Lightning’s win over Challengers 37-32.
With a number of key players missing, it was a super team performance. The combination of Lucy Martin & Pollyanna Banyard in the shooting circle was untried & took time to settle. With Lucy taking on most of the shooting & Polly the playmaker role, it proved to be successful with scores level at half time.
Abi Tucker & Ellie Gabriel worked well together, turning ball & rebounding any missed shot.
Mid court, all players worked tirelessly to keep possession under great pressure by the oppositions tight marking.
Going into the final q 3 goals down it was going to be a battle till the final whistle. However Lightning just changed gear, and with Lucy netting 15/16 they took the q 16 goals to 8!
It’s really difficult to single out a player of the match but Lucy Martin in only her 2nd match of the season, converting 35/41 just edged it.
