New Zealand Vs Uganda
The game is under way with New Zealand starting with the ball and straight away it is a turn over. It gets to the Uganda goal GS, shot and GA got the rebound and stepped out so it was NZ ball. After NZ shooting a few goals Shannon Francois made a excellent intercept, delivering a great pass into the goal circle, with Malia Paseka shooting a great goal. After these first few minutes of the game Uganda has had great defence keeping the shooters out of the way for NZ.
Down the other end Karaka has made a lovely intercept leading to a great goal being shot for NZ. NZ having great teamwork with Jodi Brown making the ball stay on the NZ side. There has been nice pressure by the silver ferns making Uganda struggle and go off side. There was a lovely save by the Uganda C but NZ still manage to get the ball with 2 nice strong passes down the court to the NZ shooters. There has been great defence by both teams with a injury time out in the middle. Uganda have been doing some risky moves by shooting and passing with one hand. What a great pick up by Laura Langman! At the end of the first quarter New Zealand came out winning 20-3.
Uganda have came back on the court really strong ready to play another quarter. Uganda has a new GA on and that has made a big difference by shooting more goals and straight away. After that Uganda have the ball with a 2 -0 start in the 2rd quarter. Uganda had a very unlucky step but a nice pick up by Uganda after. There were lovely passes by NZ making Jodi Brown shoot an amazing goal. Uganda centre pass went right into the hands of Malia Paseka and a centre pass does not normally go into the opposition GS hands. At the end of the 2rd quarter 39-16 with NZ leading and Uganda having a better quarter than their first quarter.
There was a short pass by Uganda so it was a turn over to NZ which went out of court. Then Uganda stepped so it was NZ ball again. A lot was going on! On the Uganda side they had a lot of stepping in the circle and NZ was hustling. There was lovely passing by Uganda but WD on their side got a warning by the referee. At the end of the 3rd quarter, New Zealand was still leading 56-24.
Maria Tutaia is coming onto the court to play her 100th game for the Silver ferns. Great ball by Maria Tutaia shooting but the ball fell out of the hoop but rebounded, making a quick pass to Malia Paseka. Great intercept by the Uganda GK but she was unlucky and it was NZ ball. GK for NZ, Karaka, made a big pass to Laura Langman who just missed it. There was a nice rebound by Leana De Bruin making the ball go down to the NZ shooting circle with a goal on its way. The final shot was by NZ and both teams have never meet before. The final score was 76-33 to New Zealand at the Sydney Olympic park.
