Team come from behind for Essex Met League win
OPA Green produced a superb win over Essex Met League Division Five leaders Essex Open C in their latest outing at the weekend.
Having lost to the same opponents two weeks earlier, OPA’s team of Louise Francis, Bisi Owolabi, Rasheel Bhopla, Laura Taylor-Burge, Chesly Honeyghan, Wendy Dorviis and Kayla Browne fought hard from the start.
Their determination held Essex to a 10-7 lead at the first break and it remained close before half time, before OPA produced an excellent third quarter with some good interceptions.
Taking their chances to close the gap to 28-26, OPA went into the final quarter with confidence and managed to turn things around to claim a 34-32 win that ended Essex Open’s unbeaten record.
OPA Green take on Eclipse in their next fixture, while OPA Vets face Essex Open C and OPA White meet Woodford Warriors thirds.
