After getting away with a narrow win the week before with 5 players the Blacks ladies came out ready to play against Norwood, welcoming back Stacey ‘Pogba’ Franceschinis (France World Cup reference) into the line-up.
We flew out to a quick lead in the first quarter, up 24-7 at the break. The girls looked after me early and I managed to hit four 3s to finish with 14 in the quarter, everyone’s favourite Pokemon Evie not far behind with 7.
We continued the pressure through the second keeping Norwood to 17 and pushing our score out to 42. The girls were certainly clicking this week, continuing on in the third, blowing the lead out 62-29, sharing the ball around and playing some real pressure defence.
The fourth saw one of Norwood’s main players go off with a broken finger which didn’t help their cause, I was not keen to take a peak! We forged on restricting them to just 4 points in the last, finishing the game with an 81-33 win. Pogba knocking down 6, Jazzy scored another handy 9, Laura finally put together four quarters finishing with 9, everyone’s favourite Pokemon finished with 23 and five 3s helped me on my way to 32.
Next week we take on West again at Port Adelaide.
