💥 ROUND 2 | MATCH REVIEW 💥

🎆 7PM | OPENS 🎆
Tough night at the office for the UTS Sparks Opens. The opening quarter set an exciting tone for the match with Rodrigo putting plenty of pressure over the Manly shots and collecting 3 early rebounds. Sparkies hit their strides in the second term with plenty of punch coming from feeders Parmenter and Eyles. The game then ebbed into Sapphire territory through the second half of the game with some sharp shooting. The switch of McDonell to GD, and Styles to WD made sure that there was plenty of full court pressure but not quite enough capitalising to take the win in the end. Despite winning the final 5 minutes 7-3, Sparks will do their homework and get ‘em next time.

Q1 | SPARKS 12 – 14 SAPPHIRES
Q2 | SPARKS 30 – 28 SAPPHIRES
Q3 | SPARKS 35 – 40 SAPPHIRES
Q4 | SPARKS 47 – 55 SAPPHIRES

🎇 8.40PM | U20s 🎇

The opening three-quarters of UTS Sparks U20’s against Manly-Warringah Sapphires was tightly contested, but it was the crushing full-court defensive pressure from Sparks that eventually reaped plenty of reward in the end. Special highlights include the agility and precision of Vassallo in creating some spectacular attack opportunities. She combined well with Hunt who was extremely impactful off the bench in the second half of the game. Bowden was tireless in defence, chasing scraps with her efforts paying dividends in the closing term.

Congratulations to starting Centre and Captain Campbell for leading her team to their first win the Samsung Premier League.

Q1 | SPARKS 12 – 10 SAPPHIRES
