Storm v Stroud Red 

After trying to get more players than five on Thursday night, with  Captain Ben Hania, out with recovering from eye surgery & others still away with the christmas break, Storm had a squad of 8 in the end, but at the last minute thunder needed another player,  with this last minute change storm needed to stamp their authority, in the 1st qtr, as last time they played Storm lost by 10,  Storm took time to do this, after the 1st qtr 16-17 to Stroud, this was the start of either team could win, after 2nd qtr 29-28 Storm up by one, with goals going in either end the only way Storm could win is forcing the errors, getting tips & interceptions, this made a big difference between the teams in the 3rd qtr 40-37. The last qtr with the Christmas turkey playing its part on fitness, Storm were really flagging, but needed to fight for every ball,  in the last 15 minutes, still goal for goal, Storm just ahead playing sensible  netball, taking care of every ball, this paid off & won 49-45
Great team effort .
