Flyers bounce back

THE Swan Hill Lady Flyers climbed up two spots to take third place on the CBL north east women's conference ladder with a dominant 81-22 display against the Wangaratta Lady Warriors on Saturday.

In front of the home crowd at the Swan Hill Basketball Stadium, the Lady Flyers were strong from the onset, restricting the Warriors to just three points in the opening term while sinking 22 points of their own.

The onslaught continued from Swan Hill, extending the margin to 36 then 55 at the conclusion of half-time and into the final break, respectively.

The Lady Flyers eased off in the last term, but still outscored Wangaratta to take out the 59-point victory. 

Swan Hill head coach Jenna Jenkins was pleased her side was able to bounce back after suffering their first losses for the season in last fortnight's double header with Maryborough Blazers and Bendigo Braves.

"We weren't overly happy with our two losses a couple of weeks ago, so it is always good to get a win," Jenkins said.

"It was our overall pressure which was instrumental in defeating Wangaratta.
