SPRING CAR­NI­VAL MONEY BACK

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

THE Townsville Fire are now the only un­beaten team in the WNBL this sea­son af­ter tak­ing down the Can­berra Cap­i­tals 76- 66 in their first home game last night.

The Cap­i­tals showed they are the real deal with a strong first half, but the FIre’s class shone through to earn them a de­ci­sive vic­tory.

The Fire were down 35- 37 at the main break, but im­port Lau­rin Mincy and cap­tain Suzy Batkovic led a much- im­proved shoot­ing per­for­mance in the sec­ond half.

Fire coach Clau­dia Bras­sard said it was her side’s play­ing depth and fit­ness that saw them through.

TRENT SLATTER RE­PORTS: P67

Pic­ture: EVAN MOR­GAN

HIGH EF­FORT: Zitina Aokuso rises above the Cap­i­tals’ Ezi Mag­be­gor to score for the Fire.
