Braves remembered all to vividly the last time we played Speedwell which came down to the last play of the game and Speedwell narrowly took home the win by 1pt.
This time round, Braves were coming off the back of two excellent winning performances so we had high hopes of a good result. Maybe complacency crept in, maybe our shots just didn't happen to drop but we didn't play to our potential. We did however, make a comeback and the Braves started representing in the fourth. With under two minutes remaining Speedwell were only four points ahead and Braves had possession. Alas, like the flip of a coin, a game can go either way and a missed lay-up from Braves, foul to stop the clock, converted free throws from Speedwell, Braves timeout to advance up court but not converting the chance to points meant Speedwell had an unassailable lead with under 24 seconds remaining.
Brush it off and move on to the next match...a Trophy
