Today we woke to a more relaxed start, allowing us to recover from the previous day's tough match. After having a nutritious breakfast, we walked to the supermarket to stock up on supplies for the match ahead. After having a few hours to relax by the pool and talking team tactics, it was now time for the game. We discovered that it would be more tactical to balance out the teams so after shifting positions of players, everyone quickly adjusted to their new positions and team mates.

The light blue team faced tough opposition, and displayed great fight in each quarter. Our tactics showed success as we won each quarter, resulting in an overall win. This was especially thanks to Carolina for her fantastic defending with great interceptions and pressure, as well as Anastasia's agile movement and superb shooting in the 'D'.

The navy blue team faced a mentally and physically challenging opposition. Unfortunately, this showed throughout the course of the match. However, the girls showed tremendous perseverance as they did not give up in their toughest match yet. Annabel and Caitlyn demonstrated excellent work in the centre third, gaining control of their opponents. Although they came away with a close loss, the dark blues left feeling mentally stronger and even more determined to win their next match.

We then returned to a much needed cool down in the pool, and proceeded to a lovely dinner at the hotel ready for our final match the next day.
