A FIRED up Noradjuha-Quantong made quick work of Jeparit-Rainbow on Saturday, taking the lead at every change.

The Bombers got in front early, doubling the Storm’s score in the first two quarters. But Jeparit-Rainbow fought back all day, trying to stay in the contest. 

The final score was 51-28.

Bombers coach Yolanda Molineaux said she was happy with her side’s performance.

“We moved the ball well in attack and didn't rush it into the ring, which is what we have been working on in preparation to play the top three sides again,” she said.

“Our defensive pressure was excellent and our attackers in the mid-court were outstanding.

“However, we weren't relentless enough for the full 60 minutes and we need to focus on converting every single turnover we get.”

Molineaux said the side would keep focusing on their fitness and moving the ball in attack over the next few weeks. “I can see the improvement already in the short time we have been working on it,” she said.

Molineaux praised Georgia Francis, who was having a stellar season in wing attack.

“The combination of Georgia and Ash Ryan is really coming along nicely and it is great to watch,” she said.

“Lucy Brand was my stand out for the day, she used her speed like I asked of her, shot well and took the shooting load off Sharon Fedke.

“She's growing in confidence every week and I’m very excited for her future.“

Storm’s best players were Bridget McKenzie and Ebony Spokes.
