Round 5 Recap #RiseUp

Round 5 recap.

On Sunday November 11 Sydney got off to a very promising start and it looked as though they may claim their first win of the season. However, Spirit managed to extinguish the flames and pull out a third win at home making them undefeated at the Bendigo Stadium.

Becca Tobin and Nadeen Payne were stand outs and combined had a huge impact on the final result in the dying moments.

With 4 seconds on the clock Payne made a 2pt lay up (assisted by Tobin) to put Spirit in front (66-64) before Sydney called a time out.

Possession was back with the Flames and they were determined to take the win but Tobin had other ideas and a steal with 2 seconds to go cemented Spirit 2nd place on the ladder.

Payne contributed 14 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists.

Tobin claimed MVP bragging rights with 11 points, 7 rebounds, 4 assists, 3 steals and 1 block.

The Bendigo Bank Spirit now sit 2nd on the WNBL ladder.

Our next game is at home!

Where: Bendigo Stadium When: Friday November 16 @ 7pm
