Challengers Flyers v Upton ladies 7/10/17

Flyers took the first quarter comfortably. It could have been a higher lead but for unforced errors and missed shots. Going into the second quarter Flyers continued to turn ball, Laura Sargison at WD forcing her WA wide and tipping the ball out of court repeatedly. The defensive duo of Lizzie Udale at GD and Lizza Head at GK proved to be formidable as they started to work as a unit, bringing the ball out of defence equally effectively following a turnover. An improvement in the conversion rate of shooters Louise Clune and Linzi Dyer gave Flyers a further lead. 29-13 at half time.
Upton pulled some of the lead back in the third quarter as Flyers took 5 mins to settle following a few changes. The last quarter saw Flyers reply with some fantastic flow through court as they maintained attacking intensity, Alex and Lou converting comfortably with 12/13 and 6/7 respectively, finding their own comfort zones, Lou occasionally pushing herself away from hers and maintaining accuracy.
Final score 57-39 to Flyers. Good team work today, very supportive of each other.
