Highs, lows on the road

Natalie Bur­ton AF­TER a dis­ap­point­ing loss last week to the reign­ing cham­pi­ons the Townsville Fire, the Perth Lynx had a quick turn­around be­fore they em­barked on a five-day road trip in search of their first win for 2016.

The first stop-off was Syd­ney, the home of the Syd­ney Uni Flames, who sat third on the lad­der, one po­si­tion be­hind the Lynx.

A last quar­ter rally wasn’t enough to get the win and the Lynx went down by 10 points.

Fur­ther­more, Lynx cen­tre Louella Tom­lin­son suf­fered an an­kle in­jury that meant she was un­able to play the last half of the game and was ruled out for the game against Can­berra. We’re sure she will be back in no time! Right from the tip-off we squashed any hope Can­berra had of get­ting a win over us in a dom­i­nat­ing per­for­mance. The league now takes a two-week break. The Lynx are back in ac­tion with an­other home game on Jan­uary 24; see you there!
