‘POWERADE’ FRANKSTON BLUES WOMEN NBL1 ROUND 4 PT. 2 RECAP
“A tightly contested game from the tip-off, the first quarter went bucket for bucket the whole way. The biggest margin being three points which was how they entered the first break. The damage in this game came in the second quarter, and it was obvious from the body language of the Frankston Blues that they felt the game well and truly slipping away. The Blues have fallen victim to big quarters from their oppositions in every game so far this season. A 23-12 quarter with Rebecca Pizzey scoring 13 of them was just too much for them to handle.
The Blues had one win and four losses coming into the game and they hung their head early into the second half as they failed to best the Nunawading Spectres. They traded Buckets for the rest of the way, however the Blues poor second quarter became their undoing. Apart from the second quarter they were well and truly in this game, but their body language was just all wrong after they went down and the coaches will be all over that before there next game.
A great effort across the board from the Spectres as Pizzey and Chelseas D’Angelo had a big influence all game. They poured in 20 and 21 points respectively with most of those coming in that damaging second quarter.
In a good sign for the Blues they had five players score in double figures, showing that the signs are there.
The Spectres have now won two in a row and four for the season. The Blues on the other hand have slumped to five losses already after only six games.”
