The Flames Beat the Amazons in the Semifinal
Among the supporters was Anne Baverstock, the Brighton Phoenix Club Administrator who has offered the following brief observations:
In the 1st quarter we ran in good points and this gave us confidence.
We showed great determination during the 2nd quarter and maintained a good scoring rate.
The 3rd quarter was the key to the game – defense was great and we managed to hold them to 7 points.
By the 4th quarter, they had been COMPLETELY OUTPLAYED and simply ran out of ideas!
I was very impressed with rebounding throughout the game. Also, I can't measure possession but we definitely had the most of it!
Final Score: Amazons 48 – Flames 71
Scores by Quarter: Q1: 14-12; Q2: 14-20; Q3: 7-14; Q4: 13-25 -> The Flames outscored the Amazons in each quarter, aside from the first quarter.
Player Scores: Emma (1pt); Jemma (2pts); Bea (6pts); Liz (8pts); Kara (8pts); Katie (13pts); Zsuzsanna (16pts); Maria (17pts)
MVP of the Game: Zsu-octopus-arms-kangaroo-legs-zsanna! Awesome steals. Killer moves in the paint. Rebounds. Rebounds. Rebounds. Unstoppable.
The Flames will play in the Sussex Cup Final against South Down Suns this Saturday, May 17 at BACA – 3pm tip-off.
