Lightning made a great start to the season with a hard fought win over Randwick. This match was closely contested throughout, with scores even at half time.
The new shooting partnership of Lauren Brice & Lydia Hallbrook, took time to settle, but began to "gel" during the 2nd half.
15 year old Hallbrook demonstrated she is well able to step up to this level, netting 25 from 30 attempts.
The mid court trio of Sam Hogg, who unfortunately had to leave the court injured, Fran Peedy & Lucy Smith , moved the ball through court at speed. After the injury, Becky Mogg, replacing Hogg, slotted in well.
Eleri Sewell & Jo Hutchins made quite a formidable duo at the back, turning ball & rebounding well.
