Lightning v Storm


This match usually closely contested started exactly that way, with very little between the 2 teams. With both ends converting accurately, there was never more than 3 or 4 goals separating them. With both teams playing in a similar style, the ball moved fluently from one end to the other.
The 1st & 2nd quarter was Lightnings game, forcing errors from Storm & pulled away to create more than a 8 goal lead.
changing both teams around again worked in Storms favour, going back on to the 3rd quarter was the best quarter for Storm, lightning was taken back & lost the flow of the game, with Storm getting tips, from mid court & defence, it took lightning 3 or 4 attempts to get it in & missed a couple on the trot, at the other end Storm shooting circle didn't miss, end of that quarter 2 goals in the match lightning still a head. Going back on to the 4th quarter, both teams wanted to win, it could of gone either way, a couple of errors & no fresh legs on either side, players were getting tired & making mistakes it just came down to who did less errors in the end & lightning won by 5.
Fantastic team performance on both sides, these young players playing positions they don't normally play, shows how versatile they have become.
