Sydenham Emeralds too strong for Thorns

 

EMERALDS played Thorns and had an even start, leading from the beginning. Emeralds played steadily battling the rain with centre court players as they played with fight, linking well and driving into space to feed the ball to the shooters.

The second quarter was the best for Emeralds defence as they played with energy, getting valuable interceptions and and rebounds, keeping the score at 16-11.

Emeralds came back strong for the third quarter with both shooters driving for the ball and despite the weather keeping their shooting game strong, extending Emeralds lead.

The last quarter saw the intensity step up, with great play throughout the court allowing Emeralds to keep their well-deserved lead, leaving the score at 33-26. Pom went to Anna, upom went to Katie H and opom went to Katie R.
