However, the QUALITY and DEPTH of talent in our squad is what won us the game tonight. With 3 of the 5 players previously mentioned out of the game with fouls or selfless acts of BRAVEry (Kayleigh we all wish you well, hope its not a fracture) it was up to our other players to stand up and be counted. Everyone should be proud of their contribution tonight as we saw out an exciting conclusion to the game. It came down to the last 2 secs of the game and the opponents call timeout and advance to inbound in our defensive 3rd with scores 61-59 to us. Lockleaze execute a play designed to get an open shooter for 3pts but Braves were told, deny the inbound, pressure any shooters but if they get the look for the 3pt'er....do not foul in the act of shooting!!! With the ball in the hands of Lockleaze's eventual shot taker, Braves had two cleanly pressuring the perimeter shot. Buzzer goes off mid flight but falls short and Braves take home a hard earned but totally deserved win, a win that each member of the team contributed toward.
You GOTTA LOVE BRAVES BASKETBALL!!!!!! Drama, excitement and VICTORY!!!
PS: A personal thanks from Kayleigh and myself to team mates Eliza RAWLINGS and Sarah HARWOOD who sat in A&E with Kayleigh. I'm so happy we have such a wonderful group of women!!!
