Swags gives good en­ergy to team­mates

The Advocate (Perth) - - SPORT -

How­ever, this in­jury did pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for one mem­ber of the team, Ali­son Sch­wag­meyer.

‘Swags’ is one of the hard­est work­ers in our group and has been the MVP in the SBL the last two years, play­ing as an im­port for the Lake­side Light­en­ing.

She has been train­ing with the team in the hope of gain­ing her Aus­tralian res­i­dency so she can be a per­ma­nent mem­ber of the squad.

Af­ter only find­ing out she was el­i­gi­ble to play the morn­ing of the game, ev­ery­one in the team was rapt for Swags.

The good en­ergy from the morn­ing car­ried over to the game against Dan­de­nong, with the team earn­ing a hard-fought 88-78 vic­tory.

The girls trailed by two at half­time but poured in 31 third-quar­ter points to take con­trol of the game.

It was a bal­anced team per­for­mance, with six play­ers scor­ing in dou­ble fig­ures.

Sami Whit­comb was par­tic­u­larly im­pres­sive, stuff­ing the stats sheet with 22 points, 12 re­bounds, seven as­sists and three steals.

We are home again this week on Thurs­day at the Ben­dat Bas­ket­ball Cen­tre, play­ing the Townsville Fire at 6.30pm.

With the team now play­ing the Lynx brand of bas­ket­ball, it is sure to be an ex­cit­ing con­test.

See you all there.
