Storm continue to remain unbeaten after 8 games with another hard fought victory. An evenly contested opening, with Storm finding it hard to hit their usual levels of consistency, saw Stroud take a 10-11 lead. An improved second quarter with Ella taking some good interceptions, Mary making her presence felt in mid-court and some accurate shooting from Iona saw Storm begin to dominate and take a half time lead of 23-18. The third quarter saw Storm start to move away and despite some questionable umpiring decisions and confusion over the correct score early in the quarter, the lead was extended to 33-21, with Eleri playing a captain's role at GD limiting Stroud to only 3 successful attempts on goal. Further positional changes in the final quarter showing the depth and flexibility of the squad, with Eleri and Hannah working hard to limit Stroud's shooters and some flowing play through the court saw Storm take the game fairly comfortably in the end.
Final Score: 44 - 30
Squad: Hannah Jones, Eleri Sewell (C), Sharon Greening, Becky Mogg, Fran Preddy, Lily Simmonds, Iona Wong, Ella Gardener, Mary Crapper
