North West Thunder – Well done

U18 Girls Inter-Regional competition held at Palatine Leisure Centre, Blackpool on 4th & 5th February 2023.


Following a tough opening game against the South West, the girls proceeded to improve game by game over the course of the weekend. Two solid performances against the South East and Scotland meant the team had a chance to win gold in a winner takes all final game against the North East.


The team produced a strong display and pushed until the very end of the game to try and take the win but ultimately were held to a close 14-12 loss. The run of results in other games meant the team took a bronze medal home in what was a tightly contested competition.


Lucy Blenkinship was voted the team’s MVP and was also the tournament’s top goal scorer.


Thanks to all the other teams and coaches for such a competitive weekend, and thanks to all the officials and volunteers who gave up their time to run a fantastic event.
