Natalie Bur­ton FOR the sec­ond time in un­der two weeks, the Perth Lynx took to the court against the strong and ex­pe­ri­enced Bendigo Spirit.

This time around, the game was played on our home ground with the Red Army back in full force at the Ben­dat Bas­ket­ball Cen­tre, also known to lo­cals as 'The Lair’.

Af­ter a slow start for the Lynx, the sec­ond quar­ter saw them 10 points down, but not be­fore a 13-1 run that helped them grasp the lead at half­time.

The Lynx con­tin­ued to weather ev­ery storm Bendigo threw at them through­out the sec­ond half.

And af­ter al­most 40 min­utes of phys­i­cal and in­tense play, it looked like the Lynx might scrape a win.

How­ever, af­ter miss­ing a num­ber of easy shots within the last three tan­ta­lis­ing min­utes, the Lynx fell vic­tim to the Spirit for the sec­ond time this sea­son, beaten 67-73.

Amidst the frus­tra­tion and dis­ap­point­ment of los­ing, it is clear that the Lynx have al­ready made strides this early in the sea­son af­ter pre­vi­ously los­ing to Bendigo by 20 points.

As they say, the third time's a charm, and in less than two weeks time th­ese teams will meet again, with the Lynx primed and ready for a win.
