Lightning 39 v Park Ladies 36

 

Lightning took on opponents Park Ladies who were newly promoted to Division 1 this season. With only seven players available & with a debut by Holly Duerden who is new to the club saw this to be a very contested match, both teams were applying pressure forcing each other to make errors, the first qtr saw Wendy & Holly D who had not played together before in the shooting circle, but from their play you wouldn’t have known this & converted the goals giving Lightning the lead 13-8 at the end of first qtr. Park applied the pressure in the 2nd & 3rd qtrs and managed to close the gap to 3 goals going into the final qtr. With some excellent defending by Laura, Elri, and Kat, also good attacking play by Sarah and Holly W saw Lightning maintain the lead and win the match 39-36
