Dorking made a strong start to their final match of the season. Tight defence by Jess Hillson, Sarah Barton and Frances Arnold meant that Dorking forced Hampton to fight hard to keep up with them in the first quarter of the match. Good movement and strong shooting by both Sarah Binns and Alison Evans within the attacking third created opportunity for the home team to match Hampton goal for goal.
The long break since their last match took its toll on Dorking and in the second quarter they allowed Hampton to creep ahead. Despite a couple of lovely interceptions in the centre and defending thirds by Victoria May, playing as centre, and some strong passing into the circle by Laura Hillson, Dorking were not able to make up the lead that Hampton had gained in the third quarter. Hampton were able to make the most of the unforced errors of Dorking and capitalised on their lead in the second half. Although Dorking had some moments of brilliance, and worked hard throughout the match, Hampton finally won 31-21.
Player of the match was Sarah Binns, playing GA.
