Week 2: LB Comets 21 – 37 A-line Flyers
In the first quarter Comets took a little while to settle, with both Anita (WA) & Caryn (C) out of their usual positions, and we were down 5-11. Moving into the second quarter, with Anita back at C and Caryn WA, this was our best quarter. Comets battled hard to pull back the deficit but A-Line’s shooting consistency improved and Comets trailed 13-18 at the end of the quarter
After half time the heat started to get to us and, despite valiant efforts by the defence (Pat W, Pip & Celia), there were just too many loose balls which A-Line were able to convert. Q3 ended 17-29 so Comets switched thing around for the final quarter. A change in the circle saw Nikki move from GA to GS and Pat G from GS to GA but, sadly, the die had been cast and Comets lost the match 21-37.
Team: Nikki (Capt, GA/GS), Pat G (GS/GA), Caryn (WA/C), Anita (C/WA), Pip (WD), Celia (GD), Pat W (GK), Lesley (Sub)
