Yateley Silverbacks Ladies 60 Camberley Goldhawks 47

The ladies team finally delivered on the promise that has been evident in earlier games by beating the team currently leading the division in an exciting game in Da Jungle tonight. The team started well - matching their best ever first quarter score to lead 18-6 at the end of the quarter. By half time, the lead had been extended to 35-18 and spirits were high.

All members of the team contributed to the score - including Clare, who came off her sick bed to play, and had to retire early - but made her mark with a score and her first ever foul. Caitlin made a new PB with 16 points, and Katie also sank an impressive 14 points. The team exploited the Goldhawks slow transitions, and there was a lot of unselfish play leading to some great assists. Rebounding was strong, and the defensive performance was one of the best of the season. The final quarter saw the Goldhawks try and come back - but the 'Backs lead was unassailable. Great work ladies - lets hope it's the first of many. Thanks coach Morgan for keeping the faith!
