SUNCOAST Lynx secured a double win in Round 7 of the Holden Cruze Cup. On Wednesday night Lynx came home with a compelling victory against Logan Wildcats, winning 57 to 34.
All 10 players received court time which assisted in creating a formidable side.
Coach Jenny Brazel was impressed with her team saying it was a "really good game".
Special mention was made of the youngest team member, Dominique Scott. At just 17, Scott is a rising star, having just returned from the national 17-and-under competition.
In her first game back with Lynx, she shot with amazing skill, helping to bring about a 20-7 win in the third quarter.
Brazel attributed the impressive final score, not only to the shooting, but to the team effort during the second half. The execution of the plays, strong defence and turnovers were all factors which led to the Lynx’s success.
Lynx faced a much tougher game against Kedron-Wavell Services Club Cougars on Saturday.
Lynx had to fight hard to win the game 51-49. Brazel conceded her team "didn’t have a very good start".
They were down by eight in the first quarter, but with some exceptional shooting from Stephanie Wood (94 per cent accuracy) and Shannon Holmes (84 per cent accuracy), Lynx were able to work their way back into the game.
Lynx’s defence, consisting of Laura Clemesha, Emma Tickner and Brienne Creet, along with centre court player Laura Scherian, had their work cut out for them.
"They had a tough job and had to work hard for each turnover," Brazel said.
But the Lynx coach was pleased with her team’s strong full court defence saying "everyone worked really hard…that’s what helped get us over the line".
In the Queensland State Netball League, Suncoast Lynx drew with Carina Leagues Club Tigers on Saturday, 33 all.
Coach Christine Voge said it was "a very tough and physical game".
Lynx managed to maintain a two goal lead for most of the game and fought extremely hard in the final quarter.
Both the Holden Cruze Cup and QSNL Lynx will play the Brisbane West Lions on Wednesday night at Logan Metro Indoor Sports Complex.
