Lightnng were determined to overturn the result of their previous match with Randwick which they lost by 2. The team started confidently, moving the ball through court & finding shooter Maisie Simmonds with ease. Supported by Kat Honeywill at GA, Lightning edged into a lead.
Sarah Amey, back in the black & red after a 2 yr absense fed Simmonds with precision & after an uncharacteristic hesitant start, converted accurately. Sister Lily also helping out played well mid court, alongside Kim Locklin with Abby Raddon also stepping in. Toni Lowery at GD moved up from Thunder had a strong game supporting new youngster Rosanna Hurst at GK.
Overall it was a good squad performance from 8 players who had never been on court together before!
