only having seven players, the cats were on the prowl and faced St.
Albans with confidence and ended up pouncing on their opponents in the
Coventry Cats started off with the lead and went in at half-time ahead
used the first quarter to get first game jitters out as it took awhile
to get into the offence and shut St Albans down in defence. However
once this was accomplished the Cats were playing and having fun.
third quarter was the key as the Cats moved the ball on offence with
sweet dishes from Wendy Smith and key shots from Emma Brown and Elaine
biggest strength of the second half was the teamwork on defence.
Cats held St Albans in the third quarter to only 8 points as the Cats
had 23 and in the fourth only allowing St Albans 12 points to the
Quality Cats were led by Elaine White with 21 points, Tiffany Mitchell
with 18 and Wendy Smith with 10 points.
