Under-par Panthers suffer costly defeat on the road

SAFFERY PANTHERS will be going ‘back to the drawing board’ to devise a new promotion plan after a costly 63-35 loss at CD Phoenix Two on Sunday.

The touring Sarnians have dropped from third to fifth in South Division Three after finding themselves outclassed by the rival green outfit.

The pinpoint precision of Phoenix’s goal-shooter played no small part in that, but from the off it had not been the clinical match Panthers had hoped to play.

While Panthers captain Tiff Gervaise-Brazier took the player-of-the-match honours, she admitted that Panthers had a much messier performance on the whole.

‘We are disappointed with the result and how we played [on Sunday] so we will be going back to the drawing board this week at training,’ she said.

Ahead of their fourth and final consecutive away game on 10 November, Gervaise-Brazier is now hoping to rekindle their winning ways.

‘We did have a great start and our performance in the last two away games could have been better, but it is still early in the season.

‘We are looking forward to having a home run of games as the back-to-back weekend travelling does take its toll on players.

‘We need to be winning the next few games in order to be in a position to be promoted.’
