Fusion off to good start

LEAGUE matches began with a convincing win by Fusion over Cummins.

Fusion’s excellent defence work in the shooting circle meant Cummins did not get as many goals as they deserved.The final score was Fusion 42 Cummins 12.

The second match saw a close clash between Barclaycard and Hornets.

The sides went goal for goal right up to the whistle producing a draw of 27 all.

The third match was G&Ts, versus Grafton Gate. This fiercely-contested match could have gone either way.

The first quarter started goal for goal and finished all square.

In the second quarter an injury to the Grafton goal shooter meant tactical changes were necessary.

It took Grafton time to re adjust and by the end of the third quarter they were down 13-15.

But by being patient and with key aerial work and excellent shooting from Tash Thomas, Grafton turned the game around to take the win 25 to 22.

The final match of the day was current league champions Ashmore Tornadoes against Helix.

Ashmore’s steady pace throughout the court and accurate shooting meant they took the win 36 to 12.
