Braves began their 2013 League challenge with the long road trip to Trowbridge to take on the Flames. Fantastic debut performances from Marina SALGADO netting 10pts and Joselynn KARUNGI hitting 4pts before an unfortunate ankle injury limited her from getting any more. After a summer of non-competition we we dropped point scoring opportunities as well as passes but there was no lack of our characteristic Brave motivation and determination. In the last 5 minutes of the 4th Qtr Braves went on a comeback and took it right to the wire with just seconds left to try and get the winner. Alas, not this time, but we'll get them on the home leg!!! Good start, now lets build on what we learn from Game 1. Voted Most Valuable Player by the opponents was Marina SALGADO but our returning Braves Anca CIMPEAN and Heide BUSSE netting 13pts and 12pts respectively helped command affairs on court.
