Lynx break away

Mandurah Coastal Times - - SPORT - with Toni Farn­worth

WEL­COME back for an­other Lynx up­date.

The week­end’s game came off the back of a nine­day break, our big­gest gap be­tween games for the sea­son.

It gave our coach Andy Ste­wart a chance to make some tac­ti­cal changes and test these out in prac­tice, which could prove in­valu­able as the sea­son pro­gresses.

Up next was our game against Univer­sity of Can­berra.

The first half was dead­locked, as Can­berra came out with en­ergy, giv­ing them­selves sev­eral sec­ond chance op­por­tu­ni­ties on the boards. They led 40-38 at half-time. It was a dif­fer­ent story af­ter half-time with the Lynx in­creas­ing the in­ten­sity, which cre­ated fast break and sec­ond chance points.

Court­ney Wil­liams was the stand­out in the sec­ond half, scor­ing 20 of her game high 26 points and go­ing nine of 10 from the field for the half.

There was also ex­cep­tional team de­fence played, with the girls hold­ing Can­berra to 27 points for the sec­ond half to come away with the win, 8567.

This week we start a se­ries of dou­ble-header week­ends, firstly in Bendigo where we play the Spirit on Fri­day, be­fore we re­turn home to play the Syd­ney Flames on Sun­day at 1pm at the Ben­dat Bas­ket­ball Cen­tre.

Against Syd­ney, we will be look­ing to avenge the loss from our first game of the sea­son.
