U16 Nationals - Perth Day 7

CLASSIFICATION FINAL: U16 Women Game 3 – SA Country vs VIC Country

Both Victoria Country & South Australia Country were looking to win this game in an effort to improve their final standings.

It was SA Country that struck first as they raced away to an 8 point lead in the first quarter thanks mainly to some good shooting with 64.3% from the field, including 2 of 3 from long range.  Continuing this feat in the second period, SA was able to stretch their lead to 21 points as they headed to a 50-29 half time score line.

 SA outscored a now shell-shocked Victoria thanks to their pressure defence and efficient offence. Down by 29 at the last turn, VIC Country staged a mini 6 point break in an effort to jolt a possible comeback. But SA’s accuracy (lead by Olivia Thompson – 29 points @ 83.3%) proved too much for the VIC team as they walked out 33 point victors.

 Leading Scorers:

SA Country – Olivia Thompson 29; Alex Wilson 13; Steph Talbot 10
