Loungers 37 v 21 DSBC Kiwis

The first quarter was off to a slow start with both teams defence working hard. DSBC Kiwis quickly settled and scored the first three goals, with super passing up the court from Holly King. Loungers fought back though and Kaitlin Leslie controlled the shooting circle with her first game back for Loungers in two years. The quarter ended 12–4 to Loungers. 

Kiwis made some changes at the start of the second quarter and came back on court fighting. Great defence in the circle from Kim Johnson forced Loungers mid court to mix up the passing going into the circle. Loungers were settled in their play, however, and didn’t get rattled. The score at the end of the quarter was 23–8 to Loungers. 

Kiwis Rhianne Colvin was brilliant in the third quarter, bringing a strong presence and consistent shooting to the circle. Despite this, both teams struggled to maintain possession all the way up court. Loungers remained calm, though the quarter was very low scoring, ending 28-12 to Loungers. 

After the low scoring fourth quarter, both teams came on hoping to increase their lead. It was an even scoring quarter with both teams giving it their all. Loungers won the game 37-21.  Player of the match went to Kaitlin Leslie for Loungers and Holly King for DSBC Kiwis.
