BASKETBALL: Shock stun the Flames
6:00am Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Latest News
SWINDON Shock Ladies mounted a great comeback to beat last season’s league & cup winners Phoenix Flames 46-42 on Friday night.
Debutant Anna Samuel scored all of Shock’s five points in the first quarter but it was Flames who led by seven at half-time.
In the third quarter, the game appeared to be running away from Shock until skipper Coli Cunningham went on an inspired scoring run.
Shock kept the pressure on Flames and finally took the lead after quick thinking by Rachel Cejer who fed Cunningham to score.
Shock played the clock and held on for the win which was a welcome birthday present for coach Antonio Wilburns.
