Final Score: WIN 52-27
Storm continue their march to the Division 3 title with their 15th straight win. The result didn't seem in doubt from the first quarter as the team hit 6 goals without reply and ran in a further 9 goals to take the quarter by 15-3; Mary (C) and Beth (GK) both making welcome returns to the squad. Coach Johnstone took the opportunity to rotate the team with Sharon coming in at WD and Becky at C and Mary moving to WA and while it took a little time for the team to settle they still extended their lead to 29-14 by half-time. Further rotations in the third quarter saw Fran come into the shooting circle and Lily move to GS, and accurate shooting from them both saw Storm further extend their lead to 41-21. It was more of the same for the final quarter with the defence limiting their opponents to shooting from distance, while some accurate long-range feeds from Becky and Fran to Lily and Iona mixed with some quick short-play saw Storm comfortably home by 52-27. Victory next week will ensure Storm win the league.
Squad: Beth Perry, Hannah Jones, Eleri Sewell (C), Mary Crapper, Fran Preddy, Lily Simmonds, Iona Wong, Becky Mogg, Sharon Greening
