Storm record an impressive win on the road in Regional League 3 (South).
Storm took all the points in an exciting 67-52 victory away to Somerset side Sydenham Gems to move into third place in the league.
The win makes it two out of two at the start of the new Regional 3 season.
The visitors, starting with the line up that finished against Tor Knights last weekend, put in two high intensity quarters, recording scores of 20-10 and 20-9 to lead 40-19 at half time.
“I thought our first half play was extremely good,” said Head Coach David White. “We really went for it in the first half, turned a lot of ball in defence and our shooters were in great form.”
Cerise Lauder, Rebecca Thompson and Kirstin Lamb worked tirelessly in defence to turnover ball as Storm limited the home side’s shooting opportunities.
In the shooting circle Hannah Cox and Caitlyn Oates shared the goals as Storm built a comfortable lead by half time.
Maia Adams replaced Lamb at Wing Defence in the third quarter as the home side hit back to take the period but still trailed 53-36 .
White made two more changes at three quarter time as Niamh Symons came on at Goal Keeper, Lauder moved to Goal Defence and Esme Adams came on at Wing Defence.
“It was great to get everyone on court this week,” said White. “I thought we were good value for our win but with still plenty to work on at training this week.”
