Brave Women made their re-appearance in WEBBA after two years out. This first match of the Trophy Competition was against a team who have thrashed their opponents in the league by 30pts, 18pts, 32pts, 28pts and 16pts in 5 out of their 6 wins. Our Brave Women established themselves as a team to be reckoned with!!!! We bossed it on defense and worked it offensively. Eli SIEGLOVA had an outstanding game getting top score with 10pts. She was followed closely by Raquel INIESTA on 9pts and Heide BUSSE also on 9pts. Almost everyone got on the scoreboard, those who didn't, contributed with great defensive efforts and assists to team mates. Coaches highlight was seeing his group of fearless BRAVE Women setting the standard for the remainder of our matches this season. Our women, got battered and bruised playing a physical but legal game against some BIG forwards. When there were 50 / 50 balls up for grabs we were determined to make it OUR ball!!!. We were confident on the ball and drove it hard to the hole taking the hits and drawing some 'And-1' opportunities. This was an exciting game that came down to the last play of the game. Braves were told what to do, they executed well and the open shot presented itself at the buzzer but alas we couldn't force it into overtime. An outstanding and satisfying start to our season. Thank You.
