GB Women draw Edinburgh series
12 June 2012
The Standard Life GB Women’s side were victorious on Saturday at Edinburgh’s Meadowbank Sports Centre in their first appearance on home soil this summer. However their loss on Sunday brought them even with Canada over all.
Despite a game-high 14 points apiece from Jo Leedham and Natalie Stafford, the Canadians delivered a decisive late surge to gain revenge for Saturday's 70-57 defeat by Britain.
Leedham says her side must now look to raise their game when they head to Turkey for a four-team tournament next weekend in the next stop on their Olympic build-up.
"We spent a lot of time focussing defensively at our training camp so we are a little bit behind offensively and that shows… but until you practice these things enough, you have to expect that and it showed."
The team return to training camp at Surrey Sports Park this week in preparation for their upcoming tournament.
