North Adelaide Women with back-to-back wins in double header weekend

Final Score:

Woodville: 84

North Adelaide: 99

The second leg of the back-to-back Premier League weekend saw the Rockets host the Warriors in what North hoped would be their second win in two days. The Warriors, however, were looking to get back on track after losing to the Eagles in round 9.

After having a great outing the night before against Forestville, the Warriors took a little time to get into the groove of things for the Sunday lunchtime clash. The Warriors were struggling with their first few shots while North Adelaide were flourishing with the 6-0 open.

After a quick comeback by the Warriors leaving the margin at 1-point early in the first, Woodville only 5-points in the last 4:30 of the quarter with the Rockets soaring and scoring 22-points in this time.

A tough term for the Warriors, Aimee Herriman (5-points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists) received an unsportsmanlike foul on Jo Hill and a technical was given to Coach Herriman.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom for the Warriors as Katherine Perkas (19-points, 6 rebounds and 2 assists) attained a steal and buzzer beater giving the Warriors a little momentum to begin the second quarter with. 

Perkas started the 2nd term how she ended the first with a bucket, but this time finishing through contact and converting the free throw. However, this was overshadowed by a 9-0 Rocket run pushing Norths lead out to 24-points.

With North Adelaide shooting well from the field and Woodville struggling, the Warriors would have had to dig deep for a big comeback. The Rockets were up 17-points with under 3 minutes in the half remaining but the Warriors offensive run saw the margin down to as little as 11-points.

Ashley Claussen (24-points, 7 rebounds and 4 assists) opened the second half with a big Warrior triple which cut the margin down to 10. The margin got down to as little as 9, but Norrisha Victrum and her Rockets pushed their lead out once again.

Victrum posted 17-points, 6-rebounds and 7 assists including a fantastic no look pass sending defenders the wrong way for an easy 2. Jo Hill also contributed a double-double off the bench with 23-points and 11 rebounds. With a 9-point margin during the third, the Rockets went 29-points to 5 to finish the quarter leaving the Warriors trailing 23 heading into the final term.

Both clubs were off to a cold start in the final term with the Rockets missing their first 6. The Warriors missed their first 4-shots before Deanna Troia sunk one of two free throws. 

Woodville played hard until the end of the contest however fell short by 15-points despite outscoring the hosts 24-16 in the final term.

The Warriors will be looking to get their season back on track against the Bearcats, while the Rockets will look to keep chasing the top spot with a match against the Flames on the road. Both fixtures are on June 17th
