much of their previous encounter, losing by 12 points to Bromsgrove in December.

Coach Peter Mintoft’s women will be boosted by the return to the squad of Antoinette Torgbi and will hope that a first league win of the season is within reach.

The Opposition

Bromsgrove Bears are currently fifth in the table, but are only four points off top spot following their victory against us at the end of last year.

Hopes will now be turned toward a play-off place, with their current good run of form looking crucial to the run-in as they look to climb out of the division.

Around the League

Elsewhere on Saturday, Derbyshire Trailblazers host Team Birmingham Elite as they both look to string a consistent run of form together and aim for a playoff spot.

Then on Sunday, Tees Valley Mohawks play away at Nottingham Wildcats, with Mohawks looking for their second win of the season.
