Saturday 10th November saw the mighty 3rd play host to Brads A at home. With a nice early 9:30am start the first ¼ saw the 7 on courts start off with some good solid passing around the mid court, working the defence and feeding the shooter some comfortable balls into the circle. The Brads defence was tight thought and the ¼ time score was 12-10 to NUNs.
The second ¼ saw the team pick up the pace and concentrate on working the angles and feeding from the top of the circle into both Liz and Jo. There was a mid court switch with Ash coming on at centre and Lisa on in the D circle. We put a lot of pressure over the ball and this resulted in us outscoring them 16-9. Halftime score: 28-19 NUNS.
On our way to reaching another objective of building up our For and Against, the 3rd ¼ saw more changes with Wai on in the shooting circle, Amanda in the defensive mid court and Ali back in at centre. The ¼ started strongly but the tight defence of Brads reigned up back in. We did have some good quick release balls in and around the goal third. 3 ¼ time score was 37-25 NUNS
Bring on the last quarter and our dominance continued was more evident. With Jo coming back into the shooting circle gave the feeders another dimension to the feeding. Amanda and Lisa teamed up in the defence end to continue the strong work that Anna had started. With a tiring opposition we were able to pull away and outscore then 17-9 in the last.
Final score: 53 – 37 NUNS
