Southern Steel

I watched a great game of Netball at Dunedin’s Edgar Centre this evening. There are two home games in Dunedin this year, and I’m hoping to get to both of them.

The mood was jovial – a family-friendly atmosphere.  The queue stretched out around the corner, and we got to our seats just in time to see the Canterbury Tactix early casualty, Phillipa Finch come off the court.  Southern Steel had an unconvincing start, but hit their straps in the second quarter, sufficient to take the lead.  They held a two-point lead for much of the match, but really began to hum after a crisp intercept – when the score was 31-29.  The Steel shifted up a gear, and five unanswered points followed; Griffin was deadly accurate and Wipiiti played with flair.  The Tactix struggled to get back into the game from then on.  The final score was 49-40. The Steel retained their unbeaten record in Dunedin, and reversed the result from their last match against the Tactix just 10 days ago.  And the afternoon time-slot meant we were even home to relieve the babysitter in time for tea.
