Mishaps 41 v Challengers 47

It was a very closely fought game from the offset, with both teams giving it their all.
The first quarter saw Mishaps come out on top, attacking well and feeding the ball quickly into shooters Morgan (GS) and Alicia (GA) who rarely missed a shot. Going into the second quarter with the lead, Mishaps kept up the momentum with great linking play in the centre third between Kelsey (C) and Suzanne (WA). Interceptions in the Challengers’ attacking third from Mishaps Leah (WD) and Elaine (GD) helped ensure Mishaps kept their lead at the end of the first half (23-16). Challengers shooters, Danielle (GS) and Valerie (GA), began to settle into the game in the third quarter making it a very tough job for Mishaps defence. Excellent play from Challengers C, Cara, meant that at the end of the third quarter the score was 34-34. The last quarter was frantic with everything to play for but Challengers came back strongly and finished the game 41-47 Challengers. Players of the match were Alicia Hunter for Mishaps and Cara Montgomery for Challengers. Special thanks to Dean for time keeping.
