HSH Day 2: Monarchs v Fleet
Real competitive game so far. Goulding took over the game for a stretch at the end of the 1st/ early 2nd. Ridiculous play to dive and save a loose ball, getting it to a team mate under the basket for the layup in one motion.
Goulding and Farley have had no conscience, bombing away quite successfully from downtown.
Surprisingly, the Fleet have also won the boards as well as the turnover battle and have a heap more shots than the Monarchs. Which is a good thing, because the Monarchs length has made it hard for the Fleet to drive for easy shots. Only Goulding and Luettgerodt have been able to get to the basket and draw fouls. Schenscher has been able to score in the post, so keeping him on the floor will be key for the Fleet to hold on to this game in the 2nd half.
O'Gallagher has been good for the Monarchs. I thought when he went off, the Monarchs offence broke down and they had that scoring drought which allowed the Fleet to break away.
Lance Allred was looking ominous early, but surprisingly Galen Young has not had much impact so far.
