NBL1 North - Results Round1
I have been waiting for this, the start of our NBL1 North season, 2021. What a let down.
As is usual, in Qld, we start with local rivalries. So we (USC Ripcity) played our local rivals, the Sunshine Coast Phoenix, and were soundly beaten in both women's and mens' games. Their mens, team is much closer to full strength than ours, but honestly, that's just an excuse. They await Jarrod Bairstow's availability while we are waiting on Krebbs and Krslovic and possibly one other whom we're still chasing. The absence of Josh Tueta is due to a 4-game suspension from a pre-season game, to start the season. Oh well!
Won't go into game-stats and who did what, suffice it to say they did it all and we didn't!
The silver lining is that we have no option but to get better.
Friday's game, nearly a local rivalry, featured Townsville v Makay. Flames and Heat (both Townsville) got the double over Meteorettes and Meteors by 4 and 3 points respectively. I should have watched those games!
Bunch of other games from today onwards and would be great if fans of those teams told of their games.
