Summary

The Bendigo Spirit have backed up their first win with a big win over the Perth Lynx at home.

After a back-and-forth first quarter, Spirit managed to stretch out the lead to 17-points at the main break on the back of some efficient three point shooting.

A 14 to 6 point run by Perth Lynx at the start of the third quarter saw them eat into Spirit’s lead bringing it back down to just nine points, but a strong 29-point fourth quarter proved too strong and the Spirit finished the game as 19-point winners.

Megan McKay led the team in scoring with 20-points at an efficient 9/12, while Chloe Bibby was best on for the visitors with a game-high 28-points.
