Lynx struggle in Dandenong

The Perth Lynx have been defeated by the Rangers on Sunday afternoon in Dandenong for their third loss of the season, 76-96.

It was the first time the Lynx have lost while playing away from home.

The Rangers got off to a quick start, outscoring Perth 33-24 in the first quarter, and the Lynx just couldn’t get themselves into the game.

Kayla Steindl led the Lynx with 18 points, which all came from behind the three-point line with six baskets from behind the arc.

Asia Taylor finished with 17 points, four rebounds and two assists.

After missing the first 11 games due to injury, Shyla Heal made her long-awaited debut for the lynx, checking into the game late in the second quarter.

The Lynx will continue their three-game road trip as they now head to Townsville to take on the Fire on Friday, 14 December.

Tip-off is at 5:00pm WST.
