Fire fans light up the Townsville night

Fire fans light up the Townsville night
Our loyal Townsville Fire fans were out in full force last Saturday night for our win over Adelaide Link Lightning in the second semi final.

They were in fine voice - I thought they were going to blow the roof off the Townsville Entertainment Centre!

It's great to have such strong support from your local fans.

I got a few more minutes on the court than I have had in previous games. Every minute on court playing in a final is invaluable experience. Now is a good time for me to be showing some improvement and consistency.

Looking back at the game, I think it's pretty clear where we beat Adelaide. By the end of the match we had 22 more rebounds than them, so with that much more of the ball we could create so many more opportunities.

Playing finals really adds a lot of pressure, because the stakes are so much higher. There is no “we'll do better next week”.

I wasn't very easy to be around in the lead-up to Saturday’s game. The nerves got the better of me a few times.

On Friday the Fire will be down in Melbourne for the preliminary final against the Bulleen Boomers at the Veneto Club.

Due to the unfortunate loss of Shelley Hammonds with a knee injury, the Boomers will be lacking that bit of extra height.

For me, playing a shorter post position gives me a chance to have more of a presence on court and hopefully have significant impact on the game.

Every time I come off the bench on Friday, I've got to make it the best two or three minutes of my career, then come off and do the same thing later in the game.

Thanks again to all our fans for making Saturday’s game such a great night.

You can follow the Fire against Bulleen on WNBL Live Stats and on
ABC2 from 8pm AEDT and replayed on ABC1 on Saturday from 4pm AEDT.
