Team Jets: Errors cost Jersey side chance of Tameside win

Team Jets v Tameside
Team Jets have won six and lost seven of their 14 games this season

Team Jets head coach Linda Andrews says errors from her side cost them the chance to beat unbeaten Premier League Two leaders Tameside.

The Jersey side lost 52-45 to the Manchester-based team, despite leading 22-21 at half-time.

"We gave our all, there were some really good passages of play, but there were a few errors which let us down, which is so maddening," said Andrews.

"We had it in us to win it, but there were just a few unforced errors."

Jets were five goals down at one point in the final quarter before getting to within one goal of their opponents - only for Tameside to again pull away, denying Jersey a losing bonus point.

"We can analyse the performance and say 'yes, that might have been our best performance over probably two and a half quarters', but those little errors that came in have lost us that extra bonus point, which I know the girls will be really mad about - but that's game of netball," Andrews added to BBC Radio Jersey.

The loss was a second successive defeat for Team Jets, leaving them fourth-from-bottom of the division.
